IIHMR University Partners With Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation (BRLF) To Offer a Certificate Programme in Rural Livelihoods

 

Builds Capacities of Tribals from 6 states

The Rural Development (RD) sector today faces complex challenges of growth, equity, climate change, and social & economic security of the poor and vulnerable communities. This context has impressed upon the RDprogrammes of government and non-government organizationsa growing need for intervention strategies that are reflective, robustly designed, and implemented through an innovative and adaptive approach. It is clear thatthere is an urgent need to address this capacity building challenge by preparing a cadre of rural professionals who are capable of engaging in the rural development sector specially at the sub-district levels; be it through NGOs, government institutions or as elected representatives of the PRIs and/or cluster level federation leaders.

Towards this end, BRLF and IIHMR University have brought together 15 leading organizations in the rural livelihoods sector to facilitate a multi-centre, multi-topic curriculum that covers different dimensions of rural livelihoods.For the first batch, 30 candidates have been selected from states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarh.

This initiative will be part of a series of capacity building programmes under the BRLF Capacity Building Initiative, designed and implemented as per the needs of target groups and of different institutions currently working in the sector (Government and CSOs). “

Dr. MihirShah shared that,“This course will be a game changer in the rural livelihoods sector since the design and delivery of the course will provide a unique opportunity to the tribal youth to learn of various livelihoods domains andaddress the issue of growingshortage of trained human resources in the sector.”Dr. Shah thanked the IIHMRUniversity and 15 knowledge partners under the CB initiative for making the certificate programme possible.
