Support to Urban Street Vendors

Street vendors constitute an important segment at the bottom of the pyramid of the informal economy in cities. Street vending provides a source of self-employment, and acts as a measure of urban poverty alleviation. Street vending also has a prominent place in the urban supply chain, and provides inexpensive and convenient access to goods and services to all segments of the population including the poor. Street vending is therefore an integral part of the economic growth process in urban areas.

Objective of SUSV is to address the vulnerabilities of the urban street vendors through a multi-pronged approach. Wayanad, as an initiative is planning to give a unique code in dress and shop for Mananthavady street vendors which give them a sense of identity and unity.
