Improving incomes from livelihoods is critical to building resilience in rural, remote communities. Several government schemes are strengthening value capture at the last mile through better post-harvest management, food processing, micro entrepreneurship with SHGs, FPOs and individuals.

In this compendium, we showcase 10 schemes promoted by different Ministries that have been unlocked across 6 states in South, East and Northeast India, to enable decentralised and clean- energy led livelihoods.

Solutions range from flour mills, millet and spice processing units, roti and papad rolling machines for agriculture and food processing to digital service centers, power hammers, sewing machines and eateries, egg incubators, and cold storage units.
