The project 'Enhancing Development Impact of Process Tools Piloted in Eastern India', managed by the STREAM Initiative, followed on from two NRSP projects: R6759 (Integration of Aquaculture into the Farming Systems of the Eastern Plateau of India) and R8100 (Investigating Improved Policy on Aquaculture Service Provision to Poor People). It aimed to promote wider uptake of three process tools developed by the previous projects in rural areas in the eastern plateau region of India (in the states of Jharkhand, Orissa and West Bengal). The tools are the entry-point of encouraging and supporting Self-Help Groups (SHG), the Consensus-Building Process (CBP) and Information Access Surveys (IAS).
The project aimed to improve the delivery of aquaculture support services to farmers and fishers by encouraging promotion and uptake of the tools within government and non-government institutions, by STREAM staff and by partners in Asia-Pacific. The expectation was that stakeholders in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam could learn about the process tools from eastern India and develop ways of sharing and using them in their own work.
