An Innovative, Scalable, Pro-poor Home Cooking-based Charcoal Production Value Chain For Women

septiembre 2015
With a small grant, INBAR has innovated Household Charcoal (HHC) production from cooking with firewood into a new livelihood opportunity and sustainable value chain for the economic empowerment of poor rural women. Women from poor rural households in Ethiopia, India and Tanzania were trained to put out fires when they had finished cooking to prevent smouldering, collect household charcoal through the clusters and process it into briquettes. INBAR has also developed the NCPP Social Enterprise Model which is an Innovative & Inclusive Institutional system to strengthen the rural development ecosystem and enable safe investment opportunities for rural women.

Enabling Land Management, Resilient Pastoral Livelihoods and Poverty Reduction in Africa

marzo 2015
The World Initiative for Sustainable Pastoralism (WISP) is a global knowledge and advocacy network that promotes understanding of sustainable pastoral development for both poverty reduction and sustainable environmental management. WISP was executed by the International Union for Nature Conservation (IUCN). The Programme built the capacity of pastoral institutions to engage in advocacy based on state-of-the-art global learning on sustainable pastoralism, enabling pastoralist institutions around the world to network and shared experiences and opportunities, and ensured that the voice of pastoralists remained central to policy discourse and learning.

Insights and lessons learned from the reflections on the PIALA piloting in Vietnam

noviembre 2014
Under the 9th Replenishment, IFAD committed to moving 80 million rural people out of poverty cumulative from 2010 onwards to 2015, and conducting 30 rigorous impact assessments. Hence the urgent need for appropriate methodologies for impact assessment. To respond to this need, a few piloting initiatives have been launched, one of which is the Improved Learning Initiative (ILI) 2. This initiative aims to develop a potentially scalable Participatory Impact Assessment and Learning Approach (PIALA) that can help IFAD and its partners collaboratively assess, explain and debate its contributions to rural poverty impact. The PIALA design and piloting is funded by IFAD’s DFID-financed Innovation Mainstreaming Initiative (IMI) and BMGF’s Measurement, Learning and Evaluation Unit in the Agricultural Development Program; and with important contributions from IFAD’s Country Program Offices and partners in the pilot countries (Vietnam and Ghana), and its Strategy & Knowledge Management and Program Management Departments.

Performance of IPAF small projects: Desk review 2011

noviembre 2011
In June 2006, the World Bank and IFAD agreed to transfer the World Bank’s Grants Facility for Indigenous Peoples to IFAD. In September, the transfer was approved by IFAD’s Executive Board. This marked the beginning of the IFAD Indigenous Peoples Assistance Facility (IPAF), which issues public calls for proposals and makes small grants to support indigenous and tribal peoples throughout the world. Development projects financed through IPAF aim to improve indigenous peoples’ access to key decision-making processes, empower indigenous peoples to find solutions to the challenges they face, and respond to indigenous peoples’ holistic perspectives. The projects build on indigenous culture, identity, knowledge, natural resources, intellectual property and human rights. This report, prepared by an independent consultant, provides an overview of the performance of 53 small IPAF-funded projects in delivering results and improving the lives of their target groups. About 45,000 people directly benefited from these projects, and more than half of them were women. Project services reached about 1,200 communities. Primary project activities were training and individual capacity-building in such topics as security of tenure, natural resource management, agricultural technologies, traditional medicine, indigenous peoples’ rights, community programming, literacy and HIV/AIDS prevention.

Rural Poverty Report 2011

noviembre 2010
“Hoy en día el problema es que no importa lo duro que trabajes, nunca es suficiente para alimentar a la familia…”. “Lleva sin llover aproximadamente un año, quizás más. Por eso la gente sufre…”. “Sin estudios una persona no puede hacer nada…”. “Los hombres se han ido a trabajar fuera del pueblo. La principal mano de obra aquí son las mujeres…”. Lo anterior son testimonios de primera mano de algunos de los hombres, mujeres y jóvenes que fueron entrevistados para este informe. Sus historias nos ofrecen una percepción profunda de lo que es vivir la realidad en constante cambio de la pobreza rural en nuestro tiempo. Si queremos comprender esa realidad, es fundamental escuchar sus experiencias y aprender de ellas. Y es el primer paso en la búsqueda de soluciones adecuadas y eficaces para conseguir que las zonas rurales pasen de estar estancadas a ser lugares donde los jóvenes de hoy puedan encontrar oportunidades de trabajo que les permitan salir de la pobreza, y donde deseen vivir y criar a sus propios hijos. Necesitamos comprender claramente qué rostro tiene la pobreza hoy en día, disponer de una cesta de soluciones prácticas a los múltiples retos a los que nos enfrentamos y contar con un enfoque coherente para hacer frente a los desafíos que se puedan ir presentando en el futuro. En este informe se presentan estos tres aspectos. La publicación del FIDA Informe sobre la pobreza rural 2011 – Nuevas realidades, nuevos desafíos: nuevas oportunidades para la generación del mañana, es un estudio exhaustivo de la pobreza rural. Las conclusiones del informe se derivan de la colaboración entre docenas de expertos en la esfera de la reducción de la pobreza, tanto dentro como fuera del FIDA, algunos de ellos también procedentes de la propia población rural pobre.
