Enhanced rural microenterprises and safe migration strengthened livelihoods

A significant part of our work in strengthening livelihoods focused on building village communities’ institutional and technical capacities for better market engagement and improving production systems. Farmers were trained in improved farming practices and rice-fallow farming, leading to the formation of Farmer Producer Groups based on a land-based cluster approach. In animal husbandry and fisheries, trained cadres supported efforts to promote better practices in habitat, nutrition, and disease management. Through our migration programme, we provided comprehensive support to migrant workers and their families through a network of resource centres at both source and destination locations.
