Preparatory Activities for the Supplementary Modular Surveys on Agriculture and Fisheries
In preparation for the conduct of "Supplementary Modular Surveys on Agriculture and Fisheries", a project management committee and task force was formed. Preparatory activities primarily focused on identifying the data items for the supplementary modules for irrigation and cropping pattern, livestock and poultry, fisheries, and aquaculture. Consultations with stakeholders and concerned agencies were conducted. Lists of data items, dummy tables, and questionnaires by module were revised. A user’s forum was also conducted before the finalization of data items. This paper presents in detail the activities undertaken by the Task Force in fulfillment of their functions as well as the issues and concerns identified during the activities.
