Annexure referred to in reply to part (c) and (d) of RajyaSabha Unstarred Question No.3548 due for reply on 08.05.2012
Annexure-II

The major findings of the Evaluation Report of Preparatory Phase of2009-10 IWMP projects in Karnataka

  • EPAs have been implemented in all the project areas in all 28 districts. All EPA activities/structures are found to be technically sound and qualitatively good. Check Dams, Gokattas and Farm ponds, etc. in more than 90% of instances have resulted in increasing the ground water  level in the surroundings, catering to cattle  drinking water requirement, occasional usage of irrigation and washing purpose. Increase in the bio-mass and diversity of species in the surroundings is also observed.
  • A special feedback study carried out in selected project areas revealed that on an average more than 60% of impact awareness is observed in case of sensitization & awareness activities.
  • Community participation is mainly channeled through the CBOs formed for the purpose viz. SHGs, UGs & ECs which are formed in the project areas as per the target. All together 4031 SHGs, 3641 UGs & 330 ECs have been formed.
  • Capacity Building of CBOs is carried out mainly through module based training programmes. The participation in training is found very high among SHGs (> 85%). Among the UGs it is satisfactory (> 60%) and among the ECs it is good (> 75%).
  • Net planning is completed in all the project areas. Collective involvement of Watershed Development Team (WDT), NGO staff and community has ensured 100% net plan and DPR preparation for these projects.
  • Livestock sector has made a good beginning and Trainings of Trainers (ToTs) under these sectors are exemplary. Besides, the Animal Health camps conducted under IWMP are found to be very successful. Village Based Training and unique self explanatory charts developed and used by this sector are unique, very innovative and effective in realizing the goals.
  • Notable feature of the project is putting in place an effective MEL&D System. Near real time process monitoring, enabling on line corrective measure, during the project time line is made operational.
