Our Themes

This includes value-chain development, SWOT analysis of livelihoods sub-sectors, enterprise development, micro-finance, and migration. We have also assessed technology, incubated appropriate technology, and catalysed technology development, transfer and dissemination.

Noteworthy among these has been our involvement in supporting the business planning of Farmer Producers’ Organisations (FPOs) and building the capacities of women-owned businesses. One of our assignments on understanding the dynamics of the traditional milk market, and facilitating actions for strengthening the sector (testing an action research methodology) has won the ICAR National award for significant contribution to “social research”.
