Enabling poor rural people to overcome poverty

Globally, The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a specialized agency of the United Nations dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries.

However, in the context of Tamil nadu, the goal of the programme is to enable thousands of tsunami victims living in the coastal areas to return to a stable and productive way of life. Targets include people who live in coastal areas, including fisher folk, wage workers in the fisheries sector, farmers and agricultural labourers. There is a specific focus on marginalized groups such as women who are heads of households and members of scheduled castes.

Post-Tsunami Sustainable Livelihoods Programme for the Coastal Communities of Tamil Nadu

The programme’s aim is to improve the livelihoods of people affected by the disaster. It promotes community participation and planning. The programme includes support for sustainable resource management in coastal areas, access both to rural financial services and to a social safety net in the form of insurance, and community-based sea-safety and disaster management. It also provides for employment generation and skills training, and assistance in programme management. One of the programme activities has the aim of empowering women to improve their incomes from marketing fish.
