CHEVRON DIAGRAM 3D Problem Identification A listing of problems across all 8 pillars of TVM - eligible for Intervention Planning Quality Circles conducted by Village Communities Resource Mapping Venn diagrams that identify organizations, institutions, groups and locations that will influence decision making Seasonality Mapping Seasonal analysis of diseases, crops and village activities Social Mapping Recording of social facilities, infrastructure to enable village development planning Transect Walk Understand soil, water and habitat problems and opportunities at community level – build trust, confidence 1 2 3 4 5 SROI- Five Steps to Intervention Planning In TVM
  10. 10. Stabilize To resolve high social impact problems Structure Build capacity; infrastructure that enable capabilites Transform To create Livelihood Improvements and enable Financial Inclusion TVM is all about Interventions. Identifying, Planning, Executing and Measuring. While each village is unique; interventions are common because of the shared history of problems At KGVK we learn as we implement; Our customers are being trained to identify, plan, execute and measure SROI – Families of Interventions (Examples only – more detail exists)  Drinking Water  Smokeless Chullah  Seasonal Health Diseases  Village Level Entreprenurs  Vocation driven jobs  Dairy development  Livestock rearing  Eligible for Financial Inclusion Stabilize Unless Health and domestic environment is stable; transformation cannot take place. Investments are required; outcomes are non financial Structure Volume and Value metrics indicate capbailities. Market linkages enable transformation Transformation Beneficiaries become producers, entreprenurs and customers. Measure increases in income; acceptability for financial inclusion  Nutrition  Children’s Health  Temporary Sanitation  Women’s Empowerment  NRM Projects – continuous  Village Sanitation  School Infrastructure  Other Village Infrastructure  Vocational training  Market Linkages  Village Healthcare Programs  Rural Connectivity  Energy inclusion programs  SRI/SCI Programs  Non Food Crops  Dairy  Livestock

  14. 14. Major Findings Independent study of the 2014 Project Re-evaluate the Impact Measurement & Management System Key Research Question Evidence that either supports or refutes the hypothesis that SRI interventions work best when integrated with social development interventions Knowledge Transfer to UMUs SRI Center Components that should feed into the SRI Data Lab, SRI Research Lab and Training SRI – Rice : Research Opportunities Fieldwork : Case Study Development SRI – Rice : Standalone Intervention v Integrated with Social Development  Baseline Data collection  SRI Intervention Inputs  Capacity Building,  Cultivation  Farmer Care May - September Continuous Process (Oct 2014 – March 2015) December 2014 Detailed Project Report (DPR )setup and preparation underway Create Multiple Case Studies – Planting, Weeding, Harvesting Data Analysis – Understanding success factors; Lessons Learnt Establish Linkages between Watershed Management and SRI success Kharif Season October - December  Output & Outcome (Harvest)  Evidence Based Harvest Data Collection  Validate Log Frame Model and Improve

  17. 17. Value Proposition To be a total resource for Knowledge, Solutions /Services, Training, Network Linkage Customer Segments Serve diverse segments having similar needs Partnerships Multiple partnering relationships between academia, corporates, professionals, funders  SRI is all about Interventions. Identifying, Planning, Executing and Measuring.  Techniques, practices, training, seeds and tools are portable across geographies and national boundaries  Currently significant gaps exist in harmonizing SRI practices world wide – global mapping projects across multiple SRI attributes would create more knowledge and gains in output and outcomes  UMU is ideally situated in a major rice belt of India. Its unmatched permanent field access to villages where SRI is being introduced and practiced lends itself to research and perfecting SRI practices Center of Sustainable Agriculture – SRI-Rice Center Knowledge Hub  SRI Data Lab  SRI Research Lab Training  Para Agronomists  Rural Service Providers  SRI Field Work Network Linkage  Customers - Partners  Technology Partners – Data Collection (Vera Solutions); Performance Reporting (Sales Force Foundation); SRI Analytics (IBM SPSS)  Impact Measurement Partners – Niiti Consulting  Media Partners  Market Linkage Partners Solutions & Services  SRI Interventions  Standalone /TVM  Biomass/Compost Dev  Soil Lab – Testing Analysis  Seed Analysis, Development & Procurement  Impact Measurement (SROI)  Tools - R&D/Supply Network  GIS Mapping  Farmers  Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programs  NGOs  Development Institutions  Universities  Research Institutes  Government Programs  Research Partners (Collaborative Agreements; Joint Projects)  Field Partners e.g. KGVK  SRI Solution Partners e.g. NGOs that have unique solutions & need academia linkages Resources Hard and Soft resources being committed at Usha Martin University  Building Infrastructure (included in Campus Master Plan)  Field work infrastructure in place through Field Partner – KGVK  Front & Back Office Processes (re-locate some and scale up +new)  Technology Licenses  People  Scientists  Technicians  Permanent Staff  Rotate – Projects  Center Apprentices  Rural Service Provider Certification
