Farming is considered as a non-remunerative activity for the majority of farmers who are small or marginalized landholders. Inefficient resource-utilisation and land degradation as well as over dependence on rain-fed agriculture worsen the situation. Small farmers face additional challenges of poor access to affordable and good quality inputs; lack of technical knowhow to improve productivity; weak institutional linkages; lack of affordable credit and lack of transportation and storage facilities leading to post-harvest losses and distress sales. There are limited opportunities for non-farm livelihoods as well. SES has adopted a comprehensive approach of sustainable farming and with local non-farm livelihoods such as poultry and goatry. SES focuses on enhancing livelihoods and productivity. It is an inclusive, participatory manner as well as initiatives to create and strengthen community-level institutions. SES promotes Climate resilient agriculture systems for resource-use efficiency and higher yields, farmer aggregation and credit and market linkages; building capacities and enabling access to government schemes and resources.
