Evaluating the Impact of a Farm Ponds Program

This assessment will examine and document the impact of Deshpande Foundation’s ‘Farm Ponds’ program.

Background
Farmers in rain-fed areas face several challenges in raising their crops such as climate variability, crop failure and non-remunerative prices. To address these challenges, Deshpande Foundation has initiated a ‘Farm Pond’ program under which different sizes of farm ponds are constructed on farmers demand and based on their needs. This study will assess the impact of the program on beneficiaries, examine behavioral changes in participating households and communities, and identify strategies for scaling it up.
