23 WADI Projects

WADI - Organic and Non Organic WADI (Orchard Development on uncultivable land and providing  beneficiaries the basic knowledge and advantages of orchard farming, providing organic manures, organic fertilizers, organic certification, identifying viable & sustainable micro enterprises). “WADI” programme is agriculture based farming system in the rainfed tribal areas, which envisaged empowering women through community participation, initiatives for micro financing as well as processing and marketing of products. The project is focused on development of small fruit orchard (WADI), agriculture improvement through inter cropping and restoration of denuded land through soil and moisture conservation measures. It was observed that this programme is an effective tool for addressing the livelihood problems of the tribal families. NABARD became the nodal agency for the programme and has created a dedicated fund for the project namely Tribal Development Fund (TDF) with an initial corpus of Rs.50 Crores which is to be supplemented by similar contribution from central and state government. GVT currently has 23 WADIs out of which 6 are organic and 17 are non organic WADIs.
