The State of India's Livelihoods (SOIL) Report is an annual publication that aims to document recent trends and issues in the sphere of livelihoods promotion of the poor. A one-of-its-kind report, it is the only document that aggregates the experiences and challenges of the livelihoods sector, analyzes case studies, and reports the progress of both government and privately run programs with respect to the 4Ps—People, Policy, Promoters, and Potential.
This volume of the SOIL report focuses on agriculture. In particular, some of the themes that the report covers include effects of government policies on livelihoods in agriculture, government schemes for agri-based livelihoods (with a focus on MGNREGA), new-generation initiatives in agri-based livelihoods by NGOs and the private sector, the current scenario with respect to agri finance and agri marketing and the impact of climate change on agriculture.
