Off Farm

The off-farm sector which employs 40 million people, is largely unorganized and the pandemic-induced depression in the market has put into risk the lives and livelihoods of dependent communities.



The disruption in fish catching and supply chain activities have impacted over 16 million people, mostly the native and marginalized fishing communities, pushing them into the trap of unemployment and hunger.

Over 10 million tribals are traditionally dependent on forests for their livelihoods. The pandemic and the disruptions in the market channels have led to unemployment, food insecurity and health concerns among these forest dwelling communities.
