Request for Proposals for Field-Research Fellowships: ICRISAT-NCAP-IRRI project on Village Dynamics Studies
The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) invites participating research and development institutes to respond to this Request for Proposals (RFP), either from individual researchers or collaboration with PhD students from South Asia who wish to undertake field research in a ICRISAT-IRRI-NCAP project on Village Dynamics Studies in India and Bangladesh. Research fellowships funded through this RFP will contribute to policies and practices that alleviate rural poverty by analyzing and disseminating knowledge on rural livelihoods, poverty dynamics and development pathways of the poor in the semi-arid tropics and humid tropics of India and Bangladesh as well as on issues related to efficiency, equity and sustainability of agriculture.
Research support addresses policy issues, the social, environmental and technological dimensions of research, the training of professionals and the out- and up-scaling of information.
The Research Field Proposals aim at:
§ Funding innovative projects with high potential for impact,
§ Promoting the development of new research partnerships between National agricultural research institutions, Advance Research Institutes and Universities, and
§ Providing Asian research scholars with funding to undertake research on rural livelihoods, poverty and gender issues in India and Bangladesh.
The completed application form including any supporting material should be emailed to c(dot)bantilan(at)cgiar(dot)org with a copy to u(dot)deb(at)cgiar(dot)org and r(dot)padmaja(at)cgiar(dot)org.

Rigorous studies on the effects of introduced fish pond and vegetable technologies in Bangladesh show that “..women’s assets increase more relative to men’s when technologies are disseminated through women’s groups”, indicating that the gendered outcomes of new technologies depend on how they are introduced. This and related studies are reported in papers in the latest edition of the Journal of Development Effectiveness (http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/title~db=all~content=g938482929) and in a publication of the International Food Policy Research Institute.

This is an overview of research on the impact of “three antipoverty interventions in Bangladesh—the introduction of new agricultural technologies, educational transfers, and microfinance—on monetary and nonmonetary measures of well-being. This paper begins by setting out the conceptual framework, methodology, and empirical methods used for the evaluation of long-term impacts. It discusses the context of the evaluations and the longitudinal data used. Key findings from the individual papers are then presented, followed by an indicative analysis of the cost-effectiveness of these interventions. The overview concludes with implications for programs and policy.”
