Baseline market survey for Livelihood Opportunities for the youth & others in Odisha




TRIOs undertook a market assessment and value chain analysis for various enterprises to determine the livelihood opportunities for the youth in Odisha.

Key processes adopted for the assignment were as follows:

  • Household survey conducted in 3 districts of Odisha i.e. Kalahandi, Malkangiri and Nuapada.
  • 783 youth – girls and boys were also interviewed
  • Focus Group Discussion (FGDs) and In-depth Interviews (IDIs) conducted with key stakeholders.
  • Market Assessments and Value-Chain analysis undertaken

After data processing and analysis a comprehensive study report was prepared and submitted. The report reflected on the status of skillsets and aspirations among youth. Value chain for agriculture, NTFP was undertaken to examine how much value could be retained at community level and enabling livelihood for youth.  This helped CFI in framing intervention strategies for the 3 districts.
