Integrated Basin Development And Livelihood Promotion Programme

IBDLP, the flagship livelihood programme of the Government of Meghalaya aims to put the state on a higher growth trajectory and improve the quality of life of all its citizens. It seeks to redefine the relationship between the citizen and state. IBDLP has brought a paradigm shift in the way development is viewed and administered by moving from the current supply driven beneficiary model of development to a demand driven partnership model of development. The focus will be on ushering in a culture of entrepreneurship in the state by encouraging citizens to see themselves as entrepreneurs, and to create the right eco-systems for entrepreneurship to flourish.
