  • Cluster Facilitation Team (CFT) for Effective implementation of MGNREGA and NRLM

     

    Unnati is implementing CFT project in Balesar block of Jodhpur district of Rajasthan since January 2015. This is the second year of our engagement. Some information about the project and outcome of engagement during last year is provided.

    The project is one of the strategies to synergise the functioning of two flagship programmes - MGNREGA and NRLM, both addressing the issues of rural unemployment and poverty from different facets. The provision for this strategy was made in the Operational Guidelines of MGNREGA, 2013. The project seeks to enhance rural livelihoods through creation of sustainable assets in MGNREGS. SHGs and Voluntary Organisations (VOs) promoted through NRLM are the vehicles of community participation. It is expected that these organisations of the poor will be able to work in partnership with the gram panchayats and demand their accountability to ensure the entitlements of the vulnerable people. CSOs manage the CFTs and play a facilitation and capacity building role. They mobilize the community for participation in planning and accountability functions for improving the quality of assets and energise the delivery system.

    The project is piloted in 250 backward blocks of the country. Its components are: (i) Creation of awareness and demand generation, (ii) Planning works for sustainable livelihoods, (iii) Timely payment of wages to MGNREGA workers, and (v) Capacity building and training of all stakeholders. CFT project is being implemented in 15 selected blocks of 15 districts in Rajasthan as a partnership between Rural Development Department, Government of Rajasthan, Rajasthan Gramin Aajivika Vikas Parishad (RGAVP) and different CSOs. Unnati is responsible for Balesar block of Jodhpur district. There are 26 gram panchayats and 111 revenue villages in the block. A team of 9 community facilitators is coordinated by a Programme Officer.

    During the one year of implementation of the project, there have been improvements in the number of labour days, labour budget utilization, on-time payments, on-going works, individual and common assets created. Data on some of the parameters are given below :

    Socio-economic baseline assessment study under the GIZ supported project ‘Conservation and Sustainable Management of Existing and Potential Coastal and Marine Protected Areas’
    (Oct, 2015 - Apr, 2016)

     

    UNNATI is conducting a socio-economic baseline assessment in 12 villages located around two wetlands viz. Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary, Jamnagar and Gosabara Wetland, Porbandar to develop an understanding of the eco systems, the biodiversity, communities living in and around the project areas, their interdependence on these ecosystems and perceptions about the use of resources and existing and potential livelihoods. This understanding shall be used to develop frameworks and plans for conservation and sustainable management of existing and potential coastal and marine protected areas. This study is a part of a larger project for which the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) and GIZ India have entered into collaboration for implementation of the project ‘Conservation and Sustainable Management of Existing and Potential Coastal and Marine Protected Areas’ (CMPA) in four states, including Gujarat. The study is being carried out by UNNATI with GIZ support.

    Participatory methodology will be used to conduct the baseline so as to engage the communities and other stakeholders in assuming an active role in analysing their own living conditions, problems and potentials for desired change of their situation. Any changes for improved wetland conservation and management require collective action and through involving the local communities, the potential of their assuming responsibilities for implementing some activities will increase.

    Capacity Building of PRIs on Promotion of Women and Children Rights and Development in Gujarat (Training Modules and Materials for District Resource Persons for Training of PRIs)
    (July, 2015 - Mar, 2016)

     

    A set of seven training modules and materials for enhancing the capacity of PRIs on promotion of rights of children and effective implementation of public programs especially those designed for them is being prepared with support of UNICEF, Gujarat. The Gram Panchayats need to have a clear understanding and skill to implement appropriate rights based framework, social justice laws and programs/schemes for children. To build the capacity of PRIs for effective implementation of program and schemes related to children, capacity of trainers at the district level in Gujarat will be developed to provide support to them.

    The training modules will focus on use of participatory learning process, building on the learning of the participants and helping them to explore their reality using their own experiences. The proposed methodology shall be experience based, open-ended and group centered so as to help participants improve and strengthen their work. Trainers will be equipped with the required information on children’s issues and equipped to use participatory training methods on the set of contents identified to build the capacities of PRI representatives. The Training of Trainers will be organised by State Institute of Rural Development, Gujarat.
