Our Studies

We take up studies, brief and quick assessment since we consider them as important and modern tool to advocate for required

changes. Pragati Abhiyan is conducting various studies to asses poverty and options for removing poverty.

These are some of the important social studies we are associated with –

 

In Association University of British Columbia of Vancouver, Canada, Pragati Abhiyan has undertaken a study entitled ‘Institutions and Social Capital in the Process of Development’. This research project aims to better understand the role of social capital in the process of development. Relative to the large recent literature focusing on the importance of institutions in determining development outcomes, there is little empirical literature aimed directly at measuring the role of social capital. The Survey involves collecting data from 9000 rural families across 300 villages of Maharashtra.

Pragati Abhiyan anchored a series of studies to strenghten MGNRGA in Maharashtra, independelty as well as with the Govrenment of Maharashtra. There are two set of questions that dominate the discourse of NREGA. One is obviously about leakages and corruption through ghost laborers’, fake musters and such; and the administrative inefficiencies of delay start of works, delayed payments and inadequate days of work made available. Another set of questions are pertaining to the effects problems in agricultural labor market in terms of wages, labor supply shortages and migration. The usefulness, relevance of assets has also been a concern voiced regularly by critiques. We look at these two set of issues as issues of Governance and Impact. The first set of questions is related to Governance and the other set of questions is about understanding impact. These studies are in process.
