Development orgns have to play proactive role: symposium

Written by: Staff

Bhopal, Sep 12 (UNI) Development organisations have to play a proactive role in the present circumstances to imbibe elements of business culture in their programmatic intervention, a symposium focussing on 'Role of Civil Society Organisations in the Changing Rural Agri-economy' has concluded.

The presentations argued that production-led intervention, though important, has limited success and relatively restricted impact on the most vulnerable community. Re-engineering the value chain and supply chain may address some of the critical issues and make small holders' farming a profitable venture, a release said here today.

Madhya Pradesh District Poverty Initiative Project Coordinator Ravindra Pastor, who chaired the session, stressed upon a market-led approach to agri development.

The September 9 event was to mark the tenth anniversary of the NGO Action for Social Advancement (ASA) committed for livelihood improvement of the rural community through promotion and facilitation of participatory natural resources development and management.

ASA has its outreach in about 800 villages of six districts directly and several hundred more villages of Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand with its partners. It is associated in implementing both government and non-government-assisted projects in watershed and water resources development, participatory irrigation management, agri research and extension, microfinance, support to panchayati raj institutions, research, training and consultancy, the release added.
