The ideology of PLF is derived from diverse experience of a cross-section of professionals, who have lead and contributed to several creative projects in the country. The core team of Professionals associated with the Foundation has not only brought with it the institutional learning of Andhra Pradesh Rural Livelihoods Programme, but also assimilated experience from their association with other development projects in India.
The Government of Andhra Pradesh in the late nineties had created a Programme Support Unit (PSU) for facilitating the implementation of APRLP. PSU has brought about changes in the design, practice and policies in watershed movement in AP by linking Natural Resource Development with poverty reduction strategies.
When the work of PSU was reviewed, it was found that it had facilitated change management in on-going programme as well as generating learning materials on future policy. In this context, a need was felt for creating a separate institute within the government to facilitate learning in policy formulation, practice and renewal. This was seriously pursued by the core members with in PSU and as a result PLF was established in 2004 as an autonomous institutions.

In realization of PLFs mission, research plays as vital a role as training. The expectations from research efforts are two-fold: to help improve the management of rural development projects; and to augment the existing body of knowledge on the process of rural management.
As a result, from the beginning, PLF’s research programme has evolved two discernible streams.
One leads to mainstream research where focus is on understanding the operational problems faced by rural organizations in order to help evolve feasible solutions. A great deal on such research is in the form of case research and consultancy projects.    
The other leads to research on wider issues of socio-economic upliftment of the rural people, especially the rural poor, and the analysis of various interventions being made to bring about such upliftment.

Policy And Practice

As the name of the institute vouches for, PLF has been trying to learn and facilitate change in social and economic spheres. Problems develop differently in different historical, institutional and location-specific context. Almost inevitably, there is an implementation gap between the stated objectives and outcomes of
the development practice and policy. It is vital to be vigilant in designing practices and maintaining critical awareness of the exclusions perpetuated, the policy frameworks of international institutions and our governments.
PLF is planning to establish field-posts for involving people in defining policy priorities and thereby inform policy; and facilitate action-research to analyze and develop critique from the perspective of those living in poverty. PLF will apply the outcomes from the above process for the benefit of local, state and national policy making.     
PLF also pursues interaction between Government, private sector, the media and civil society to influence public policies and their actions

The PLF has continually endeavoured to provide tools in making development-process more effective and simple. The Poverty Monitoring Tool was developed as a much needed tool to track poverty reduction as integral part of project management.  The tool is useful for carrying out concurrent monitoring as well as impact assessment poor.    
It leads to better planning, sharpening interventions and making necessary adjustments in on-going programmes to improve the outreach by tracking the most vulnerable.  Similarly, PLF has been associating with ISEC and IWMI in developing approaches, tools and practices for learning and deepening the poverty focus of development programmes.
PLF is currently working on poverty mapping, governance, and local institutions and decentralization; and developing a system of planning, monitoring, evaluation and transference into action (PMET) that facilitates poverty agenda in development programmes.

PLF is primarily involved in promoting learning process in order to refine and redefine poverty reduction strategies and methods in the changing context of economic globalisation.

Action-research on state of livelihoods in Andhra Pradesh in collaboration with APMAS to inform institutions involved in livelihood promotion on their future priorities; and
Action-research on state of livelihoods in Andhra Pradesh in collaboration with APMAS to inform institutions involved in livelihood promotion on their future priorities; and    
Policy imperatives in watershed programmes and experiences in India – informing policy makers through documentation and deliberations. To this end, PLF has promoted a network consisting of WOTR, WASSAN and MANAGE. The network members for over a year have assimilated learning through documentation of experiences in DANIDA watersheds, working groups to discuss on other experiences, and workshops. In the process it has placed before the national commission on watershed policy the thinking on future priorities in the areas of equity, capacity-building, monitoring and evaluation and sustainability.
