1 Improving the governance of schemes Ramanjaneyulu

2 The Crisis Increasing Costs of Cultivation Trapped in high-risk high-input agriculture Unremunerative Prices; Devaluing of agricultural produce Disparity and neglect of rainfed areas and dryland crops Ecologically unsustainable models Lack of holding capacity among small farmers Processing and marketing not in farmers’ hands Decrease in public investments; skewed subsidies Increasing Living Costs

3 Wrong framework Our models of agriculture and support systems are not based on our situations and needs Green Revolution was technology and productivity centric From 90s we have become technology and market centric Both never cared for the externalities

4 Focus on Farm Incomes & Sustainability Make incomes of small farmers the focus of Agriculture policy; Sustaining small farmers not pushing them out of agriculture Economical and Ecological Sustainability Why? Foundation of Rural economy; Livelihood of 60% of our citizens; Required to ensure nation’s Food Security Production-focused support policy of 1960’s has broken down Growth models in other countries show: unless the model has focus on farm incomes, growth is not poverty-reducing.

8 Suggestions for improvement  Focus on comprehensive, long term sustainable interventions Integrated approach rather than component based approach  Converging with other departments  Comprehensive planning from village consolidating at mandal and district level  Sub-schemes should be well integrated into the larger plan rather being in isolation  Flexibility for decentralised planning, implementing and monitoring  Bring in more transparency and accountability-can introduce social auditing  Strengthening Institutional Mechanism for Implementation and Regular Monitoring  Grievance Redressal Mechanism (GRM) at the District  Equity in selecting beneficiaries-social and regional  Capacity building at various levels  Livelihood centric than technology centric  Focus on building institutions  Innovations from grass root experiences can be scaled up rather than doing more of the same  Improved coordination with implementing agencies  Timely action in preparation of plan, fund release and implementation
