Urban Development Action for Neighbourhood
The 'Urban Development Action for Neighbourhood (UDAN)' project aims to support Cyclone Fani affected habitations to build back sustainable livelihoods. It will build technical skills to take advantage of increasing opportunities in the construction sector, strengthen capabilities of women's groups to produce for proximate urban markets, and improve the natural environment to generate household incomes using land resources. UDAN will supplement the efforts made by the Government of Odisha in seven villages in Khordha district.
The project aims to enable human resources to create secure and sustainable short and long term livelihood opportunities for the Cyclone Fani affected habitations.
