This paper reviews the design of two new DFID projects in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh, India. The projects aim to contribute to the Government of India’s efforts to eliminate poverty through support to its watershed development programme. The design of the two projects ran parallel to the development of the Sustainable Livelihoods (SL) approach and framework. This paper explores how these emerging concepts fed into the design process of the two projects.
