National Rural Livelihoods Promotion
TechnoServe is working to improve rural livelihoods in India by creating profitable, bankable and self-sustaining commodity chains in the agriculture, livestock, and non-timber forest products value chains.
TechnoServe is a designated Technical Support Agency for the National Rural Livelihoods Promotion Society (NRLPS) with the mandate to set up Value Chain Support Cell (VCSC) to provide technical assistance and capacity-building support to participating State Rural Livelihood Missions (SRLMs) in the development of commodity value chains and market linkages in the Agriculture and Allied, Livestock and Non-Timber Forest Products sub-sectors. The VCSC will provide technical assistance and support to SRLMs in developing projects within these sectors that are profitable, bankable, and self-sustaining in the long run.
In its current phase, TechnoServe is working to capacitate state level implementation agencies across the six identified states of Assam, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Jharkhand.
