Building Resilient Livelihoods: stories from the Chittagong Hill Tracts

In an effort to making a difference in the livelihood of people living in remote areas of the Chittagong Hill Tracts, the ECHO funded FAO project undertook actions aiming at supporting critically food insecure rural men and women and increasing their resilience towards chronic and seasonal shocks and stresses through an integrated approach that involved distribution of agricultural inputs, cash transfers and extensive training programmes on vegetable and fruit production, jum rice management and seeds preservation, poultry management, and training on nutrition, food safety and food preparation. In addition, the project also supported the construction of a small water harvesting facility at community level and provided training on community water management in order to support the resilience of remote men and women to water scarcity during the critical dry winter period. The video documented the success stories of direct beneficiaries under the project. The documentary shows the diversifying lifestyle of the beneficiaries with the provision of inputs and trainings as a direct positive impact of the project. By learning better techniques of poultry rearing and fruits and vegetable production, the project beneficiaries are now able to pave a better future for their next generation.
