Empowering to hear @nikhilmkss talk about 'new deal' needed to cater to inc. demand for jobs through #MGNREGA and idea of "MGNREGA +" which will include features of MGNREGA and Disaster Mgmt Employment Guarantee Pgm aimed at employment generation & post disaster rehabilitation.
Very thoughtful idea by @nikhilmkss of expanding #MGNREGA into services and how #Panchayats can leverage #labour force during disasters for last mile delivery such as the mass health services requirements we are currently facing during #Covid_19 crisis.
Nikhil Dey: The most under-researched aspect of #MGNREGA is that of nurturing the #environment. MGNREGA is a "natural" women's program and environmental program.

Named after #MahatmaGandhi, the #MGNREGA, one of the largest #publicworks programme in the world, came about because of inadequate govt schemes that weren't meeting the demand for #rural #employment.โ€ฆ Image
Recognizing there was persistent #unemployment in rural areas โ€“ and no #SocialSecurity mechanism for the #poor, the #MGNREGA aims to provide #wage #employment to poor #rural households, strengthen rural #livelihoods, and ensure #socialinclusion. #GandhiAt150
The Act guarantees that state govts will set up schemes to provide no less than 100 days of #employment in one financial year to every rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual #work.
