Project Management & Livelihood Interventions

07-09th November'08

TARAgram, Appropriate Technology Centre, Orchha, Madhya Pradesh

Introduction

India needs to generate at least 10 million new livelihood opportunities a year over the next 15 years to sustain its economy. This is easier said than done. With the changes that are taking place in the external world, there has been a paradigm shift in the job/livelihood market. Poverty is no longer a rural phenomenon and increasingly we find attention being focused on urban poor who are often the migrants. One also notices an increasing shift from agriculture to manufacturing and services sector. It is expected that traditional sources such as agriculture will have limited potential to generate new livelihoods.

Promoting livelihood in such a situation remains a challenge. Organizations need to develop ability to conceptualize appropriate livelihood interventions. They also need understanding of socio-political environment, markets and technical systems. Micro finance has emerged as a major tool to address the issue of access to financial resources for the poor especially women. Credit is a major bottleneck and if that is taken care of then it certainly has a positive impact on the livelihoods of the people. The challenge is are the organizations engaged in micro finance ready to face the next which is augmenting livelihoods of the poor.

This programme seeks to impart knowledge and skills on the tools and techniques used for identification, selection, preparation and appraisal of livelihood projects, their implementation and monitoring & control.
