Laya makes a difference in empowering marginalized communities


The Scheduled areas are resource rich with annual rainfall of more than 1100 mm/year. Unfortunately, these adivasi communities remain cash poor and hence vulnerable to market deviations and climate changes. LAYA through its Natural Resource Management Unit enables communities to improve agriculture productivity by watershed management and value added technologies in their lands such as:

  • System of Rice Intensification (SRI)
  • Mixed traditional crops
  • Agroforestry and forest regeneration of economically viable species
  • Planting fruit bearing trees (horticulture)
  • Vegetable cultivation on homesteads and kitchen gardens
  • Seed Banks with traditional variety of seeds close to extinction
