Addressing 2nd Generation Challenges in NREGS- Promoting Rights of the Workers for Sustainable village development in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh

Description The proposed project is a pilot intervention in a few selected Panchayats where we propose to demonstrate community engagement for effective implementation of NREGS and address the 2nd generation challenges. The model would be shared with the district and state level officials so that it can be replicated in the other Panchayats over a period of time.
Geographical Coverage Panna (Madhya Pradesh) and Rajnandgaon (Chhattisgarh)
Objectives
  • Supporting the Panchayats to develop comprehensive plans in a participatory manner and ensuring convergence with relevant departments.
  • Support the implementation of NREGS and other schemes in order to converge the resources for improving the lives of the workers.
  • Building capacities of the Gram Sabha and Panchayat as well as sensitising the concerned agencies for participatory implementation and monitoring of the works
  • Mainstreaming the pilot initiatives though process documentation and sharing the learning with the district administration and the State Employment Guarantee Council for replication in other districts
