2.3 DIRECT ACTIONS IN COMMUNITIES

2.3.3. Information Technology (IT) and enhancing of livelihoods of people dependent on the IE

Recommendation: 1. Assess the availability of the needed technical infrastructure when designing projects that will use IT to enhance/affect livelihoods of people dependent on the IE. (While this appears a straight forward consideration, this is not always sufficiently considered.

Reference: Faizul, Kabir; Kabir, Golam, 2015, Digital Early Warning Systems to Save the Lives and Livelihoods of Communities of Bangladesh (DEWS), Final evaluation, Dhaka.  

Evidence sample: The evaluation found that there was no technical feasibility assessment of the project prior to inception. This would have been useful, especially for the technical aspect of the project. The project did not sufficiently consider the need for a good mobile network coverage that would have made the early warning system mechanism more effective. Increasing the network coverage is essential for optimum benefit of the digital technology by the poor and vulnerable fishermen.
