The Baseline Project - Objective and Design
The National Rural Livelihoods Project (NRLP) has been developed on the basis of lessons learned from World Bank-supported projects in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan. It has a rural poverty eradication focus and its objective is “to establish efficient and effective institutional platforms of the rural poor that enable them to increase their household income through sustainable livelihood enhancements and improved access to financial and selected public services”. To this end NRLP will assist the GoI in setting up a National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) in the Ministry of Rural Development. NRLP has four components :
* Component 1 focuses on Institutional and Human Capacity Development, including establishment of professional teams at national, state and district levels.
* Component 2 provides State Livelihood Support, including institution and capacity building, mobilizing the poor into producer cooperatives, common interest groups (CIGs), self-help groups (SHGs) and their federations. This component also provides investment support through livelihood grants and support to Special Programs. Once they have reached a certain level of maturity as assessed by pre-determined standards, SHGs, producer cooperatives, CIGs and their federations are provided with investment support in the form of grants to undertake economically sound activities. These grants will enable the groups to leverage additional funds from the banking system (including micro-finance institutions) to scale-up their activities. The project supports the groups in linking up with financial and market institutions once proof-of-concept has been established to ensure commercial viability. The project also facilitates linking up the groups with government schemes such as MKSP, MNREGS, Watershed Programs and the National Skills Development Cooperation. The Special Programs facility of Component 2 will finance the cost of pilots, including capacity building expenditures, to incubate institutional innovations by assisting States in setting up special-purpose entities such as foundations and societies to consolidate scaled-up initiatives that have proven their commercial validity. These institutional forms will have flexibility to develop a range of partnerships and to leverage resources from public as well as private sources. Activities under the Special Programs facility will cover all states, including those that are not part of the Bank‟s 12 focal states under NRLP. _* Component 3 on Innovation and Partnerships will support the spread of ideas from across the country to maximize benefits to the rural poor. While Bank support is focused on 12 states, covering 85 percent of all poor rural households in the country, this component is available for all states. Selected innovations identified through development marketplace-type forums that have the potential to be scaled-up in a viable manner in partnership with development foundations will be supported. Innovation Forums organized at national, regional and state levels will create a platform for bringing together the innovators, civil society organizations, the business sector, the government, development agencies and academia for improving livelihood opportunities to the poor, including those related to adaptation. Innovative ideas identified at the forum will be financed through a transparent award system.
* Component 4 provides Project Implementation Support.
