IWMI-CPWF - cpwf director's report

  1. 1. CPWF Science Progress Report May-October 2011 Alain Vidal, CPWF Director Larry Harrington, CPWF Research Director
  2. 2. Outline Early results and trends in our six basins Developing science and messages influencing the global agenda  Media outreach  Meta-synthesis Integration into CRP5 – JVA evolution
  3. 3. Six basins active Projects already started Inception workshop Oct 2011 Operational Operational Operational Operational 2 1
  4. 4. Research programs on BDCs Focus on a “basin development challenge” In a basin Coherent, integrated research program  Technologies, policies, institutions, governance  Whole basin consequences of change  Spatial targeting of innovations  Multiple partners  Evidence to inform dialogue/ innovation platforms
  5. 5. Andes system of basins Benefit-sharing mechanisms Upstream x downstream Externalities Generate more benefits and share them more equitably Foster evidence-based dialogue Evidence on hydrology, ecosystem services, investment opportunities, poverty
  6. 6. Ganges Freshwater storage Increase freshwater storage in Ganges delta’s polders Develop governance mechanisms for allocation of stored freshwater Use stored water to stabilize rainy season production intensify and diversify dry season production
  7. 7. Limpopo Rainwater management and value chains Strengthen agricultural value chains where market-related failures contribute to poverty Innovation platforms: stakeholders develop solutions for improved livelihoods Implications for water management, access, governa nce, infrastructure
  8. 8. Mekong Hydropower and livelihoods Improve how hydropower is designed, managed and operated Mitigate negative impacts and improve livelihoods Dialogue processes/multi- stakeholder platforms to monitor and apply research findings
  9. 9. Nile Rainwater management and landscapes Historical perspective on rainwater management Constraints to adoption, institutional arrangements, research gaps Fitting land and water management innovations to landscape niches Innovation platforms
  10. 10. Volta Rainwater and small reservoirs Hydrology, management, mult iple uses, health, policy and institutional aspects of rainwater and small reservoirs Capture common threads driving innovations across the basin, evaluate ecosystem services to enhance resilience, and analyze shaping of policies and institutions
  11. 11. Media Outreachfrom our Phase 1 science Joint IWMI-CPWF campaign for SWWW  Focused on IWMI-UNEP report “An Ecosystem Services Approach to Water and Food Security”  Good example of future IWMI-CPWF collaboration Campaign for IWRA Congress  Launching the Basin Focal Project Special Issue Journal series  “Water scarcity is not the only issue”: major impact with the media and on international events: Rome Sharefair, Bonn conference on water-energy-food nexus, WWF6 Marseilles, Rio+20 IFWF3 on 14-17 November 2011 And more - ARDD at COP17, Planet under Pressure conference London 2012, …
  12. 12. Meta-Synthesis
  13. 13. MS aims and process Pull together major findings from CPWF Phase 1 projects Place them in the context of findings from Basin Focal Projects and the Comprehensive Assessment Link them with the Phase 2 work program Process: guided by editorial team, aim to produce special issues of journals, book
  14. 14. Some areas emerging from MS Water scarcity: importance of quality, timing and access Water productivity:  Practical difficulties in increasing water productivity in rainfed areas  Using stored water for high value off-season production, importance of market value chains Tailoring land and water management practices to biophysical and socioeconomic “niches” Widespread use of principles of conservation agriculture Research evidence to inform dialogue, negotiation, policy, investment Added value from non-traditional partners
  15. 15. Integration into CRP5 - JVA Evolution Governance and management integration behind us JVA Evolution  CPWF AC wants to maintain partners’ ownership and CPWF mandate and vision while integrating into CRP5, and to identify ways of ensuring the impact of research-for-development with partners outside CRP5  JVA kept in force in its current form during transition period  As CRP5 starts, AC terminates the JVA and active members sign a CPWF Partnership Agreement with IWMI  CRP5 PIA (Program Implementation Agreement) refers to CPWF program and activities and to CPWF Partnership Agreement  CPWF Partnership Agreement placed under the oversight of the CRP5 Steering Committee
