Institute of Rural Research and Development (IRRAD) is an initiative of the S.M. Sehgal Foundation dedicated to creating a brighter future for India’s rural communities. We envision rural people across India motivated and empowered to make their lives more secure and prosperous. IRRAD designs, tests and replicates scalable community-based models for rural development in the areas of water management, agriculture, sanitation, governance and education. It also builds capacities of communities and community-based institutions to enable them to undertake their own development. These initiatives are transformed into action through IRRAD’s four centers: Natural Resource Management, Policy, Governance & Advocacy Capacity Building, and Rural Research Center. Most of IRRAD’s field work is focused in 206 villages of Mewat (Haryana), one of the most backward regions in India.
