Producer collectives, advisories and technology enhance farm productivity and farmer incomes; resource centres and skill training improve social security access and incomes for migrant workers, young women and men

Promoting farmer-producer groups eased farming operations through collaborative planning, input, and harvest management. Technology integration for localised weather forecast and crop advisories, access to weather information, and agri-advisory supported farmers in better decision-making. We strengthened self-help group entrepreneurship in fisheries-based livelihoods and animal husbandry. Migrant Resource Centres opened bank accounts for migrant dependents, ensured insurance coverage, enrolled them into SHG networks, and encouraged productive investments with remittance incomes. At destination sites, they provided health and employer engagement services. Skill upgradation opened up new opportunities in the construction and geriatric caregiving sectors for young women and men.
