Basic Information about the initiative
The origin of the SMPUP network came from the learning of CADMB (Collective Action for Drought Mitigation in Bolangir), a network initiative by ActionAid, after 7 years of working on the issue of drought and migration in Bolangir district. After the issue was adequately highlighted and recognized by state Government, it was realized that drought and migration is not just the issue of Bolangir but of other parts of Western Odisha including adjacent Baragarh district, specifically Padampur sub-division. Hence to make the issue broader and include more people to this cause, SMPUP got conceptualized for similar intervention in Padmapur sub division in 2004. It became the LRP in 2007. Samuhik Marudi Pratikar Udyam, Padmapur (SMPUP) is a network of 3 NGOs and 4 CBOs coming together to fight for the rights of poor and marginalized people in Padmapur sub-division of Bargarh district in Odisha. The network has been working in the area in addressing the problems of people in 4 blocks namely Padampur, Paikmal, Gaisilet and Jharbandh of Padampur sub-division. The network is closely working with Adivasi/Dalits/OBC category.
