This plan concerns the participation of and benefit for women and disadvantaged groups (DAGs). Disadvantaged groups are defined in this project as Dalits, Indigenous People in general and the marginalized and highly marginalized Indigenous People in particular, remote communities, and marginal households without land or access to irrigation. Women are considered to be included when referring to disadvantaged groups in general, but will be mentioned separately where different from other disadvantaged categories.

The plan is based on the Poverty and Social Assessment (PSA), the Gender Assessment, and the Indigenous Peoples Framework. The plan merges the strategy elements put forth in those documents in to one plan.
