36 Uncertainty from Below Agency Team : Social, Technological and Environmental Pathways to Sustainability (STEPS) Centre, nstitute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, U.K. : Upasana Ghosh, Shibaji Bose (Consultant), ittika Brahmachari, Sujan Sarkar Global warming has been bringing about irreversible changes in the climate and environmental systems around the globe. This climate induced uncertainty has usually been experienced by different people in different ways. t has been theorized from above by experts, natural scientists and policy makers. But that may have very little to do with how men and women experience, understand and cope with uncertainty in their daily lives. The aim of this project is to bridge the gap in the perception of the people who theorize climate change from above, and those who experience it from below. This gap is bridged through advocacy and communication by middle level stakeholders through dialogue.

37 Strengthening S in Bihar With the launch of National ural ealth ission, several radical changes have taken place in public health, infrastructure and service delivery. owever, there is an enormous scope for advancement in the quality of services. ealth anagement nformation System (S) is a crucial management tool in N which is central in determining whether the key activities of the program are carried out as planned, and whether these activities have the expected outcome and impact. t helps to improve services, knowledge, communication, outcomes, quality, and efficiency of the health system. n the year 2008, the S cell was placed in the state of Bihar and necessary equipment and network were somehow available up to the Block PC level. The system was functioning well and certain data was captured and reported at the portal side. owever, quality data capture remains a major concern and the data was generated mechanically and the health staff involved in the program implementation and even S activities lacked analytical and presentation skills to provide proper feedback to the program implementers. To improve the quality of S data in terms of timeliness, completeness and correctness and its utilization in planning and decision making at every health facility level in Bihar, UNFPA along with State ealth Society, Bihar (SSB), and, Jaipur implemented a project titled Strengthening of S in Bihar. Systemic management and application of information adds to the effectiveness of a program by establishing clear links between program goals and objectives and expected results or outcomes. t can help managers to obtain relevant information that can subsequently be used as the basis for programmatic fine-tuning with new solutions, re-orientation of the program and the future course of planning and decision making. The Project has successfully completed its tenure. The project has an immense impact on the health system of Bihar, especially on evidence-based planning, monitoring and decision making through better quality of S data. The Project Process Document has been developed to disseminate the processes adopted during the implementation and to share experiences and learning to all key stakeholders of the ealth System. ealth of the Urban Poor Program The quality of life of the urban poor can be enhanced by improving health and health determinants - water, sanitation, nutrition and hygiene. The eath of the Urban Poor (UP) program works to improve the delivery of a comprehensive package of maternal and child health, nutrition interventions, water supply, sanitation and hygiene services to urban communities. UP does this by strengthening the efforts of edical ealth & Family Welfare, Women and Child Development, Local Self Government, Public ealth Engineering Department and Civil Society Organizations by providing technical assistance, such as evidence-based planning, supportive supervision, process and outcome monitoring, and engaging the community in planning, monitoring and management of resources. UP emphasizes equity, active participation of the community, and strong effective governance at all levels for sustaining the improved health outcomes. UP helped the Government of ndia refine the strategies and implement the existing Urban ealth component of the National ural ealth ission and the proposed National Urban ealth ission (NU). The program is funded by United States Agency for nternational Development (USAD), and supported by the Government of ndia. Population Foundation of ndia (PF) is the lead agency that coordinates nationally.this program is being implemented in eight states: ajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, adhya Pradesh, Odisha, Bihar and Uttarakhand and in five cities: Pune, Bhubaneswar, Jaipur, Delhi and Agra. mplementation partners include nstitute of ealth anagement esearch, Bhoruka Charitable Trust and Plan ndia. Technical partners include icro nsurance Academy, nternational nstitute for Population Sciences and the Centre for Development & Population Activities. UP program is being implemented by the ndian nstitute of ealth anagement esearch, Jaipur in two states, ajasthan and Chhattisgarh, and by Bhoruka Charitable Trust in Jaipur. 35

38 Objectives To Provide quality technical assistance to the Government of ndia, states and cities for effective implementation of the proposed National Urban ealth ission (NU) and ongoing Urban ealth component of the N; To expand partnerships in urban health including engaging the commercial sector in PPP activities; To promote the convergence of different Government of ndia s urban health and development efforts; To strengthen urban planning initiatives by the state through evidence-based city-level demonstration and learning efforts. Food Fortification Program The Food Fortification Program is being implemented by with the financial and technical support of Global Alliance for mproved Nutrition (GAN) in close partnership with the Government of ajasthan, which is already engaged in large scale production and supply of fortified wheat flour with iron through Public Distribution System (PDS). /GAN Food Fortification program is focused on the fortification of wheat flour with iron and edible oil with vitamin A & D through private commercial channels. The project is also working with ajasthan Dairy Federation Corporation to fortify milk with vitamin A & D on a large scale. icronutrient deficiencies due to lack of iron, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin D and iodine have received special attention in the recent past. Children, adolescents and pregnant/ lactating women are affected the most. icronutrient deficiencies result from inadequate dietary intake, poor absorption of nutrients, excessive losses, increased requirement or combination of these factors. The major forms of malnutrition worldwide are protein-energy malnutrition, and micronutrient malnutrition, such as iron deficiency anemia, vitamin A deficiency, and iodine deficiency disorder. These deficiencies negatively affect (i) child survival and growth, (ii) women s health and pregnancy outcomes, (iii) brain development and intelligence quotient (Q), (iv) educational achievement, (v) adult productivity/work capacity, and (vi) resistance to illness. Food fortification is a demonstrated and cost-effective way to ensure that a large number of those at risk of vitamin and mineral deficiencies receive the nutrients they need. GAN, which has already been funding 16 programmes in 14 countries, has started its first major project in ndia in ajasthan, named ntegrated Program Strategy. t basically intends to implement ntegrated Food Fortification Project for tackling micronutrient malnutrition. t will work with tri-sector partnership involving public, private and civil society sectors to jointly address the issue of malnutrition. Fortification requires a suitable food vehicle. There are populations that are hard to reach with commercial fortification, particularly those living in more remote geographic areas and not utilizing purchased foods. t is harder to reach the poorest who are the most price sensitive and who buy lower grade items that are less likely to be fortified, as shown clearly for iodized salt (UNCEF, 2004). Food fortification has already been undertaken in various parts of the world as well as in different states of the country. Sikkim, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat are a few of the states which have already exercised fortification. ajasthan Government is implementing a multi-department approach to address nutrition issues through social programs. Public Distribution System, ntegrated Child Development Services, ahatma Gandhi National ural Employment Guarantee Act and id- Day-eal are the main distribution channels. 36
