This Policy Brief highlights the good practices that have been adopted by the Kerala Housing Board for ensuring eco-friendly and affordable housing projects. It makes recommendations for up-scaling of these sustainable practices to be mainstreamed into affordable housing projects across India.
The growing population and increasing urbanisation have led to a huge increase in consumption demands, placing a burden on India’s natural resource base. This policy brief focuses on medium and small enterprises, especially rural social enterprises, as an agent for local economic development through adopting greener and fairer practices.
The idea of development is to make sure that there is a rise in quality of life through effective institutional processes and the growth of local and regional income and employment opportunities, without being detrimental to natural resources and social harmony. This blog focuses on the importance of overcoming impediments to development, using technology-based rural communication.

Work 4 Progress (W4P) India aims to create a culture of entrepreneurship in regions of Bundelkhand and Eastern Uttar Pradesh. It adopts a social innovation methodology in which it listens to the community through dialogue, finds answers through co-creation, prototypes solutions and shares learning to eventually create impact at scale. When W4P prototypes start challenging the status quo in communities, they become ‘micro movements’ to accelerate shifts in relationships, resource flows, local processes, attitudes and behaviour. This story is about a micro movement which has led to the emergence of a supply chain which is taking shape through growing peer-to-peer networks. It started with a middle aged woman, setting up an enterprise for the first time and becoming a local aggregator.
