Title: MITIGATING POVERTY IN WESTERN RAJASTHAN


1
MITIGATING POVERTY IN WESTERN RAJASTHAN
  • MPOWER, JODHPUR

2
Need and Justification
  • To achieve the goal of inclusive growth,
    efforts for poverty mitigation need to be scaled
    up.
  • Strategies for direct attack on poverty have
    proved to be more effective in poverty reduction
    (Trickle down effect of growth does not happen
    automatically).
  • Poverty in Tribal and Desert areas is not only
    high but entrenched more in certain pockets
    requiring saturation approach.

Project Objectives
  • The overall goal of the Project is to improve
    the quality of life of the poor and create
    sustainable livelihood opportunities for
    vulnerable and marginalized groups in the project
    area.
  • The specific objectives are
  • (i) Drought mitigation and water
    securitization
  • (ii) Income enhancement and employment
  • generation
  • (iii) Market led productivity improvements
  • (iv) Favorable market access in terms of
  • realizing better producer prices (farm
    gate
  • prices) and backward forward linkages
  • (v) Empowerment and mainstreaming of women,the
    marginalized and vulnerable groups and
  • (vi) Leveraging substantial govt. funds through
    convergence and dovetailing.

5
Project Rationale
  • The project region is beset with a harsh arid
    climate with low erratic variable rainfall
    drought is a recurrent phenomenon across the
    region at least once every three years. The core
    problems faced are severe water insecurity, poor
    agricultural, livestock and IGA productivity, low
    investable surpluses and a social system that
    greatly discriminates against women and the
    socially disadvantaged.

6
Project Components
  • (I) Strengthening of Grassroots Institutions,
    divided in 2 sub-components
  • (i) Mobilisation and Capacity Building
  • (ii) Community Infrastructure Development Fund
    (CIDF).
  • (II) Livelihoods Support, divided in 2
    sub-components
  • (i) Income Generating, Marketing and
  • Employment Creation and
  • (ii) Development Finance
  • (III) Project Management

7
Core Approach
  • The core approach of CIDF component, in
    particular, is convergence. All applicable and
    relevant on-going schemes of the Government are
    to be dovetailed and implemented in this project.
    Given that allocated resources are very limited
    in comparison with what Government will provide
    for infrastructure development (land and water
    resources development, afforestation, etc), the
    project funding will be for , gap filling and
    complementary financing. Where gaps or slippages
    that would compromise the quality, impact or
    targeting in regard to beneficiaries occur,
    Project funds will complement the effort.

8
Target Group.
  • The target group consists of all BPL households
    in the project area, as determined by the GOR
    (100 saturation is the goal).

9
Innovative Features
  • (i) It attempt to make markets work for the
    poor by securing better
  • access and better producer prices
  • (ii) It seeks to let markets signal and
    provide the incentives for people to adopt new
    technologies and better management regimes
  • (iii) By growing SHGs into Marketing Groups
    and making them into micro entrepreneurs, the
    project transforms a mechanism of social
    empowerment into one for economic empowerment
  • (iv) It seeks to make equity a concern of the
    village elite also (not only that of the project)
  • (v) It uses project resources to provide the
    incentives as well as the follow up to leverage
    govt. funds through dovetailing and convergence
    of govt. schemes, especially NREGA.funds. This
    results in substantial augmentation of project
    resources.
