Rural development

In India, The Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) and its sister agency, the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme, India (AKRSP (I)) focus on  supporting marginalised communities’ economic development and environmental protection through community-based approaches to natural resource management (NRM) and livelihood enhancement at the village level. Particular focus is also put on facilitating wider learning and outreach at state and national levels. The programme currently works in over 2,500 villages, directly benefiting almost 1.4 million people,  in the states of Bihar, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.
