Aquatic agriculture systems crp 1.3

  1. 1. Aquatic Agriculture Systems CRP GBDC Reflection Workshop 12 November 2013
  2. 2. CRP-Project programmatic framework efforts Andrew CRP
  3. 3. Our Journey Ahead
  4. 4. Our Destination !!!
  5. 5. What’s happening in the Hub • • • • • Farmers engaged in research (seeds quality, horticulture, fish, fodder) “Even if there is no WorldFish here tomorrow, I’ll remain a farmer researcher and keep on experimenting in my plot!” Farmer, Satkira Establishment Research Support Teams “The concept gives [farmers] an opportunity to justify the research results, to take decision by themselves, to identify the problems and to find out the probable solutions …. this activity for one season or even for one year is not enough for harvesting the full advantages of the program..” Dr. Proshanta, BARI Efforts to harmonize the bilateral WorldFish programs and the AAS framework. This has been a continuous effort to date, with numerous alignment meetings and collaborative workshops. Initiation of integrated and coordinated programs of work led by IWMI and Bioversity as well as other researcher –led work (ponds, VC, sorjan, habitats) Considerable efforts on capacity development on PAR.
  6. 6. What are we most satisfied with? • • • • The program of research in the communities has been initiated and growing (horticulture, seeds, ponds, livestock fodder) The impact pathways articulated in our ToC are beginning to materialize (gender norm conversations; capacities of farmers to access and do research; private sector systems recognizing women as a viable market) We have in place a team of people who are capable of delivering the program (new addition of research coordinator) Growing Partnerships
  7. 7. FARMER RESEARCHERS
  8. 8. Link to Development Outcomes • Articulating the impact pathways in AAS: understand “how” it can be done • Working towards a common understanding of how AAS provides a coherent framework that ties together WorldFish programs of work • Partnerships for scale
  9. 9. What are our current key challenges? 1. Ensuring high quality documentation of the learning agendas in the R&D work 2. Expanding and improving the quality of partnerships (and scaling mechanisms) 3. Establishment of a coherent WorldFish program of work that incorporates our extensive bilateral-funded portfolio into a CRP framework
  10. 10. What are our priorities for 2014? • Creating a coherent WorldFish program of work that embraces the conceptual framework of the AAS and other CRPs • Enhanced capacity to implement high quality R&D at community level and creating specific linkages to research at a systems level • Expanding and improving the quality of partnerships with Government, NGOs, Private Sector and CGIAR partners • Understanding and developing specific strategies that can scale the R&D work led by communities and supported by local scientists • Establishing an effective KSL including M&E System

  14. 14. THANK YOU
  15. 15. Khulna Hub Development Challenge We seek positive transformational change in the lives and livelihoods of poor AAS-dependent farmers and their communities, particularly women and youth. We strive for empowered communities that lead in the innovation and adoption of more productive, diversified and resilient practices and technologies and demand a more equitable role in the management of natural resources. With this enhanced capacity and leadership they will make more effective use of water, land and biodiversity resources, better access information and markets and continually adapt to a dynamic Khulna floodplain system.
