Strengthening Rural Livelihoods in Bundelkhand
AbstractThe Bundelkhand region, one of the poorest parts of central India, attracted keen attention of development observers because of grinding poverty, oppressive social-political system and a hostile agro-climatic setting. Against this backdrop, an attempt is made to examine the impact of a few development initiatives of State and non-government organisations on the livelihood security of the poor. The initiatives taken up by some of the NGOs yielded positive results. The paper throws light on some of these. An attempt is also made to suggest a model for transferring technology to the rural poor in the Bundelkhand region.
