The UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Government of India signed a US$ 105 million financing agreement recently for a project in the northern state of Uttarakhand that aims to double rural incomes, reaching over half a million families across the state.

It will do this by supporting smallholder farmers, agricultural laborers, and micro and small agribusinesses to start and expand competitive businesses and focus on food production that is climate-resilient.

 

The Rural Enterprise Acceleration Project (REAP) builds on the successful Integrated Livelihoods Support Program (ILSP) which closed in 2021.

 

ILSP helped over 650,000 rural people across the state to find sustainable livelihood opportunities, by organizing producer groups into self-reliant cooperatives known as livelihood collectives.
