Facilitating Agricultural Regeneration Measures- North East-III,
The Facilitating Agricultural Regeneration Measures in Northeast (FARM North East) project implemented by DAN in 11 villages in Jalukie Block in Peren District in Nagaland since 2013, reaches out to nearly 1000 households engaged in agriculture. Through the intervention, the organization has been able to lay a sound foundation for comprehensive development in the agricultural sector in the targeted area. The result indicates 60% increase in agricultural output and enhanced engagement of people in scientific cultivation, multiple cropping and collective involvement in marketing in the local markets. Further, the project enhanced peoples participation and initiatives in addressing the concerns pertaining to the general socio-economic and environmental concerns in the region. The
Strategic Objectives of the Project
