Project Description

The Hans Foundation

The project supported by THF and implemented by Himalayan Action Research Centre (HRAC) aims at livelihoods, food and nutrition security of 3,000 marginal farmers of 60 villages in Uttarkashi and Chamoli districts. The main objective of the project is to promote climate smart agriculture practices by increasing knowledge and skills of farmers and develop diverse income generation options for sustained livelihoods.

In these remotely located districts of the state majority of the population belongs to the socioeconomically backward classes. These farmers are being organized into Community Based Organisations (CBOs) like Farmer Groups, Federations and Cooperatives. The project seeks to collectivize farmers into 120 Farmer Interest Groups (FIGs) and further into two Farmer Federations (FFs). So far, a total of 60 farmers’ groups have been promoted, covering 2,676 farmers.

Over 13,950 commercial grade pear saplings have been grafted on wild pear (Mehul) trees, which is a climate resilient wild fruit species and disease resistant potato tubers have been distributed to 1000 farmers.

Under high value floriculture approximately 2,400 Lilium Bulbs have been planted and market linkages provided. Diversification in agriculture has been promoted as a strategy with 1,500 farmers by encouraging them to concentrate on growing commercially marketable vegetables. In addition, a soil-testing lab has been set up to provide soil health management services.
