This report is an annual publication and it explores the contemporary issues in the livelihoods sector. It provides an overview of the livelihoods situation from a macro viewpoint and includes an update on policies and finances on livelihoods in India. Another key feature of the report is it presents a legal and fiscal framework of livelihoods. This is the only report that aggregates the experiences and challenges of the livelihood sector, analyses case studies, and reports the progress of both government and privately run programmes. It reviews and updates the important government programmes in the past one year. Another key aspect of this report is it analyses the current opportunities and challenges for people in the North East in various sectors. As the report gives a glimpse of the progress and problems of rural livelihoods in India, this may help policy makers for corrective measures in implementing different rural livelihood programmes, which ultimately benefit the rural poor.
