Goa Livelihoods Forum is a nonprofit think tank dedicated to the all-round development of Goa, with a strategic focus on Livelihoods, in consonance with the State’s priorities. GLF has been nurtured by FIDR with support from diverse stakeholders of Goa. The Forum includes community representatives, sector experts, professionals, corporates, entrepreneurs and all willing contributors to and volunteers for the socio-economic well being of the state.
