Emerging India Acceleration Program
About the Program
Climate Change affects livelihoods, food security, energy consumption, health, and economic activities ( to name a few facets), but people who predominantly rely on local natural resources for their livelihood are the ones who are the worst affected.
How can we build climate resilience into the local communities while ensuring rural prosperity?
Sangam's Emerging India Acceleration Program(EIAP) is designed to promote institutional cooperative structures and rural agriculture SMEs to improve investments in value-addition assets closer to the farm-gate. We are targeting SMEs that leverage indigenous produce and natural resources to meet local demand or export high-value agricultural produce with Geographical Indications (GI) to global and regional markets. We believe these SMEs can provide livelihood opportunities for local communities and drive local wealth creation while aiding sustainable energy technology adoption and climate change resilience at scale.
