IGSSS

ASIA - INDE

Indo-Global Social Service Society (IGSSS)  is an organisation working with the mandate of promoting a humane social order based on truth, justice, freedom and equity. Established in 1960, IGSSS works for the development, capacity building and enlightenment of vulnerable communities across India for their effective participation in development. With its presence in over 11 states, IGSSS has focused on promoting sustainable livelihoods, building climate resilient communities and livelihood systems, empowering youth as stakeholders of change, protecting lives, livelihoods and assets from the impact of disasters and advocating for the rights of the urban poor.

The aim of this program is to strengthen the capacities of 80 marginalized communities and 5 networks of civil society organisations to promote sustainable and inclusive urban development in 5 Indian cities (Ranchi, Bhubaneswar, Raipur, Guwahati and Shillong), through the development of action plans, the demonstration of sustainable organisational and economic models and the strengthening of dialogue with local authorities.

 

The program in the Resilient Communities (CoRe) focuses on the following activities :

 

  • Training and capacity building for poor urban communities to raise their awareness of climate challenges and issues related to urban poverty
  • Workshops and practical work for the incubation of eco-responsible neighbourhood models and income-generating activity models. Support for the launch and support of these experimental models and then dissemination to other communities. Documentation of best practices and community experiences adapted to climate change in urban areas
  • Awareness campaigns carried out by climate action groups, aimed at people from the middle class, disadvantaged rural areas, schools and universities and other institutions to initiate actions to respond to the climate crisis
  • Training for members of the IGSSS team on the climate crisis, the just ecological transition and the challenges inherent in urban areas.
