Dimbeshwar Rabha

Dimbeshwar Rabha is accorded the Food for the Future Award for his innovative idea of growing black pepper as an alternate source of livelihood through “Small Farm Integration for Sustainable Agriculture and improved access to market” project. The Award was presented by Jackie Leitch

Mister Rabha has been a part of an integral project – ‘Small Farm Integration for Sustainable Agriculture and Improved Access to Market’ – funded by Tata Trust. The impact that resonates through his project cuts across the three very important aspects of socio-economic mobility keeping in mind environmental sustainability. He has been able to create a team who has acquired his knowledge management skills regarding multiple cropping and demonstration of farming along with the most relevant mode of business – in black pepper and turmeric. Some Dimbeshwar’s innovation can be visibly seen in the usage of forest wastelands for cultivation. The idea of black pepper being grown as an alternate source of livelihood has been extremely remunerative helping the people of the communities to address the needs of meeting their basic amenities.
