Fuelling Employment Generation through Cluster Development
Handloom, Handicraft and Natural resources

Jammu & Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI),Government of J&K in collaboration with us has commenced integrated cluster development programs for 10 traditional craft clusters in Srinagar. These clusters are being developed in an integrated manner coupled with tourism and also to enhance the market access for artisans and impact the overall economy of the region

As the Cluster Development Agency (CDA), we aim to enable holistic development of the identified clusters in Srinagar by providing turnkey and comprehensive services from concept to commissioning for development of clusters. The mandate includes project development by conducing need assessment studies, sensitising the cluster stakeholders on the cluster based approach and building their capacity to ensure their participation in the identified interventions, designing and structuring of technically feasible and viable common facility projects in the clusters and designing of suitable implementation framework and institutional mechanisms for implementation of projects

Assistance in project financing and implementation including facilitating linkages, capacity building and engineering and design services for infrastructure projects is also an integral component of our engagement
