175 Livelihoods Sustainable Energy Driven Application
The 175 solutions in this book span across livelihood sectors and showcase sustainable energy driven solutions for varied productive use across agriculture, animal husbandry, micro businesses and textiles and crafts.
Driven towards enabling access to sustainable energy for productive use and developing requisite ecosystems at decentralised scales for local ownership. Our aim is to improve incomes, value capture and build resilience at the bottom of the pyramid.
Inclusive sustainable livelihoods, building on the expertise of local communities, is a critical way to provide the poor with a way out of poverty. Many of these sources of livelihoods, for example, sewing machines, agri processing machines, integrated rice hullers, power hammers, blacksmith blowers, are assets that the poor can rely on to create the appropriate social safety nets. SELCO Foundation works with key livelihood stakeholders, to strengthen solutions for the most marginalised via sustainable energy.
SELCO Foundation employs a value chain approach and demonstrates the ability of sustainable energy led solutions in disrupting the end-to-end value chains, specifically in the agriculture and allied livelihood sectors.
