Presentation Transcript

  1. Welcome Fisheries Programme Cereal Systems Initiative for Bangladesh (CSISA –BD) Project , Khulna Hub, Funded by USAID May 22, 2012, Khulna Presented in AAS Hub Scoping at Khulna

  2. Objectives Overall objective is to “increase income, food security, and livelihoods in impoverished and agriculturally dependent regions of Bangladesh”

  3. Specific Objectives Objective -1 Widespread delivery, and adoption of improved varieties & technologies in cereal and fish systems for production enhancement and income generation. Objective -2: Conduct context specific adaptive researches for validation and refinement of technologies in cereal and aquaculture systems Objective 3: Capacity building of stakeholders for technology dissemination and adoption Objective-4: Socio-economic and farming system analysis for improvement of market linkage and livelihood systems for agricultural growth and sustainable poverty reduction. Objective-5: Developing of user friendly knowledge and information delivery systems for the agricultural stakeholders.

  4. Vision of success Direct project participants 60,000 ( Khulna hub -6000 aquaculture beneficiaries). Annual HH income increases by 350 dollars through income from crop & fish productivity. Secondary adopters 300,000 (through demonstrations, field days, training etc). Ultimate aggregate benefit will over 1 million rural HH through linkages & synergies with GO-NGO-Private sectors, other national / international projects.

  5. Fisheries Programme at Khulna Hub

  6. Working Districts & Upazilas at Khulna Hub Bangladesh Map Khulna Hub • Khulna district • Dumuria • Botiaghata • Rupsha • Fultala • 2. Satkhira district • Debhata • Shyamnagar • Kaligonj • SatkhiraSadar • Kalaroa • 3. Bagerhat district • Chitalmari • Rampal • Fakirhat Total: 12 Upazilas

  7. Agro ecological characters of Khulna region • Soil type: • General pattern of grey, slightly calcareous loamy soils on river banks and grey or dark grey, noncalcareous, heavy siltycalys in the basin. • Extremely acid soil (acid sulfate soils) occur patchily in basin.

  8. Fisheries Potentials in Khulna Hub Total cultivable area: 344,940 hac. Fisheries resources: 227,439 hac ( 65 % of cultivable land)

  9. “Gher aquaculture” has been emerging as the dominant farming systems in this region (above 50% of total cultivable land are used as Gher aquaculture, and increasing by 10 % every year) • Brackish water shrimp ( Tiger shrimp) culture ( Aman - Shrimp ) Gher farming Gher • Freshwater shrimp ( Prawn) culture (Boro-Prawn + Vege )

  10. Planned Fisheries Activities till date

  11. Technology dissemination

  12. Reaching the farmers (Capacity development of farmers) • Skill training: • Small group formation. • Training need assessment. • 2 days (4 hrs each days) skill training at field level. • 1 day (4 hrs) refresher training course at field level. • Resource persons hired from: • DoF, DAE • Development project’s staffs • Other aquaculture practitioners Farmer’s training at Dumuria

  13. Reaching the farmers • 2. Establish Farmer Driven Participatory Demonstration plots on introducing improved technologies at community level. • To develop “Lead Farmers” to be acted as local extension agent. • To show the methods and results of applied technologies to community farmers.

  14. Reaching the farmers 3. Organize Field days: • Method demonstration on introduced technologies • Result demonstration on introduced technologies. • Target participants -Direct & indirect farmers, entrepreneurs, local elites, GO-NGO & Private sectors practitioners. Field day at Shyamnager 4. Organize Exposure visit: Advance farmers, PNGO extension workers, project staffs are the target participants.

  15. Reaching the farmers 5. Conduct context specific adaptive trial for varieties, technologies 9 women involved with cage aquaculture at BotiaghataUpazila Average production obtained: 27 kg/ mᵌ/ cycle ( 3 ½ months)

  16. Reaching the farmers 8. Household nutritional propagation • Orange Flesh Sweet Potato (OFSP) vines distributed to • 125 families • Summer tomato cultivation.

  17. Reaching the farmers • 6. Capacity development of the partner organizations for delivering extension services to farmers. • - MOU development • Extension staff training • Meeting / Workshop • Reporting • 7. Linkages / Collaboration with GO-NGO- Private sector line agencies for resources mobilization, experience sharing, policy reformation etc. • MOU development ( GAZI Fish Culture Ltd., Spectra Hexa Feed Co Ltd ( MEGA Feed) • Organize workshop • Media publication • Individual contact • Training materials development & distribution. .

  18. Partnership to date National & local NGOs BRAC, TMSS, UTTARAN & Renaissance. • Organizing the farmers at community level. • Baseline survey • Sharing of resources / equipments. • Establishing the demonstration plots. • Day to day monitoring the target farmers. • Information delivery. • Developing extension agents at community level. • Ensuring/ distribute quality inputs to the farmers. • Networking with GO-NGO- Private sectors . Private sectors Gazi Fish Culture Ltd., Quality Scientific Fish Hatcheries & Nurseries, Milemara Depot and one CBO. Role / Responsibilities of partners

  19. Results / Outcomes • Farmers have been adopting improved technologies ( feeding, liming, PCR tested PL , nursery development etc. • Demand of quality inputs has increased. Fig-1 Production in kg/ha Fig-2 Cost & Return Tk/ ha

  20. Progress till to date

  21. Lessons Learnt 1. Huge number of farmers are remained behind from any extension services (lack of improved knowledge, technological information, skills etc) 2. Need long term / consistent extension supports to the farmers for adopting improved technologies by the farmers. 3. Farmer Driven Participatory Technology Dissemination / adaptive trial activities need to be strengthened for technology dissemination / adoption rather than traditional farmers training. 4. Diverse and traditional culture practices by the farmers results poor yield per unit area. 5. There is demand for quality inputs ( PCR tested quality PL). 6. Linkage between Value Chain actors & producers need to be strengthened for sustainable aquaculture.

  22. Challenges and Constraints • Selection of right project participants. • Ensuring quality inputs to farmers in right time. • Integrated extension supports to farming people. • Mobilizing the resources/ services of GO-NGO-Private sectors. • Adoption of improved technologies by the farmers. • To increase cropping intensities and Risk reducing technologies for farming system. • Aquaculture ( especially Prawn/ Shrimp farming ) is a capital intensive enterprise and need proper management for optimal production. • Disease infection especially viral disease outbreak in shrimp farming. • Natural hazards like draught has been affecting seriously. • Scarcity and high price of quality inputs ( PL, feed etc). • Weak market linkages for real prices of produce. • Limited extension service at field level need more work force even in a single cluster . • Participation of partner organization for wider dissemination.
