Introduction to the NBDC Baseline Study November 2010–February 2011: Purpose, key questions and components

  1. 1. Introduction to the Baseline Study November 2010 – February 2011 Purpose, key questions and components Prepared by Eva Ludi (ODI) for the CPWF Training Workshop, 8-12 November 2010
  2. 2. Purpose of the baseline <ul><li>This baseline study relates to Changes 1, 2 and 3 of the project : </li></ul><ul><li>1: Wereda, Regional, and/or NGO planners active in study site landscapes are using more effective tools for planning for RMS at landscape scale: (1) Evidence-based (2) Tailored to different social and ecological niches (3) Cross-sectoral (4) Participatory </li></ul><ul><li>2: Those implementing water resource and other agricultural development plans (Wereda and NGO staff) are more effectively implementing RWM plans . </li></ul><ul><li>3: Increased collective action and institutions for uptake of RMS at farm and community levels , and these supported by Wereda, DAs and NGO actors </li></ul>
  3. 3. Purpose of the baseline <ul><li>The baseline aims to do three things: </li></ul><ul><li>Provide a baseline for monitoring progress on the 3 changes, i.e. a snapshot of the current situation in the study sites in terms of planning, implementation and innovation of RWM . </li></ul><ul><li>Identify actors to involve in woreda learning platforms </li></ul><ul><li>Scope out key issues, barriers and opportunities to improve planning, implementation and innovation in RWM, to inform the next phase of in-depth action research. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Key questions - Planning <ul><li>Who is involved in planning rainwater management (which sectors, which levels, government and non-government)? </li></ul><ul><li>How is planning coordinated among these actors? </li></ul><ul><li>What tools and approaches are currently used for planning? </li></ul><ul><li>How are decisions made about rainwater management, e.g. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Which technologies and land management practices to implement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Where to site interventions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to share costs and benefits </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What say do farmers have? </li></ul><ul><li>Are upstream/downstream linkages considered in planning? </li></ul><ul><li>What barriers prevent more effective planning? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Key questions - Implementation <ul><li>Who is responsible for implementing rainwater management at different levels? </li></ul><ul><li>How do different actors coordinate their implementation? </li></ul><ul><li>What level of knowledge and understanding do implementers have? </li></ul><ul><li>What is currently being implemented in the sites? </li></ul><ul><li>Does current implementation meet farmers’ needs? </li></ul><ul><li>What support do implementers receive? </li></ul><ul><li>What monitoring / learning / research takes place on rainwater management? </li></ul><ul><li>What barriers prevent better implementation? </li></ul>
  6. 6. Key questions - Innovation <ul><li>Who is currently innovating in RWM? </li></ul><ul><li>What support do they receive? </li></ul><ul><li>What networks currently exist and how do they function? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the scope for organisations to collaborate for more innovation? </li></ul><ul><li>What enables successful innovation? </li></ul><ul><li>What barriers constrain innovation? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Components of the Baseline <ul><li>Stakeholder analysis (national, regional and woreda) </li></ul><ul><li>Document collection and analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Interviews with key informants at woreda and kebele level </li></ul><ul><li>Focus group discussions with farmers </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis workshop (Feb 2011) </li></ul><ul><li>Report (by April 2011) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Timing Activity Time period Number of days Piloting and case study data collection Dec 2010 and Jan 2011 20 Data Entry early Feb 2011 (including visit to ILRI) 5 Preparing draft report March 15 2011 7 Analysis workshop 23 rd – 26 th March 3 Final report submission April 15 2011
  9. 9. Sampling <ul><li>Nested approach for site selection: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wereda: = landscape study sites, Jeldu, Diga and Fogera </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Kebeles: at least 5 to represent key agro-ecological zones, 2 from within hydrological catchment, 1 with and 1 without RWM interventions </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Sampling <ul><li>Respondents: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wereda: Respondents from different stakeholder groups will be interviewed on planning and implementation of rainwater management strategies as well as their interactions with other stakeholders operating in the woreda </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Woreda administration, WoARD, WoWR, Environmental protection, NGOs, Research organisations, private sector, TVET College, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Kebeles: DAs, land users </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Tools Tool Sampling approach A Community walk Conduct once with 1 or 2 key informants (DAs, Progressive farmers) (purposive sampling) for familiarization with the kebele B Timeline (KII) 1 or 2 elders/knowledgeable persons who know history and who can describe change over the years in the kebele; 1 interview per kebele (5 interviews per woreda) C Existing RWM scenarios (KII) With progressive farmers active in RWM; 1 per kebele (5 per woreda) D KII Farmer cooperatives or water user associations – 2 interviews per woreda E Institutional analysis (FGD) Conduct one per kebele , with 8-10 mixed wealth and livelihood groups of men and women. Purposively sample to ensure representatives from different groups (consider model farmers, FHH, wealth) – 5 FGD per woreda F Institutional analysis (FGD) Conduct one per Kebele , with 3 DAs (from Crop, Livestock and NRM) – 5 DA FGDs per woreda
