Women’s Farmer Producer Groups in Bihar

This program, Women’s Advancement in Rural Development and Agriculture (WARDA), is being implemented with the World Bank-funded Bihar Transformative Development Project in close coordination with JEEViKA (under the aegis of the Government of Bihar). WARDA develops approaches for lifting women smallholder farmers out of poverty through market-led Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs). The program provides technical assistance to producer groups and facilitates producer group formation with the aim of empowering rural women and improving their lives and communities.
