Sustainable livelihoods

The most vulnerable group in Indian society are the rural poor as they often depend on natural resources for their livelihoods, for instance from agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The country's natural resources have for a long time been under strain as a result of various human activities. Now climate change poses an additional challenge, increasing the vulnerability of rural communities which is threatening their livelihood.

LEAD India focuses on providing sustainable livelihoods to vulnerable communities, our efforts in Nicobar Islands and southern Odisha to generate sustainable livelihood opportunities for the community can be seen via our projects below:

·         Securing tribal livelihoods in Odisha

·         Building sustainable livelihood on Tsunami affected Great Nicobar Islands
