Services[ edit ] The services sector is by far the most important sector in the European Union, making up Companies have a greater reliance on bank lending than in the United States, although a shift towards companies raising more funding through capital markets is planned through the Capital Markets Union initiative, the EU plan put forward by the Commission in September to mobilise the free movement of capital within the EU. London is also a leading international centre for professional services which are sold to clients across the EU. This is criticised as a form of protectionisminhibiting trade, and damaging developing countries ; one of the most vocal opponents is the UK, the second largest economy within the bloc, which has repeatedly refused to give up the annual UK rebate unless the CAP undergoes significant reform; France, the biggest beneficiary of the CAP and the bloc's third largest economy, is its most vocal proponent.
The aim is to improve the potential of local goats by cross-breeding them with Galla type and Toggenbergs. Often living beyond the reach of government services, rural families are left without clean drinking water, weak village infrastructure and limited access to basic education and healthcare.
In addition, geographical and climatic characteristics leave them to cope with drought, dependent on degraded natural resources for survival.
This has created living conditions that are particularly detrimental as the majority of residents are small scale farmers who depend on agriculture as their sole source of food and income. To support MPHC, CRSP implemented interventions that, by stimulating economic and social development, contributed to sustainable and equitable improvements in the livelihoods of poor households in Coast Province.
This is because communities see CRSP as providing a hand up, not a hand out, in the process of improving their livelihoods. With assistance from CRSP, farmers have introduced water harvesting to support production of bananas, oignons, tomatoes, kales, ochra and eggplants, and as a result have developed four farm reservoirs on a cost-sharing basis.
As a result, all of its work in each of its four sectors begins with the establishment of relationships and partnerships at the community level, with community based organisations called Village Development Organisations VDOs.
VDOs provide community members with a forum and tools to discuss, chart and implement a plan for the future of their village. Although most villages have existing structures for making decisions, they are often not recognised by outsiders as formal organisations with the ability to interact with government.
This lack of voice, coupled with the structure of government decision making, which gives priority to interests at the divisional rather than community level, means that individual villages are often unable to voice concerns about their development. CRSP provides VDOs with training on governance, organisational development, participatory monitoring and evaluation, and record keeping.
Prepared with these skills, VDOs are then assisted to register as formal organisations with the government. CRSP also links together VDOs from the same districts, to form Supra Organisations, which collaborate and interact with government officials beyond the divisional level.
These Supra Organisations are able to demonstrate competency in management, group leadership and project organisation. A key result of the Social Organising process is the institutionalisation of a community based planning process in which villages prepare community development plans which they are then able to forward to government departments or other organisations for planning and funding support.
Each component engages poor households in small-scale enterprises intended to generate income and improve livelihoods.
The process begins when communities identify what resources they feel they possess, the start-up investment that would be required for a small enterprise and the hours of labour that would be required to run the enterprise.
They then determine which, if any, enterprise they would want to engage in. CRSP supports these enterprises by training para-professionals who train community members on bee-keeping and honey production, and assist with the management and harvesting of hives.
CRSP also carries out market assessments and has brokered contracts that have guaranteed villages a competitive market for their honey for a number of years.
As a result, 60 VDOs have identified their communities as good candidates for poultry enterprises. CAFAs teach community members how to control diseases common to poultry, how to build pens and how to create an environment that promotes reproduction.
CAFAs also work with communities that have identified goat rearing as a profitable enterprise. Vocational Training To diversify enterprise activities and increase employment opportunities, CRSP supports vocational training for youth.
Youth have been trained in areas such as shoe making, automobile mechanics, barber, carpentry, dress making, electronics, food production, hair dressing, mobile phone repair, patient care and first aid, screen printing and tailoring.
CRSP encourages youth who have received training to start up their own enterprises and links them with microfinance institutions and mentors for support.
SWASIP also enhances community capacity to manage and utilise water resources and assists with the mobilisation, training and enabling of local organisations in 83 villages to administer, operate and maintain water supply and sanitation infrastructure. This initiative helps communities to identify and change unhealthy sanitation behaviour, specifically open defecation, and leads them to construct and use latrines from locally available materials.
The support and guidance that CRSP and EMACK offer local pre-schools to accomplish these improvements is centred upon the Whole School Approach, a development model which believes that quality education depends upon community engagement and ownership.
The centre will have 15 computers to be used by farmers to access market prices and devolved funding, by youth for computer skills training and by community members to access CRSP documentation.
These are promoted at the household and group level.
Through field farm schools, farmers are trained on how to prepare the land, plant the crops, carry out weeding, pest and diseases control and harvesting and storage. CRSP also assists in vegetable production through kitchen gardens located at the household level and at small farm reservoir water sites.
The main aim is to produce food for household consumption with surplus vegetables sold in markets.
