Call for Proposals – Rainfed Agriculture: Action Research on Support Systems
The RRA Network invites action research proposals for evolving and pilot testing robust support systems to stimulate inclusive growth in sustainable agriculture, livestock, fisheries and other production systems in rainfed areas.
The proposed pilot initiatives must have a sizeable scale of impact and be embedded into ongoing government programmes such as RKVY, BRGF, IWMP, MGNREGS, NRLM and others. Innovative collaboration with these mainstream programmes to demonstrate a relevant paradigm of rainfed agriculture is desired.
Scale of impact and policy relevance are the important criteria for selection. The field-level pilot will complement the mainstream programme of the partner organisation, by building in action-research and analytical capacity. A budget of not more than Rs 1 crore must accompany each proposal.
Deadline for receiving proposals: 15 October 2011
