Back to Jabarrah

A closer look at the evolution of successful aquaculture self-help groups in rural West Bengal, the discovery of new uses for local resource systems and the energising effect of flexible rural credit.

In September 2003, members of the STREAM Initiative had the opportunity to return to Jabarrah, a rural village in West Bengal, India, where the DFID Eastern India Rainfed Farming Project (EIRFP) have been working with local communities for more than eight years, where DFID NRSP have been experimenting with integrated aquaculture and where STREAM recently filmed a case study as part of its project to promote pro-poor policy lessons.
