POST PROJECTSUSTAINABILITYSTUDY OF SETU (SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION OFTHE ULTRA POOR)

POST PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY STUDY OF SETU09CARE Bangladesh implemented (2009-2015) Social and Economic Transformation of the Ultra Poor (SETU), under the EEP/SHiREE program funded by former UKaid from the Department for International and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation in four districts: Ranpur, Gaibandha, Lalmonirhat and Nilphamari of the Northwest region of the country that is severely affected by seasonal food insecurity. The design of SETU was structured around CARE's Criteria and threshold of calculating multidimensional poverty livelihood opportunities; social inequalities playing out different forms of exploitation, dependence, discrimination, and marginalization; and weak governance at all levels resulting in lack of participation of extreme poor and poor people in Union Parishad and local development processes.This PPS study of SETU aims to assess how and to what extent the graduation model sustains in later years; and the factors that determine sustainability or lack thereof in the same population group. The study followed the same area and sample (418) households of SETU’s end evaluation study and included 95% of households who graduated and 5% of HH who have not graduated. Read More...

Sustainability of impact-strengthening the Dairy value Chain (SDVC) Final Report

Strengthening Dairy Value Chain (SDVC) Project was one of the first Value Chain Development (VCD) programmes of CARE Bangladesh, it had its roots in focusing extensively in supporting farmers through provision of organizing, training and technically supporting farmers. SDVC-II had a more market led focus and a more facilitative approach. It worked across the dairy value chain, ranging from Livestock Health Workers (LHWs), Input sellers, Milk Collectors, BRAC Dairy, and others. This study aimed to measure long-term sustainability of impacts through Market Systems Development Approach. The study focused on capturing the sustainability of the project’s interventions, 5 years after the project had closed.
SDVC built household resilience, improved livelihoods, and helped chronically food insecure households increase their income and dairy consumption. The project focused on implementing change through a set of interventions namely:
• Improving Productivity
• Increasing Access to Inputs
• Increasing Access to Markets
• Improving the Policy Environment
• Supporting Use of Technology and Data
The study adopted the AAER (Adopt, Adapt, Expand, Respond) framework1 for capturing systemic change. The study found that after five years of project completion, substantial linkages remain, and functions continues to serve the poor in a systematic manner. Where we found that market actors such as Livestock Health Workers, Retailers, Collection points continue to function strongly. Similarly, we found that BRAC dairy continues to source milk from collection points, where smallholders supply roughly 70-80% of the milk. Other processors were also found to utilise the collection points in terms of sourcing milk. BRAC intends to replicate the dairy hub model with the use of Digital Fat Testing Devices in the southern part of Bangladesh as well. All processors like PRAN, Milk Vita, Rangpur Dairy were also found to have been sourcing from the established collection points.

EVALUATION FINALE DU PROJET « RENFORCEMENT DE LA RESILIENCE DES PASTEURS ET AGRO-PASTEURS POUR UNE SECURITE ALIMENTAIRE NUTRITIONNELLE DURABLE FACE AUX EFFETS DU CHANGEMENT CLIMATIQUE DANS LA PROVINCE DE BILTINE DANS WADI FIRA».

Le Tchad, de par sa situation géographique est devenu un lieu de refuge pour des milliers de réfugiés des Etats frontaliers (RCA, Libye Nigeria et Soudanais). De plus, en raison des conditions climatiques difficiles, de nombreuses régions du Tchad, parmi lesquelles celle de Wadi Fira, se retrouve confrontéé à des défis sociodémographiques et économiques. Il en résulte de cette situation des crises alimentaires récurrentes, une pression démographique, un accès très limité aux besoins de première nécessité de tous les groupes de populations, un manque de circulation de devise, une pression énorme sur les ressources naturelles, un accès limité aux surfaces arables cultivables, une réduction du niveau de production et d’auto-approvisionnement des populations, un espace de pâturage limité, etc. Face à cette problématique d’actualité, les impacts du changement climatique se font sentir dans l’agriculture, l’élevage, la santé, l’habitat et d’autres domaines quotidiennement. Les terres sont souvent sujettes à des effets ou impacts néfastes des changements climatiques comme la sécheresse, l’’inondation, l’érosion, les grands vents, la pauvreté, la chaleur atroce, la rareté des pluies, les pluies parfois abondantes, les conflits auxquels s’ajoutent l’insécurité.
C’est pourquoi, CARE International, à travers ses trois piliers programmatiques, a à son portefeuille plusieurs projets parmi lesquels le projet « Renforcement de la résilience des pasteurs et agro-pasteurs pour une sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle durable face aux effets du changement climatique dans la province de Biltine dans Wadi Fira ». En effet, il convient de noter que ce projet vise à contribuer à une amélioration durable des conditions de vie vulnérables de cette partie de la population en besoin d’assistance dans cette partie du Tchad. Il importe de préciser que ce projet a pris en compte la sécurité alimentaire, la nutrition, la santé, le genre, la consolidation de la paix et le WASH grâce à l’appui financier du Gouvernement Allemand.
