Abstract

Introduction: Sustainable development is crucial for balancing progress with resource preservation, especially in marginalized communities like tribal regions. The WADI model, pioneered by NABARD and introduced in India in the 1990s, has proven successful in fostering sustainable development in arid tribal areas.
Objective: This study aims to explore the impact of WADI projects on the sustainable development of tribal communities in the remote villages of Dudhnai Block, Goalpara district, Assam.
Material and Method: The study employs a qualitative research approach, gathering data on migration patterns, agricultural production, natural resource management, social cohesion, and economic advancement through interviews, surveys, and field observations.
Results: Preliminary analysis reveals positive outcomes regarding increased agricultural yield, reduced migration rates, improved social cohesion, and economic empowerment among tribal communities participating in WADI projects.
Conclusions: WADI projects hold promise as a viable model for sustainable development in tribal regions, contributing to poverty alleviation, food security, and overall quality of life enhancement while preserving natural resources for future generations.
