The “Securing tribal livelihoods in Odisha” (STLO) project was started in February, 2012 in Rayagada and Gajapati districts of Odisha. This project aims to improve food security for 3,000 households, approximately 15,000 people, including women and people with disabilities (PwD). It will deliver a combination of interventions to enhance the capacity of households and communities to improve income though Farm and Non-Farm based livelihood options, ensuring optimum utilization of government schemes, improving health and nutrition, and integrating climate change adaptation interventions. The project will strengthen Farmers’ Groups and cooperative activities to establish sustainable livelihoods, encourage better natural resource management, enhance their skills base, and foster local market linkages. It will also address control of malaria, which is endemic in this region. Training and capacity building activities will equip households, groups, communities and local leaders to utilize various Government schemes, and build resilience for disasters.
