Good Practices for Local Governance

A workshop on inclusive planning and development of Gram Panchayat Development Plan was undertaken by Arupa Mission Research Foundation on 19th March 2018. Members (Elected Representative- sarpanch, Deputy Sarpanch, Secretary- Social and Secretary- Physical) of 7 Panchayats participated in the same. There were 36 participants in total.

The training was led by Dr. Sridhar Seetharaman, Senior Advisor, Arupa Mission Research Foundation and retired professor from National Institute of Rural Development who was assisted by a trainer and AMRF staff.

This initiative is a continuous process. A Gram Panchayat Development Plan based on SDGs and district goals has been drafted with facilitation and support from our end as part of Arupa Mission Research Foundation’s initiatives on strengthening existing systems for sustainability. The response from participating Gram Panchayats has been good.
