Based in one of India’s least ‘developed’ states, we address environment and people-centred issues - from forest, water and land rights, livelihoods and mining issues, to climate change and disaster risk reduction. Our proactive and informed approach has brought RCDC acclaim and transformed lives in Odisha. Our grassroots interventions, research and expertise all inform our policy-level work, where we raise the debate and influence key decision-making in order to benefit our communities.

Since 1993, RCDC (Regional Centre for Development Cooperation) has been leading work focused on natural resource management and livelihoods for the development of Odisha. We understand that a holistic approach is necessary and we now address a broad spectrum of environment and people-centred issues - from forest, water and land rights, livelihoods and mining issues, to climate change and disaster risk reduction.

The principle underlying our operations is that the appropriate management of natural resources is necessary to address current development problems in a lasting manner, and that the local communities - with their traditional knowledge and stakeholder interest - are the best managers of these resources.
