Livelihood options of the poor and vulnerable have become limited today. Even though agriculture provides livelihood to more than 70 per cent of India’s population and is the backbone of India’s self sufficiency in food grains, it is becoming unsustainable. Marginal and subsistence farmers are becoming more vulnerable.
The livelihood programs of IGSSS broadly focus on the aspects of land rights, land development, ensuring food security through service delivery and improved production. Significant emphasis is also being given on linking the communities with provisions of livelihood finance.
IGSSS’ approach also ensures more people’s participation, involvement, contribution and improves chances of long term sustainability.
