10YFP STP Portfolio: UDYAMA’s Sustainable Livelihood and Fair Climate Initiatives project for resilient communities in India
The state of Odisha, India is home to several popular tourist attractions such as the ancient city of Bhubaneswar, Harishankar waterfall, the Konark Sun Temple and Ranipur Jharial temple. Nearby these tourism landmarks, tribal and local communities that are susceptible to the effects of climate change are gaining a deeper understanding of climate-adaptive systems and sustainable lifestyles, thanks to the Sustainable Livelihood and Fair Climate Initiatives project of UDYAMA with the support of the ICCO cooperation.
Implemented in the Bolangir and Nayagarh districts, the project ensures livelihood security and supports the use of green energy among the economically challenged sections of the society, aiming towards boosting the livelihood and income of over 4,200 families through community resilient farming systems.
