State of India's Livelihoods Report 2012

State of India's Livelihoods Report 2012

First Edition
Edited by:

January 2013 | 232 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 with respect to the 4Ps-People, Policy, Promoters and Potential.

This volume of the SOIL Report discusses the current debates in the livelihoods sector, livelihoods of the poor and how they are making both ends meet and the policies and plans on livelihoods. Further, it takes stock of the progress and development in the past one year in flagship programmes for poverty reduction through livelihoods enhancement and the growing importance of CSR in livelihoods promotion of poor. With the shrinking space of NGOs and the increasing importance of the government and the private sector, the Report also takes a look at the changing role of civil society and the emphasis on the State as a livelihoods promoter.
