Practice on the Ground
TThe RRA-Network evolved various large scale program to build credible evidence on ground in the framework of RRA-Comprehensive Pilot program initiatives supported by policy dialogues, networking and research programs in various states.
RRA Network through its Comprehensive Pilots (CPs) and Thematic Pilots (TPs) implemented by members aimed to establish evidences and experiences on various aspects of rainfed agriculture like on soil, seed, millets, fisheries, livestock and credit, markets and institutions.
To ensure buy-in from the government, these pilots are expected to dovetail with large Government programmes like NREGA, RKVY, and watershed programme to solicit linkages with public research agencies such that the rigour and credibility of the action research is assured.
