TechnoServe is demonstrating and refining scalable actions for inclusive, sustainable growth and competitiveness of the guar market system in India. Through this program, TechnoServe aims to achieve a 25 percent increase in guar farming revenues for participating households. The Sustainable Guar Initiative – a partnership with chemical company Solvay and cosmetics company L'Oréal – also seeks to enhance environmental awareness in the region through groundwater-neutral best practices. This will increase the level and sustainability of the livelihood gains achieved under the initiative.
