Adivasi villages in Jharkhand, Odisha face severe neglect, reveals new report


A survey on the status of Adivasi livelihoods in Jharkhand and Odhisha has revealed appalling facts. A report titled “Status of Adivasi Livelihoods 2021” was recently released by Professional Assistance for Development Action (PRADAN), an NGO that works with professionals to improve the lives of the poor and marginalized at the grassroots level.

The report highlights the difficulties and scarcity that the Adivasi population is currently facing in the country, which negatively affects their quality of life.

The report covers a variety of issues, such as how the cultural ethos of tribal communities shapes their livelihood practices, the resource deficiencies that they face, external interventions that affect their living conditions and other characteristics of the households such as literacy, land ownership, income and food security.
