    • LIVELIHOODS RESILIENCE TOOLKIT : UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT AND APPLYING IT IN THE FIELD Easily accessible practical guide for communities, local authorities and other stakeholders to strengthen livelihoods and secure them against external threats. Contact: Julien JACOB jjacob@achesp.org IFPRI - Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security 2014 Based on DIPECHO- funded ACF work in South Caucasus Capacity building in Disaster Risk Reduction through a participatory, context- specific livelihood resilience approach Results achieved in the project:  Built 11 small scale mitigation measures/structures  Implemented 35 livelihoods resilience projects with new techniques  Helped establish DRR groups in communities, build their capacity and facilitate action plans “Analyzing your own capacity, or that of your community, allows you to address your vulnerabilities and reduce risks through building resilience, all according to your own priorities and those of your community through direct involvement”.
    • Association of International Research and Development Centers for Agriculture Our contribution to resilient agriculture: Healthy, climate smart landscapes for improved livelihoods and food security • A newly-formed alliance with 9 founding members • over 60 member countries, > 70% of world population • On-going Research and Development activities in all major geographic regions & ecosystem types Members: Contact: www.airca.org
    • PREPAREDNESS MITIGATIONRESILIENCE Contact: Aurelie Carmeille dcdp@et.missions-acf.org Building resilience to drought of pastoralists and agro-pastoralists communities in Borana through integrated approach - Ethiopia PROMOTION OF CULTURE OF SAFETY - Risk, Vulnerability and Capacities Analysis - Community Planning - Risk Awareness campaign - Surveillance and Early Warning System - Capacity Building & Partnership INTEGRATED APPROACH - Food security and Livelihoods Rangeland management, Asset building, Drought resistant crop farming, Milk marketing - Access to Water for human & livestock - Nutrition and Health: Link for malnutrition treatment, cooking demonstration, and care practices IMPACTS - Increased awareness on risk management - Increased Food security and Nutritional status - Increased households assets - Reduced diseases occurrence IFPRI - Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security 2014
    • Building resilience for food and nutrition security through water and soil conservation practices Activity: Prevention and adaptation to climate change Location: Gnagna Province (Burkina-Faso) Donor: EuropeAid  Soil restoration using conservation agriculture practices  Irrigated agriculture to promote crop diversification  Farmers access to inputs (seeds, organic fertilizers, etc.)  Design of farm sites for vegetable and rice production  Tree planting or assisted natural regeneration  Building of granary adapted to local conditions  Supporting livestock development for 500 vulnerable households  Development of risk management plans at community level IFPRI - Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security 2014Contact: Bader Mahaman bmahaman@actioncontrelafaim.org
    • Risk-based approach to improve food safety in informal markets What we have learned so far • Informal markets are highly preferred • Food safety matters to poor consumers • Hazards don’t always matter, but risks do • Perception is a poor guide for risk managers • Draconian food safety policy makes things worse • Values and cultures are more important drivers of food safety than pathogens • Food-borne risk is a fixable problem Why informal markets matter • Most of the meat, milk, eggs and fish produced in developing countries is sold in traditional markets • Food-borne illness and animal disease in informal markets are of growing concern to consumers and policymakers alike ILRI projects on food safety in informal markets use a risk-based approach to generate evidence of the risk to human health posed by informally marketed foods and the best way to manage risks while retaining benefits Contact Dr. Delia Grace, ILRI at d.grace@cgiar.org or visit website: http://safefoodfairfood.wordpress.com
    • Market systems Resilience is the capacity of the market system to mitigate, adapt to and recover from stressors and shocks without compromising long-term competitiveness. It requires three capacities… Absorptive capacity to cope, Adaptive capacity to learn and adjust, Transformative capacity to fundamentally alter the system. Why market systems resilience matters… Linking people and households to markets builds resilience by increasing incomes and assets, increasing food availability and reducing risk through diversification. The resilience of the market system itself is also important to ensuring the economic well-being of households and communities. The USAID-funded Leveraging Economic Opportunities program is working to define and identify best practices in market systems resilience. The program is implemented by ACDI/VOCA.

    • Operationalizing sustainability: joining resilience/vulnerability & adaptability in agricultural systems analysis • Resilience, vulnerability and adaptability are dominant concepts for the study of disturbance and change (Fig 1) • Thus targeting problem-solving implementation, their conceptual and operational integration could lead to more accurate portrayal of agricultural systems • This should base on the dynamic interaction between resilience and vulnerability and the resulting adaptability along a time line (Fig 2) Daniel Callo-Concha* and Frank Ewert Fig 2. Agricultural system (S) overall adaptability (A) as function of the interaction of resilience (R) and vulnerability (V) across time (t); feedback loops (dashed lines). Fig.1.

Center for Development Research (ZEF), University of Bonn. Walter-Flex-Str. 3, 53113, Bonn, Germany • Despite conceptual and semantic differences, meta-analysis of scientific publications show fuzzy conceptual differentiation and great methodological overlapping
    • Bringing food system resilience into policy design www.sae.ethz.ch → Research → Food systems danielle.tendall@usys.ethz.ch New research project at ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute for Technology)
    • A biomass-based value web as analytic approach to optimize the agricultural sector’s efficiency and resilience Interactions, trade-offs & synergies in a biomass-based value web (schematic) • Rising demand for food and non-food biomass transforms agriculture from a food to a biomass-supplying sector. • The conventional (isolated) value-chain approach is no longer sufficient. • The biomass-based value web as an analytic approach is instrumental: • to analyze the complex system from biomass production to final consumption; • to explore synergies and identify inefficiencies in the entire biomass sector; • to increase the sector’s efficiency and to pinpoint potential of resilience. Detlef Virchow, Manfred Denich, Arnim Kuhn, Tina Beuchelt; University of Bonn; www.biomassweb.org

    • Creating Resilience through Index Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) INSIGHTS FROM ETHIOPIA Index Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) o Designed to protect pastoralist against drought-related livestock losses o Contract holders receive payouts when forage condition deteriorates blow a certain historical level o Payouts are calculated automatically and there are no claims to file - hence solving issues of moral hazard and adverse selection. How the Index Works o Index is calculated using a measure of pasture availability recorded by satellites, called the Normalized Differenced Vegetation Index (NDVI). o Pastoralists purchase an annual contract with possibility of payout in either March or October o Payouts are made when the forage situation is below the worst 15 percentile Motivation o Drought is a covariate shock that erodes livestock assets making households fall into a poverty trap o Poor pastoralists have few available strategies to manage and cope with livestock mortality risk o Over 300,000 livestock deaths recorded due to drought in the Borana region, which is estimated at US$ 85 million as of July 2011 o Lack of credit and insurance markets in infrastructure-deficit environments has rendered traditional risk sharing arrangements weakened and insufficient Motivation o Failure of governments and international aid agencies in delivering timely and adequate relief to prevent adverse impact of drought o Hence the effort to developing risk management instruments that are both feasible, commercially viable and potentially effective in reducing poor pastoralists’ uninsured risk exposure Further information: Key Activities in Ethiopia o Contract designing and index development by ILRI and Cornel University o Manuals and education material created for all stakeholders involved in the implementation process o Dissemination of product information through workshops and training programmes o Cross-border trips of elders of four ethnic groups to Marsabit for product- awareness creation o Oromia Insurance Company sc. (OIC) has been the underwriting partner o Launch of sales in collaboration with OIC, regional government Borana zone, ILRI and Cornell University o 405 policies have been sold through local MFIs and co-operatives acting as distribution channels in the January/February 2014 sales window o Further identification of innovative distribution channels and extension methods are underway to scale up the process of IBLI uptake Green Good forage availability that represents above 65 percentile over a long period. This is above normal and stable forage condition. Yellow Forage condition falls between 45 to 65 percentiles. The forage situation is positive but consistently worsening. Orange Forage condition is between 30 and 45 percentile. The division in question is under considerable stress but not yet serious. Red Forage condition is between 15 – 30 percentiles. Drought situation is serious but not yet classified as severe. Indemnity payout will not be triggered. Black Severe drought condition. Forage condition represents worst 15 percentile. Indemnity payout will be triggered if conditions persist throughout the season up to the potential payout period. March 2009Oct 2009 Key Collaborators March 2014

    • The Government of Ethiopia (GoE) has projected a goal scenario of 10 percent stunting and 5 percent malnutrition levels by 2025. In order to reach this goal, the GoE will need to increase their current decline from 1.5 percent to 2.3 percent annually. Stunting Malnutrition: Opportunities for the Productive Safety Net Programme Johanna Wilkes Wilfrid Laurier University, Balsillie School of International Affairs Questions? Contact Johanna via email at: jwilkes@balsillieschool.caThank you to Dr. Terrence Levesque for his guidance and support. 1.) Increase flexibility of targeting to incorporate early adopters in the agriculture sector •PSNP adheres to national standards focusing on chronically hungry households, ignoring the possible early adopters of agricultural technology Recommendations for Increased Impact of PSNP*: 2.) Continue targeting away from harvest and planting season to prevent workforce diversion •Notice the upward trend leading into both the ‘meher’ and ‘belg’ harvest seasons 3.) Make distribution decisions a local matter •Based on the barrier to food security, communities may use cash or food for more effective nutritional interventions * PSNP: the Productive Safety Net Programme
    • The challenges: • Kenya’s semi-arid lands experience low, erratic rainfall • Rising population is leading to: - smaller farm sizes; water, tree cover and land degradation; and lower crop yields • Reduced productivity from: -price distortions, ineffective land distribution and unfavourable land tenure • Poor innovation adoption among smallholder farmers • Exclusion of smallholder farmers from policy-making forums KARI-McGill Food Security Research Project Innovating for resilient farming systems Goal: To develop innovative strategies for accelerating large- scale adoption and scaling-up of resilient farming systems The project aims to: • Understand traditional food and indigenous knowledge systems • Identify gendered drivers of food insecurity • Catalyze adoption of agricultural innovations and assess their impacts • Assess mechanisms of up-scaling resilient farming practices • Increase access to and consumption of nutritional, locally- produced foods • Enhance access to local markets and diversify household livelihoods • Contribute to resilience-focused policies and knowledge dissemination for improved food security, livelihoods and environmental sustainability across the semi-arid regions How we work: • 54 primary farmer groups and 133 active secondary farmer groups organized to conduct evaluative farm trials through experiential and peer-to-peer learning • Farmers prioritized innovations to guide research and training • Over 5500 farmers trained in activities about agricultural and livestock practices, nutrition, seed production and access to produce markets • Changes in farmers’ participation, knowledge and practices are monitored by the research teams • Findings are integrated among multiple stakeholders to examine how to better inform policy development processes karimcgill-foodsecurity.org Principal Investigators: Dr. Lutta Mohammad, KARI Dr. Gordon Hickey, McGill University Photos: IDRC/PANOS, Sven Torfinn

Long-term malnutrition remains challenging:  Underweight and wasting rates (indicating short-term nutrition issues) fall below 8%.  The stunting rate of children under five (indicating long-term malnutrition) was over 25%. 92 110 126 111 68 60 62 62 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 Chronic Transient Non poor All Energy Protein Ca VA VB2
    • Community Vulnerability Assessments (PRAs; Vegetation and Land cover Mapping) Develop Local Adaptation Plan of Action Implement Adaptation Strategies (e.g. On Farm Trials, evaluation of resilient crop varieties, etc.) Evaluation of Performance of Adaptation Strategies (Impact Assessments) Enhancing Climate Change Resilience of Food Production Systems in Pacific Islands The Pacific Islands Communities is highly vulnerable to impacts of climate change. The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), through funding support from USAID, is collaborating with other partner agencies to evaluate and implement innovative techniques and management approaches to increase climate change resilience of land-based food production systems for communities in the Pacific Islands. The activities involved in the process is as shown below:
    • Empowers communities with knowledge and skills on DRR and Climate Change Adaptation approaches in the implementation of the plans. E-LEAP: Strengthening Intergenerational Linkages to Increase Resilience and Reduce Vulnerability in Borena Zone, Ethiopia Supports the development and promotion of intergenerational practice as a catalyst for effective DRM at community level.
    • FOOD SECURITY PORTAL Improving Resilience to Food Price Shocks Regional warning systems are being built to cover food price volatility in India, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Africa South of the Sahara. The Food Security Portal’s Excessive Variability Early Warning System helps global policymakers react in a timely, appropriate manner to volatile food prices, increasing countries’ resilience against food price spikes and reactionary food trade policies like export bans.
