Infrastructure for Climate Resilient Growth in India
The Infrastructure for Climate Resilient Growth (ICRG) programme is a 43-month programme to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) and three states of India (Bihar, Chhattisgarh and Odisha). Supported by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) of the British High Commission, the project aims to improve the design and implementation of Natural Resource Management activities under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS).
The focus of the programme is to improve the durability of assets enshrined in MGNREGS by building climate resilience, and thus to enhance the livelihood security of the rural poor and vulnerable groups, especially women. As a key resource partner, IIEC is helping to build the capacity of MoRD and State agencies in planning and implementation of climate-resilient infrastructure.
