Achievement• DBI is implemented through 32 User Groups to maintain the assets.• Facilitated village level User Groups including village population about the importance of natural resources; their immediate environment and how to assess and manage their local natural resources of land, water, biodiversity in the long run.• Village Authority; village institutions involved in the program implementation and beneficiary as well.• The DBI has provided drinking water cum irrigation for their fields in two villages 2 . The total households benefitted are 94 (Taphou village under YES is 20 + Langja village under RWUS is 74).• The program has triggered to take up second crops through “Revolving fund” to 297 beneficiaries/households @ Rs. 1000/- -2500/- in 32 villages.
Difficulties faced & steps taken• Frequent bandh and strikes. (3 months bandhs and price hike of fuel and transport of raw materials) (Raised local contributions)• Social problems like single cropping & cattle grazing after paddy harvest. Creating Revolving Fund for seconds/third crops.• Deforestation at catchment area Awareness/adult education for Village authority/tribal apex body/Churches etc.
Leveraging for DBI (Scope)• RNBA is lobbying state Government to include DBI in the NERGA schemes. There is strong possibility for this.
Suggestions to make the DBI program better• Please continue to support DBI projects because DBI is appropriate rural base technology in lieu of huge infrastructures dams which are not maintained.• Pre-sanction visit by Livolink Foundation will be helpful to the partners.• Cost of materials for NE region is higher.
