    This paper provides a summary review of the development and implementation of BAIF’s sericulture programme in the Indian state of Maharashtra. BAIF Development Research Foundation (BAIF), a national NGO based in Pune, Maharashtra, has been active in developing and promoting better livelihood options for the rural poor in the country. BAIF adopted a multi-pronged strategic approach by introducing a technology-based integrated farming model, empowering and capacitating communities to take the lead in implementation and marketing of the produce, but providing strong backup support with an effective monitoring system. This paper provides an overview of the technological innovations that resulted from BAIF’s on-station and on-farm experimentation, the economics of sericulture along the entire value chain from cocoon to raw silk to silk fabric, and the environmental impact of two forms of sericulture – smallholder farmers using planted mulberry trees and tribal communities, relying on Arjuna / Asan trees in natural forests to feed the silkworms.

    Small-scale fisheries (SSF) play an important role in food security and poverty reduction. However, this role is not always recognized and many SSF communities remain marginalized, both with regard to resource management and from a broader social and economic perspective. The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) are the first international instrument dedicated entirely to the immensely important small-scale fisheries sector. The project “Enhancing the contribution of small-scale fisheries to food security and sustainable livelihoods through better policies, strategies and initiatives” is part of the FAO Umbrella Programme for the promotion and application of the SSF Guidelines. The evaluation of this project provides important lessons and recommendations that will inform the formulation and implementation of related on-going projects under the Umbrella Programme, for enhanced promotion and application of the SSF Guidelines. The evaluation found that the project has succeeded in firmly anchoring SSF considerations in the global fisheries policy and research agendas, and in increasing momentum in regional and national awareness of, and commitment to, the SSF Guidelines. The project has allowed a process of consolidation of the trajectory of change initiated with the adoption of the SSF Guidelines, but more time is needed for benefits to trickle to lower levels of governance and to SSF communities themselves.
