South Asia Food & Nutrition Security Initiative (SAFANSI) 2013-2014 annual report and work program

  • 0

The South Asia Food & Nutrition Security Initiative was established in 2010 to address the South Asian Enigma - how chronic malnutrition remains intractable despite high economic growth - by fostering the crosscutting actions that will lead to measurable improvements in food and nutrition security. Since its formation in 2010, it has financed 53 activities, of which 21 are complete and 32 are under way. Looking back at the portfolio since its inception, one can see a trend. Its team started at the national, and even the international level, undertaking analyses and engaging governments on food and nutrition security issues. The high-level dialogue has yielded results with a Nutrition Action Framework in Afghanistan supported by five key ministries; food and nutrition data and priorities incorporated into Bangladesh's current Five Year Plan; a multi-sector food security and nutrition report produced as a joint effort by multiple organizations. SAFANSI's work at the national level, the community level, its focus on women, and activities in agriculture are reviewed in detail. Tools which have been created for practitioners by the development community and client governments are also highlighted.

To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database The objective of the Sustainable Livelihoods and Adaptation to Climate Change Project for India is to improve adaptive capacity of the rural poor engaged in farm based livelihoods to cope with climate variability and change. The project has 3 components. (1) Planning, service provision and implementation of climate change adaptation component will support risk assessment, planning, service provision and implementation of climate adaptation interventions. The key activities include: (i) community-led risk assessment and participatory planning of climate adaptation interventions; (ii) provision of strategic climate change adaptation services through knowledge assimilation and partnerships with resource institutions; and (iii) implementation of climate adaptation interventions in agriculture by community institutions (self-help groups/federations) utilizing the Community Climate Adaptation (CCA) grants upon approval of a community adaptation plan. (2) Scaling and mainstreaming community-based climate adaptation component will enable support and build capacity for the implementation of climate adaptation interventions, and to develop the strategy for scaling up. Key activities include: (i) capacity building of National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) national and state staff and creation of a cadre of Community Resource Persons (CRPs); (ii) building knowledge support system for climate adaptation including policy inputs for scaling-up of the community-based climate adaptation approach within the NRLM. (3) Project management and impact evaluation component will invest in: (i) establishment of climate adaptation units staffed with full-time professionals within the NRLM and the State Rural Livelihoods Mission (SRLMs) of the participating states; (ii) establishment of a monitoring system and evaluation arrangements (baseline, mid-term and end-of-term); (iii) fiduciary, environmental and social safeguards management.
