2012 Sitaram Rao Livelihoods India Case Study Competition


The competition is a part of the Livelihoods India Initiative that has been initiated by ACCESS to provide a national platform that enables research based documentation of, and emergence of a more nuanced discourse on, key challenges in promoting secure livelihoods for the poor. These in turn, are expected to trigger evidence based discussions on public policies and framing of more efficacious strategies of interventions, while helping to build a larger consensus within the field. It is with these objectives that ACCESS has forged partnership with XLRI Jamshedpur for a more robust initiative.
