lessons on Rural Technology Extensionist (RTE) and sustainability of CBOs.
The assessment followed both quantitative and qualitative methods to see
how the technical, social, economic and institutional factors contributed in
achieving the food and nutritional security of the RFP households. The
integrated and partnership approaches with local PNGOs and introduction of
RTE and CBOs were the important approaches of the project. These were
effective and useful. Improved management practices and use of different
technologies increased intensity and production of rice crop and vegetables,
including significant achievement in livestock and fisheries sector. Access to
credit and savings generation increased remarkably and enhanced the
purchase of agricultural and household assets of RFP households. The
project successfully promoted 12-18 need-based technologies with skilled
RTEs that greatly contributed in generating employment, increasing
production and incomes of the RFP households. 90% of households came
out of poverty and achieved food security for nearly the whole year i.e. 11
months against 6 months of the baseline situation. CBOs performed well in
delivering services during the project implementation period. However,
after project implementation, except for limited savings and credit activity, it
was not able to perform social and rights-based activities, or influence Local
Government Institutions (LGIs) in the interest of community benefits. Some
RTEs (livestock/poultry, aquaculture/fish nursery, agriculture, tree nursery
and grafting) performed very well in attaining technical and input supports
from LGIs that largely contributed to extending services to RFP households
and their economic enhancement. The integrated and partnership approach
of the project were helpful in implementing the project and achieving its goal
through demonstration of technologies and providing services by RTEs.
CBOs/partner NGOs have yet to play a role in accumulation of results of the
project to carry those for sustenance in the long run.
