First Edition

February 2014 | 168 pages | SAGE India
The State of India’s Livelihoods Report (SOIL Report) is an annual publication that aims to document recent trends and issues in the sphere of livelihoods promotion of the poor. A one-of-its-kind report, it is the only document that aggregates the experiences and challenges of the livelihoods sector, analyses case studies and reports the progress of both government and privately run programmes. 

This volume of the SOIL Report provides an annual policy update in the context of livelihoods promotion of poor. It reviews the existing primary research on the agricultural sector to highlight key trends, identify the main livelihood gaps, and give an overview of key livelihood interventions that seek to address these gaps. It covers the current state of skills policy in India and the evidence that we have so far, of its impact and effectiveness, the current economic scene and employment prospects and industry demand in 2013. It also explores the links to livelihood outcomes and behaviour from a social protection perspective, especially for the poor and the workers within the informal sector. As a new feature, the SOIL Report 2013 also carries a Statistical Atlas of Livelihoods, which illustrates some of the major indictors of the status of livelihood using disaggregated data at the state level.
