Welcome to Intercooperation India
Intercooperation has been working in India since its inception in 1982. We have worked as a technical and project management agency for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in several states of India over the years specifically working in the areas of natural resource management, livestock and livelihoods and local governance.

In 2006, recognizing the great potential to build upon the vast work experience in India and to work in partnership with other agencies as well, Intercooperation registered itself as an Indian entity. Intercooperation Social Development India (ICSD) was registered as a not for profit company under the Indian Companies Act. The registration no. of the 01-49902 incorporated Under Section 25 on 18th April, 2006.

We have our registered office in Secunderabad in Andhra Pradesh, with office in New Delhi and field offices in Uttarakhand (Haldwani), Goa (Ponda), Maharashtra (Kankavli) and Jaunpur (Uttar Pradesh).

As an implementing partner of SDC, Intercooperation was responsible for supporting several phases of bilateral programmes in major states of India – Rajasthan, Sikkim, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Orissa, Maharashtra and Goa. Apart from managing bilateral programmes, IC has also facilitated the implementation of partnership programmes with over 70 NGOs spread across seven states as well as parastatals, NABARD, NDDB, UN agencies, Central Arid Zone Research Institute, National Dairy Research Institute, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, G.B. Pant University, IWMI, various government departments and institutions.

Intercooperation now works with governments, technical and research organisations, NGOs and Community Based Organisations (CBOs) on initiatives in Rural Livelihoods, Climate Change and Local Governance.

In Livelihoods our focus is on livestock and dairy as well as organic fair-trade based value chain development leading to sustainable agriculture and poverty reduction. The climate change team works on adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk reduction.

Local Governance team works on local governance, social accountability, participatory planning and water and natural resources and governance.
