With the government putting an ambitious target of establishing 10,000 new FPOs and about 7,000 existing ones, the FPOs are being seen as game changers and a pathway to achieve the goal of doubling of farmers’ incomes.
At the same time, there is an urgent need to train and strengthen the huge number of key functionaries of the 10,000 FPOs targeted by Government of India and given as a mandate to NABARD. This can be achieved through quality capacity building of promoting institutions in key aspects such as - assessment of CB needs, strengthening institutional and governance aspects, business planning, marketing, input business, compliances etc. Since the last 10 years, GIZ (through a number of allied projects) has been working with NABARD (and BIRD), Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare and various state governments for promotion and capacity building of FPO stakeholders. Recently, in collaboration with NABARD and BIRD, GIZ has developed an FPO CB Tool Kit of 13 different tools to support promoting organizations to build up the capacities of FPOs.
Under C-SASA project, GIZ is closely work with NABARD and BIRD to develop various capacity building approaches, training modules, knowledge products etc, which will further be tested and piloted in two states (Odisha and Telangana). These knowledge products will be available for mainstreaming into various FPO resource and training institutions through NABARD and BIRD.
