  6. 6. : Global Targets <ul><li>ICT for Economic Development in 7 countries </li></ul><ul><li>- Improved income and employment opportunities for 600,000 small-scale producers and entrepreneurs organised in 240 organisations supported by 24 partner organisation1 in 7 countries through  improved productivity, better access to markets, financial services and institutional development by using ICT. We aim at 50% women in participants of C4C activities and interventions </li></ul><ul><li>= almost 100.000 producers per country </li></ul>
  7. 7. Regarding ICT in producer organisations C4C aims: <ul><li>80% of targeted producer organisations show substantial coverage of ICT costs. </li></ul><ul><li>So, what is substantial, and what is reasonable? </li></ul>
  8. 8. How to monitor improved income? <ul><li>Preferred Indicators: </li></ul><ul><li>Gross sales (=turnover) of FMOs </li></ul><ul><li>Number of members of FMOs </li></ul><ul><li>Calculate “turnover” per member. </li></ul><ul><li>(Does it make sense to calculate this separately for men and women)? </li></ul>
  9. 9. Present status of income indicator <ul><li>Gross sales of all FMOs of the consortium: ETB 6761868. </li></ul><ul><li>Total number of members 12993, so </li></ul><ul><li>Average Turnover per Member: ETB 520,42. </li></ul><ul><li>Consortium deals with 115 FMOs, so </li></ul><ul><li>average turnover per FMO = ETB 58798. </li></ul><ul><li>Very good that you have these data at hand! </li></ul>
  10. 10. Questions based on these data <ul><li>What perspectives/potential are there for </li></ul><ul><li>Reaching increased incomes of 100.000 farmers in Ethiopia (present membership 15000) by 2015 </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing turnover per member of FMOs? </li></ul><ul><li>These are questions we have to start thinking on now. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Role of ICT services in the chain
  12. 12. ICT services as chain supporter <ul><li>In a market based perspective: Costs incurred by operators should be earned back from sales. </li></ul><ul><li>ICT Costs incurred by FMOs should be deducted from gross margin before we calculate profit. </li></ul><ul><li>Both operational and procurement/investments in (new,renewal of) equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>(This is the end result of ICT integration in the chain, when can we reach that?) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Capacity building <ul><li>Improve capacities of NGOs, FMOs and individual farmers to work with information and communication technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure we have equal participation of men and women in our activities </li></ul><ul><li>How do we monitor? </li></ul><ul><li>Number of NGOs / FMOs completed integrating ICTs in their operations </li></ul><ul><li>2.a2 Number of farmers trained; number of NGO staf / field workers trained (and applying trainings; follow-up? (gender disaggregated) </li></ul>
  14. 14. How do we monitor Capacity Building? <ul><li>With workshops like this, with questionnaires (Olaf will explain) </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor the Number of NGOs / FMOs completed integrating ICTs in their operations (how do we define “graduation”?) </li></ul><ul><li>Number of farmers trained; number of NGO staff / field workers trained (and applying trainings; follow-up? (gender disaggregated) </li></ul>
