Information was obtained through the (i) the 'Progress of development projects and programmes as at 31st March 2018' Report published online by the Department of Project Management and Monitoring; (ii) the 'Financial progress as at end of March, 2018' document published online by the Ministry of Agriculture; and (iii)the Action Plan, Financial Plan and Progress Report received from the responsible agency in response to a request under the RTI Act. However the information received in response to the RTI request was insufficient to assess progress and was obtained after filing an appeal.
Some activities under the promise have been initiated. However, information on progress was only available for the first three months and was behind the target set for this time period. Based on the information, progress as at 31 March 2018 was 5%, compared to a target of 10%. Since progress could not be determined for the full period of assessment (January-June 2018), progress is assumed to be lagging.
