Fluoride Menace in Orissa

Publication Date :12-Nov-2007

Fluoride is the compound form of fluorine. Fluorine is a highly toxic and corrosive gas, light yellow–green in colour and with a pungent smell. Fluoride accounts for about 0.3g/kg (0.06 to 0.09%) of the earth crust. Fluoride bearing rocks are abundant in India. As of result, fluoride leaches out and contaminates the adjacent water and soil resources.

Community Action in a Climate Change Regime

Publication Date :09-Feb-2012

Context and Background With 140 million people, Bangladesh is one of the world's densest nations and also one of the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. People in Bangladesh live precariously close to the risks of cyclones, floods and droughts. More than 100 million people living in rural areas, mostly poor, add the vuluerability factors.

Community Forestry

Publication Date :01-Feb-2012

Community forestry has been commonly defined as involvement of local communities in the protection and/or management of public forests. Such a perception doesn't distinguish between community forestry, participatory forestry and other such related terminologies and therefore ignores the legal, social and other aspects of the actual relationship. We need to realize that such ignorance may sometimes do injustice to the people who endeavour to save the precious forest resources with a spirit so close to their heart and who demand no external interference in their relationship with their beloved forest patch. As per Revington's definition, quoted hereinafter, one of the essential parameters of community forestry should be clearly and legally defined boundaries.

The Halfway Mark & State of Realization of MDGs in Orissa

Publication Date :11-Jul-2007

Orissa Economic Survey 2006-07 shows the incidence of poverty in Orissa since 1973-74 to 1999-00. According to the Survey, though the incidence of poverty in Orissa shows a declining trend since 1983-84, it is still the highest among all the states. As per BPL Survey 1999-00, the incidence of poverty in Orissa was 47.15 %: 48.01 percent in rural areas and 42.83 percent in urban areas. Table-1 shows not only the declining trend of poverty ratio in Orissa, since 1977-78 to 1999-00, but also the trend of the poverty ratio among the major states in India. While the all-India poverty ratio in the year 1999-00 was 26.10 %, it was the lowest in Punjab at 6.16%. Bihar, which figured just above Orissa in the list, had a poverty ratio of 42.60%.

Water Resources of Odisha

Publication Date :01-Dec-2010

Estimations give an impression that Odisha has plenty of water resources. But the rate at which the myth of water being an infinite resource is breaking, also pose genuine questions on the belief of Odisha being a water resource rich state. Warning bells already have started ringing. Despite efforts by the governments and huge investments, population not having access to adequate quantity of water is increasing in leaps and bounds with every passing year. So what the status in Odisha really is? Let’s have a look at some stats and facts.

A study on land alienation in Odisha. The natural-resource-based life & livelihood is fast becoming a tradition of the past with the new generation focusing on careers and livelihood options that relate to a synthetic and artificial world. Resources are abandoned or alienated in this process, CPRs are ignored/neglected/encroached, and household/rural economy is more & more controlled by alien actors. Conventional cropping being replaced by pulpwood plantation is but a reflection of this misery.

Report on Functioning of PESA in Odisha

Publication Date :14-Jan-2013

RCDC assigned a task of compiling a report on the functioning of PESA in the state of Odisha based both on secondary analysis and primary survey at field level, to a local consultant organization National Institute for Development Innovation(NIDI) in late 2010. Agreeing with our observation that the report submitted under the same required further improvements and enrichments the consultant made fresh efforts in 2011 and submitted an improved version of the same without any extra charges. However, we found that to make it a public document useful to all stakeholders we need to modify the same significantly and add new section(s) as well as some exclusive analysis to this report. If this modification took almost a year to complete then that is primarily because of the limitations of time on the part of the undersigned to devote sufficient time for the same, but that in fact proved to be a blessing in disguise ultimately as some remarkable developments took place in the meantime helping us to prepare an updated version.

Tendu Leaf Management in Light of FRA

Publication Date :14-Jan-2013

Due to its great economic value as well as social importance, Tendu leaf, also known as the ‘golden leaf’, can and does influence governments across party lines. While revenue from tendu leaves accounts for 80 -90% of the total forest revenue, it also provides the second largest avenue for employment, next only to agriculture. More importantly, it provides employment in the agricultural lean season and enables a farmer to earn money for investment in the next agricultural operation.

Global Policy Change Vs Odishan Approach on Climate Change

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

India ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1993, and the Kyoto Protocol in 2002. Under the Convention, India (and other developing countries), has not had to undertake legally binding commitments to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, since the major proportion of the problem (and historical responsibility) was due to emissions from developed countries. As a result, the Kyoto Protocol the burden of emissions reductions is not placed on India (and other developing countries) ‐ they are exempt from mandatory emissions reductions.

A Brief Note on Collective NTFP Marketing: RCDC's Experience

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

Collective marketing of NTFPs has been a common strategy to help secure the rights of & benefits for the primary collectors, particularly for women. As well-known the traders and even the intermediaries are men whereas the primary collectors are usually women. Traders thrive on the ignorance & innocence of these primary collectors, and collective effort gives the latter a better scope to deal with the hard realities of market dynamics. It gives a better bargaining power, helps control the process from collection to value addition followed by marketing so as to facilitate sustainable extraction practices, relaxes the burden of loss by sharing among the members, creates better scope for availing support for capacity building (technical/financial), and ultimately makes them able to go beyond trading and support something for the cause of the society(like, facilitating the implementation of Forest Rights Act, providing employment to physically-challenged or otherwise vulnerable individuals, etc.). When cooperatives extend their services for the greater benefit of the society, they become what may be called Socially Embracing Cooperatives.

Contract Farming in Odisha: Prospects and Constraints

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

Contract farming is one of the illustrated examples of the impact of globalization and liberalized economic policy in the agriculture sector. While the farm sector is facing an identity crisis amidst growing dominance of the industrial sector, contract farming helped to create a new hope in this scenario. It established a link between the farm sector and the corporate sector too. This way it created new prospects for the agricultural sector, and added to the dignity of the farmer. However, the actual practice was often not so farmer-friendly. Rather it was an arrangement to best exploit the farmers’ lands in the interest of the contracting agency. Innocence and ignorance of the farmers,absence of a strong farmer-security mechanism, and tactfully drafted legal papers favoured the other side very much. And the result was quite obvious; farmers suffering in many ways, long-term socioeconomic and environmental threats perceived, and marginality of farmers getting increased.

Procedures of Workshop on Gums & Resins in India

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

Gums and resins, commonly used in every day life, are having ample importance as non timber forest produce. Apart from use in torches, embalming chemicals, waterproofing and caulking ships, incense, paints and medicines, a major portion of the gums and resins are also used as food additives. So food industries worldwide are emerging as potential users of gums and resins. Gums and resins are having a niche market globally. A recent statistics says export of gums and resins from India were to the tune of Rs. 5 billion per annum. Inspite of a shift in the global market from natural products to synthetic one, the former has its own place and share in the market. The reason is the growing consciousness for organic/ natural foods. Still a lot to be done for accelerating the production and trade situation both qualitatively and quantitatively. Opportunities to be explored after having a first hand knowledge on the world trade scenario of the produce. Many organizations are working in this line to know the situation. NTFP Exchange Programme in South and South East Asia, a joint initiative of local and regional NGO’s and indigenous organizations in the region is doing a study on the world market of resins and gums. The objective of the study is to assess the overall trade policies and instruments, market situation, production, consumption, value chain, technologies etc. The expected outcome of the study would help in developing strategies for the future.

State of Pani Panchayat in Odisha

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

The Orissa Government, with a view to providing equitable, timely and assured irrigation has introduced the concept of Pani Panchayat for PIM. The concepts would finally lead to transfer of tertiary irrigation networks (minor/sub-minors)to registered Pani Panchayats. The responsibility of operation and maintenance (O&M) of the reservoir/ diversion weir (as the case may be) dam, spillways, sluices, primary and secondary distribution networks etc. rest with the department of water resources, whereas the responsibility of O&M of the tertiary systems i.e. below minor and sub-minor would remain with the Pani Panchayat. The geographical extent of the programme covers the entire state comprising of about 16 lakh hectares of major, medium and minor irrigation command areas in all 30 districts of Orissa.

Proceedings of the Regional Consultation on Biodiversity Conservation & Bioresource Governance

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

The 73rd amendment in the Constitution of India provides for transfer of power to the PRIs.Accordingly, different states have differently vested a part of these powers to the GPs. The Biodiversity Act, 2002 followed by its Rules of 2004 provides for an additional responsibility,i.e. biodiversity conservation by the PRIs(and ULBs) primarily through the Biodiversity Management Committees(BMCs) at GP level. A study commissioned by RCDC in 4 states of India(Odisha, Jharkhand,Madhya Pradesh & Andhra Pradesh) revealed the status of actual implementation of this provision. A regional consultation was organized at Bhubaneswar on 28th December 2010 in Hotel New Marrion to share these findings and also to provide an opportunity to representatives from concerned states to share their own observations and experiences. This programme was attended by large number(more than 90) of PRI representatives and community representatives alongwith representatives from PRERAK, an NGO of Chhatisgarh.

Implementation of Biological Diversity Act in India

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

The study on the actual implementation of the Biological Diversity Act was commissioned by RCDC in 2010. As the report submitted by the 1st consultant did not focus on state-level field verifications, a second phase of the study was then assigned to another consultant so as to analyse & document the actual status in four different states.

Why Status Report? (On Water)

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

The quantity and quantity of drinking water the citizen get is an indicator of development of the people of the state. Perceptions about the drinking water scenario in Orissa have been a point of debate since quite some time. The media paints the drinking water scenario in the state as quite bleak. One will hardly find a community development block in the state from where the newspapers have not reported water scarcity or suffering of people not having access to potable water. But the claims by the government as well as the government documents give an altogether different picture. Government claims to have provided drinking water to all. At least that is what the statistics of tube wells and water supply schemes in Orissa say. These two different pictures of drinking water scenario in the state is so widely different that one fails to draw a conclusion about the real drinking water scenario in the State of Orissa.

The Biofuel Policy: Global Trend With Impact in Odisha

Publication Date :07-Feb-2013

The biofuel perspective projects a responsibility and preparedness to face the depleting resources of mineral fuels. Biofuel policy papers are among the few policy statements that are primarily scientific with little or no political element in them, and rather represent a political responsibility with a scientific approach. However, in reality(and unfortunately) they have rather become effective mediums of a political economy that allows vested interest groups to humbly dominate the scene and flourish their business. In brief, the cause of earth & its people turns into the cause of some seed-suppliers and related business groups.

RCDC intends to bring a policy change through this publication at appropriate level, with corresponding reflections at the ground level. Whereas the present study analysed the situation in eight states of India, the basic observations are more or less same throughout the country; hence the basic recommendations & conclusions are applicable for the country. However, some of the statistical data might have changed in the meantime, and also few policy changes might also have occurred at the state level. Readers are therefore advised to update themselves with the latest developments.

Land use management in Odisha

Publication Date :26-Oct-2013

RCDC pursued a bio-resource governance programme during the period of 2009-11 in four tribal districts of Odisha with an objective of developing model GPs on bioresource governance. Land use being a major factor in natural resource governance, changes in land utilization, particularly forest land diversion, has been a matter of concern for these areas. In this backdrop, RCDC intended for an in-depth analysis of the dynamics of the changes in land utilization pattern in the state with focus on forest land diversion. The work was assigned to a consultancy firm SERVICE which submitted its report in 2011. The study was carried out under the project supported by Broederlijk Delen, one of RCDC’s trusted partners in development.


Publication Date :26-Nov-2013

Since the last 10-15 years, hybrid maize cultivation has taken over the traditional crops of the Nabarangpur district to a large extent. The main area of maize cultivation comes under the Umerkote and Jharigan Blocks. RCDC has been concerned to see that this cultivation expands at the cost of both the ecology of the area, and also the social and socioeconomic strength of the area. Large areas of good forest have been cleared for this cultivation, and use of pesticides has increased environmental pollution in the area threatening the very health of the farmers. Moreover, the innocent farmers do not understand that despite an encouraging cash flow the cultivation doesn’t actually offer a good return in terms of net gain. Since RCDC doesn’t see such kind of a practice to be a sustainable development option, hence it was decided to conduct a small study on the real dynamics of maize cultivation in the region, and for this purpose Umerkote and Jharigan blocks were selected for the survey.

Green Manifesto

Publication Date :22-Mar-2014

The NGO sector is probably the third largest organized employment sector after the public- and private sectors. NGOs work in the public interest with a mixed attitude of professionalism and voluntarism to supplement and/or complement the efforts of a welfare State(government). Their strength lies in their flexibility and adaptability to the work environment, which helps them act swiftly unlike the government machinery which is tangled with redtapism. They successfully link academicians, technocrats, bureaucrats, social scientists, policy makers, and other stakeholders for the greater cause of the people and the nation. Develop and promote the NGO sector as the development partner; help stabilize this potential sector for employment.
