POST PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY STUDY OF SETU09CARE Bangladesh implemented (2009-2015) Social and Economic Transformation of the Ultra Poor (SETU), under the EEP/SHiREE program funded by former UKaid from the Department for International and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation in four districts: Ranpur, Gaibandha, Lalmonirhat and Nilphamari of the Northwest region of the country that is severely affected by seasonal food insecurity. The design of SETU was structured around CARE's Criteria and threshold of calculating multidimensional poverty livelihood opportunities; social inequalities playing out different forms of exploitation, dependence, discrimination, and marginalization; and weak governance at all levels resulting in lack of participation of extreme poor and poor people in Union Parishad and local development processes.This PPS study of SETU aims to assess how and to what extent the graduation model sustains in later years; and the factors that determine sustainability or lack thereof in the same population group. The study followed the same area and sample (418) households of SETU’s end evaluation study and included 95% of households who graduated and 5% of HH who have not graduated. Read More...


This study has been elaborated in order to respond to the needs of CARE International Balkans for the design of the project “New economic opportunities for returnees and local marginalised local people in South-East Serbia”. The research is comprised of several approaches with the aim to deliver sufficient information and data on prospects for the successful implementation of the planned action: information on possibilities for socio-economic inclusion of returnees (in Serbia) and prospects of economic improvement for other groups of citizens vulnerable to migration to western countries.
Purpose of this study is to provide a sound basis for developing a project concept and proposal, by identifying project preconditions, opportunities and risks for its implementation. This study provides relevant information on the socio-economic status of returnees and vulnerable local population, their capacity for economic engagement and employment, access to the labour market, as well as economic potential of local business environment.
CARE International Balkans as the lead organization has selected two partners from civil society organizations, ENECA and NEXUS, as project partners which are situated in the regions in which the project would be implemented. The initial project idea has defined geographical coverage which would include 6 administrative districts in Serbia, concentrated in South East Serbia (districts of Pcinj, Jablanica, Nis, Pirot, Bor and Timok). According to the Population Census conducted in 2011 in Serbia, the population of 6 identified districts totals to 1 089 142 inhabitants of which 481 576 are females. These 6 districts make up 15.15% of the overall population of Serbia according to the 2011 Census. Of the 32 local self governments, 21 are classified in the 4th category of development, 5 are in the 3rd category of development, 4 are in the 2nd category and only 2 (Nis and Bor) are in the 1st category of economic development defined by the Regional Development Agency of Serbia. Additionally, a large number of the LSGs in the 4th category are additionally classified into the group of devastated areas/LSGs.

Synthese Analyse Rapide Genre – Est du Cameroun

La crise en RCA et l’afflux de refugies n’a pas changé les rôles et relations ci-dessus. Les seuls changements positif relevé est l’existence de plus de main d’œuvre pour le travail de la terre. Par contre tous les groupes consultes ont noté plusieurs impacts négatifs qui alimentent des tensions perceptibles entre les refugies et leurs communautés hôtes parmi lesquels:

- Accès aux soins de santé : les refugies sont soignés gratuitement dans les centres de sante existants, et les autochtones doivent payer leurs soins, longues files d’attentes au centre de sante car les refugies ont la priorité
- Accès à l’EHA: les refugies disposent de plusieurs forages alors que leurs forages sont soit non fonctionnels soit inexistant ou ne suffisent pas. Ils sont « obligés de payer l’eau dans le forage des anciens refugiés et/ou d’utiliser l’eau des rivières polluées par les défécations des réfugiés ».
- Accès aux produits de base sur les marchés : avec l’arrivée des refugies, les prix des denrées ont augmenté significativement, exemple la tasse de couscous de manioc est passée de 500 à 2000Fcfa),
- Pression sur les ressources en eau et le pâturage par les refugies et leurs animaux. Destruction des champs de cultures par les troupeaux
- Multiplication de cas de vols : sentiment d’insécurité au sein de la population autochtone qui attribue la recrudescence des vols à la présence des refugiés Read More...
