    Andhra Pradesh in India assumes an unfortunate distinction of facing maximum number of devastating cyclones among the states bordering Bay of Bengal. The delta areas of Krishna and Godavari had been more prone to it. The 1977 Diviseema cyclone was the most catastrophic in the recent history. The Cyclone of 6th November 1996 in East Godavari district was equally destructive. Total deaths and missing cases together were 2760 of which fisherfolk were 1435 apart from huge property loss. Though the c yclone prediction system could locate the cyclone, its actual path and intensity and the areas it would strike are probably not so predictable. Adding to that the cyclone warning dissemination system had many limitations by which the villagers or the fisherfolk in fishing areas did not get the messages in advance. FAO, Govt. of India and the Dept. of Fisheries, Andhra Pradesh Government, have proposed a pilot project to provide direct radio communication to the villages and fishermen at sea and to initiate appropriate sea safety measures and to study their effectiveness. Bhairavapalem & Balusutippa, the two worst affected villages during November, 1996 cyclone are hence proposed as pilot villages. Action for Food Production (AFPRO) took up the baseline study for F AO in this regard. The study aims_ at giving the basic details of the two pilot villages as well as the general account of the villages affected by November, 1996 cyclone, analysing the Cyclone Warning Dissemination System an d to make suggestions for improvement.

    Andhra Pradesh has a strong, well qualified, committed and forward looking State Animal Husbandry Department (AHD). The state has a large network of veterinary infrastructure (veterinary dispensaries, hospitals and polyclinics, rural livestock units, and AI centres) and individuals - professional veterinarians and the para-veterinary staff. However, changing internal and external environments require the animal health and breeding service delivery system to become more dynamic and needs-oriented , financially sustainable, and closer to the ground. Veterinarians are a critical part and major stakeholder of any livestock service delivery system. They are the link with the livestock owners and hence have insights into the ground level reality. To inform the Livestock Service Delivery Reform process in the state of Andhra Pradesh (AP) being facilitated by PPLPI-CALPI, it was important to also get their perspective on the main issues and constraints they faced and to elicit some suggestions on enhancing the quality and reach of the livestock services in the state.

    Kattumaram Fisheries and Fisherfolk; A Study in Kothapatnam Pallipalem, Andhra Pradesh, India-BOBP/WP/70 1991

    This working paper describes the attempt made to conduct an integrated study of the biological, economic and sociological aspects of the fisheries and fisherfolk that use one of the most traditional and popular fishing craft of the east coast of India kattumaram. The benefits of the results from such an approach are also presented in this report. The paper discusses the significance of using one or more types of fishing gear with such a traditional craft, correlation between income from fishin g and income from other sources and consequent diversity in income categories, relative performance by other types of craft, interactive fishing problems, exploitation of resources, underutilized resources, motorization of traditional craft, marketing practices and improvements and opportunities for additional/alternative income generation. Periodic exchanges of information between the study-group and fisherfolk, in the course of this study, opened the doors to communication with fisherfolk on i ssues concerning resources and management and culminated in the preparation of a series of extension material in this field. This project was carried out in cooperation with the Department of Fisheries, Andhra Pradesh State, India, and was sponsored by a Bayof Bengal Programme (BOBP) project, ‘Small-Scale Fisherfolk Communities in the Bay of Bengal’ (GCP/RAS/118/MUL). The post-harvest technological investigations were conducted under the direction and supervision of Mr. David Walker, Adviser , ODA. The socio-economic investigations were conducted by Ms. Christina Lundquist, Socio-economist (APO) of the Bay of Bengal Programme. And Messrs P.R. Prathap Kumar and I. Ramaswamy were responsible for painstakingly collecting most of the data included in this report.
