Development of entrepreneurial capabilities and facilitating the initiation of productive and gainful ventures through EDPs, integrated with other essential support, have made positive impacts on enterprise development in many underdeveloped regions, particularly the hill and mountainous areas in India.The present study analyses some successful (and a few not so successful) training interventions for promotion of small and micro-enterprises in the Himalayan region of India and assesses the scope for their explicability elsewhere. The study finds that EDPs following the EDI approach have as much chance of succeeding in hill regions as elsewhere, but the Group Entrepreneurship Development approach is found to have much better potential in terms of sustaining successful entrepreneurial activities in these regions.
