Abstract: Despite the fact that women are the world’s principal food producers and providers, they have long been deprived of their due share and identity. Kothapally is one of the initial watershed projects that demonstrated on ground that a holistic development model not only conserves natural resources for sustainable productivity and income improvement but also harnesses the synergies to tailor the benefits in mainstreaming women farmers. This has showcased the model to focus on selective activities that directly benefit women. Some important activities that increase incomes of women revolve around interventions like milk production, kitchen gardens, composting, value addition, non-farm livelihoods through capacity building, collectivization and market linkages.
