Assam is the most severe flood and erosion affected area in India, accounting for 9.4% of the total flood-prone area of the country. In Assam, damage due to floods has been caused by two rivers systems - the Brahmaputra and the Barak. 

The project 'Livelihood Improvement for River Erosion Victims in Assam - Micro Enterprise Promotion for Youth in Dibrugarh' focuses on employable skill training and entrepreneurship promotion for distinctly different economically & socially backward target groups of youths living on the riverside of the embankment in Dibrugarh; relatively less educated daily wage laborers. A total of 250 youths will be part of this project of which 50% will be female. 

The Aide et Action develops skill training programmes based on Entrepreneurship and Employability Potential Assessment results. This is followed by identification of youths; formation of peer groups and providing training.
