SYSTEM OF RICE
INTENSIFICATION
PROGRAM
The Situation of Women in Jeevika’s Operational Area
 Jeevika was founded in 1990 and was registered in





1994
The operational area is spread across 47 villages in
the district of South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India
Complicated patriarchal context owing to proximity
of some villages to the urban area
Religious diversity
In spite of diversities, there exists a commonality in
the lives of all women
The Situation of Women in Jeevika’s Operational Area
Restriction
on mobility
Rampant
violence
against
women and
girls

Lack of access
to
education, hea
lthcare and
livelihood
opportunities

Control
over
sexuality

Underprivileged
rural women

Little control
over
participation
in livelihood
activities, inc
luding
agricultural
work

Lack of
decisionmaking
power
within and
outside the
family

Lack of
control
over
financial
and other
resources
Jeevika’s Interventions
 Jeevika started its work through a micro-savings and

credit program and livelihood generation activities
with the aim to ensure women’s access to financial
resources
 It became apparent that women’s access to financial
resources was not necessarily leading to their control
over those resources, however
 It became necessary to intervene also in the areas of
social restrictions that women faced
 Financial interventions thus became supplemented
with interventions on women’s social rights
SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI) PROGRAM
The SRI Program was
launched in 2008 with the
following objectives :
 Ensure environmental

and Farmer



sustainability
Ensure food security
Make visible women’s work
as agricultural producers
Currently the Program is
being implemented in
around 15 villages with 500
farmers
40% of the participating
farmers are women
Advantages of the SRI Method
 Produces higher-

yielding crops
 Reduces use of water by

25-50%
 Promotes the use of

organic manure to
improve crop and soil
The Support that Jeevika Provides
 Motivating the farmers to shift to the SRI method
 Regular methodological assistance
 Providing the Package of Practices (a combination of

seeds and manures, mainly organic) to the farmers
 Regular equipment support in the form of weeders,
threshers, tractors, etc. which become community assets
 Formation of Farmers’ Clubs that puts emphasis on
promoting the voices of women farmers
 Regular liaison with government departments and
panchayats to promote the SRI method
Production comparison between SRI Method and
Traditional Method of Farming

Note that farmers often begin their SRI practice on their poorer lands
Challenges
 Lack of resources available to farmers

 Rapid urbanization
 Lack of ownership of women farmers over





lands and others resources
Lack of participati0n of women farmers in
decision- making processes
Dependence on traditional methods of farming
Women farmers denied access to markets
Lack of financial assistance to further
implement the program
Looking Ahead
 Increase the number of farmers participating in the






SRI program to at least 1000 over the next one year
Establish market linkages for the farmers, mainly
women farmers
Increase the visibility of women farmers, and increase
their decision-making processes
Ensure that at least 50% farmers in the program are
women farmers over the next two years (currently the
share is about 40%)
Strengthen the Farmers’ Clubs

1314- Jeevika Development Society - System of Rice Intensification Program

  • 1. JEEVIKA DEVELOPMNET SOCIETY SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION PROGRAM
  • 2. The Situation of Women in Jeevika’s Operational Area  Jeevika was founded in 1990 and was registered in     1994 The operational area is spread across 47 villages in the district of South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India Complicated patriarchal context owing to proximity of some villages to the urban area Religious diversity In spite of diversities, there exists a commonality in the lives of all women
  • 3. The Situation of Women in Jeevika’s Operational Area Restriction on mobility Rampant violence against women and girls Lack of access to education, hea lthcare and livelihood opportunities Control over sexuality Underprivileged rural women Little control over participation in livelihood activities, inc luding agricultural work Lack of decisionmaking power within and outside the family Lack of control over financial and other resources
  • 4. Jeevika’s Interventions  Jeevika started its work through a micro-savings and credit program and livelihood generation activities with the aim to ensure women’s access to financial resources  It became apparent that women’s access to financial resources was not necessarily leading to their control over those resources, however  It became necessary to intervene also in the areas of social restrictions that women faced  Financial interventions thus became supplemented with interventions on women’s social rights
  • 5. SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI) PROGRAM The SRI Program was launched in 2008 with the following objectives :  Ensure environmental    Chhabi Sardar, SRI Field Worker and Farmer  sustainability Ensure food security Make visible women’s work as agricultural producers Currently the Program is being implemented in around 15 villages with 500 farmers 40% of the participating farmers are women
  • 6. Advantages of the SRI Method  Produces higher- yielding crops  Reduces use of water by 25-50%  Promotes the use of organic manure to improve crop and soil
  • 7. The Support that Jeevika Provides  Motivating the farmers to shift to the SRI method  Regular methodological assistance  Providing the Package of Practices (a combination of seeds and manures, mainly organic) to the farmers  Regular equipment support in the form of weeders, threshers, tractors, etc. which become community assets  Formation of Farmers’ Clubs that puts emphasis on promoting the voices of women farmers  Regular liaison with government departments and panchayats to promote the SRI method
  • 8. Production comparison between SRI Method and Traditional Method of Farming Note that farmers often begin their SRI practice on their poorer lands
  • 9. Challenges  Lack of resources available to farmers  Rapid urbanization  Lack of ownership of women farmers over     lands and others resources Lack of participati0n of women farmers in decision- making processes Dependence on traditional methods of farming Women farmers denied access to markets Lack of financial assistance to further implement the program
  • 10. Looking Ahead  Increase the number of farmers participating in the     SRI program to at least 1000 over the next one year Establish market linkages for the farmers, mainly women farmers Increase the visibility of women farmers, and increase their decision-making processes Ensure that at least 50% farmers in the program are women farmers over the next two years (currently the share is about 40%) Strengthen the Farmers’ Clubs
