ARTI’s Village Development Plan in the context of Millennium Development Goals

A Proposal Concept for CSR Initiatives of Corporate HousesbyDr. Priyadarshini KarveAppropriate Rural Technology Institute (ARTI)pkarve@arti-india.org

objective
Objective
  • To take up development activities in a village focused on addressing the eight MDGs, and primarily using technologies developed by ARTI, in a time bound manner.
  • Establish linkages with other agencies to address the MDGs not directly addressed by ARTI’s solutions.
  • Ensuring sustainability of the development process, through active involvement of local people and government and non-government agencies.
  • The model if successful, can be replicated elsewhere.
millennium development goals
Millennium Development Goals
  • MDGs are goals set by the United Nations in a roadmap for equitable and sustainable development in the developing world.
  • Quantified targets for dramatically reducing extreme poverty in its many dimensions by 2015 – income poverty, hunger, disease, exclusion, lack of infrastructure and shelter – while promoting gender equality, education, health, and environmental sustainability.
  • ARTI’s Technologies help in achieving all the eight MDGs.

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
    • The specific issues
      • Identify BPL and low income families
      • Provide with opportunities for income enhancement
      • Ensure food, water, energy, shelter security
    • ARTI’s solutions
      • Production and sale of seedlings of seasonal crops
      • Production and sale of novel potted plants
      • Vegetable production for self consumption and sale
      • Production of bamboo structures (modular CKD kits)
      • Use of treated bamboo/wood for improving quality of dwellings
      • Rainwater harvesting using low cost water storage tanks
      • Improved cookstoves to reduce biomass fuel consumption and indoor air pollution
    • Marketing support is essential through external agencies

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 2: Achieve universal primary education
    • Not directly linked with ARTI’s technological solutions
    • Hands on training in ARTI’s technologies can impart useful life skills to school drop out teenagers
    • Installation of ARTI biogas or community stove in the school can help in reducing the fuel sourcing problems associated with the mid-day meal scheme

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
    • Specific Issues
      • Increasing women’s role in family level decision making
      • Putting a value on household work
      • Creating structures that allow women to earn incomes
      • Focus on improving women’s quality of life
      • Awareness raising and social conditioning about gender equality
    • ARTI’s solutions
      • Training programmes for SHGs in ARTI technologies - novel opportunities of income generation
      • Improved cookstoves, biogas, water storage tank near the house – specifically addressing quality of life and health issues of women
    • SHG and microfinance are important drivers for this MDG

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 4: Reduce Child Mortality
    • Not directly linked with ARTI’s technological solutions
    • Use of improved cooking devices in the house reduces indoor air pollution, which is one of the factors affecting children’s health
    • ARTI’s income generating technologies increase family income, leading to improved quality of life and access to better health care facilities

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 5: Improve Maternal Health
    • Not directly linked with ARTI’s technological solutions
    • Use of improved cooking devices in the house reduces indoor air pollution, which is one of the factors that has been linked with increased probability of still births and premature births
    • ARTI’s income generating technologies increase family income, and contribute to women’s empowerment leading to improved quality of life and access to better health care facilities for women

MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases
    • Not directly linked with ARTI’s technological solutions
    • Increased incomes help improve quality of life through better nutrition and access to better health care, indirectly helping in being better prepared to deal with diseases
mdgs and arti s technologies10
MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability
    • Key issues
      • Sustainable and pollution free use of locally available resources
    • ARTI’s solutions
      • All of ARTI’s technologies are appropriate, i.e., based on local resources and environment friendly
      • ARTI agricultural technologies can be used in increasing the productivity of available agricultural land, both in terms of yield as well as income
      • ARTI’s energy technologies can be used for using available biomass resource to fulfill maximum possible energy needs in the village, with grid electricity and externally sourced fossil fuels as supplementary supplies
    • Mobilisation and motivation of the community is important and needs sustained support
mdgs and arti s technologies11
MDGs and ARTI’s Technologies
  • MDG 8: Develop a Global Partnership for Development
    • ARTI has a vast experience of working with a wide range of partners – from grass root level organisations to globally operating charities
    • The village development plan will involve a collaborative effort between a corporate house (funder and infrastructure supporter), ARTI (technology solution provider), village based NGOs and SHGs (local implementers and support service providers), village panchayat (local support and linkage with government schemes), Department of Science and Technology (funding for specific research addressing unique needs of the village).
