Transcript

  • 1. CRP7: Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security
  • 2. Scope for CRP7
  • 3. Objectives
    • The overarching objectives of MP7 are:
    • To identify and develop pro-poor adaptation and mitigation practices, technologies and policies for food systems, adaptive capacity and rural livelihoods.
    • To provide diagnosis and analysis that will ensure the inclusion of agriculture in climate change policies, and the inclusion of climate issues in agricultural policies, from the sub-national to the global level in a way that brings benefits to the rural poor.
  • 4. Outcomes
    • Theme 1: Adaptation to Climate Change
    • Outcome 1.1: Agricultural and food security strategies that are adapted towards conditions of predicted climate change promoted by the key development and funding agencies (national and international), civil society organizations and private sector in at least 20 countries.
    • Outcome 1.2: Strategies for addressing abiotic and biotic stresses induced by future climate change, variability and extremes, including novel climates mainstreamed among more than 75% of the international research agencies, and by national agencies in at least 12 countries.
    • Outcome 1.3: Portfolio of information sources, guidelines and germplasm available for using genetic and species diversity to enhance adaptation and resilience to changing climate are adopted and up‐scaled by national agencies in at least 20 countries and by international organization for the benefits of resource poor farmers.
  • 5. Outcomes
    • Theme 2: Adaptation Pathways for Current Climate Risk
    • Outcome 2.1: Systematic technical and policy support for farmer to community level agricultural risk management strategies that buffer against climate shocks and enhance livelihood resilience in at least 20 countries.
    • Outcome 2.2: Better climate informed management by key international, regional and national agencies of food crisis response, post‐crisis recovery, and food trade and delivery in at least 12 countries.
    • Outcome 2.3 Enhanced uptake and use of improved climate information products and services, and of information about agricultural production and biological threats, by resource poor farmers, particularly vulnerable groups and women, in at least 12 countries.
  • 6. Outcomes
    • Theme 3: Pro-Poor Climate Change Mitigation
    • Outcome 3.1: Enhanced knowledge about agricultural investments that leads to better decisions for climate mitigation, poverty alleviation, food security and environmental heath, used by national agencies in at least 20 countries.
    • Outcome 3.2: Improved knowledge and tools to support carbon market development to be used by buyers, sellers (including farmers’ organizations) and intermediaries for crop‐soil management, agroforestry, coastal and irrigated rice systems in at least 20 countries.
    • Outcome 3.3: Key agencies dealing with climate mitigation in at least 20 countries promoting new institutional arrangements and incentive systems that favor resource‐poor farmers, particularly vulnerable groups and women.
  • 7. Outcomes
    • Theme 4: Integration for Decision Making
    • Outcome 4.1: Appropriate adaptation and mitigation strategies mainstreamed into national policies in at least 20 countries, in the development plans of at least five economic areas (e.g. ECOWAS, EAC, South Asia) covering each of the targeted regions, and in the key global processes related to food security and climate change.
    • Outcome 4.2 Improved frameworks, databases and methods for planning responses to climate change used by national agencies in at least 20 countries and by at least 15 key international and regional agencies.
    • Outcome 4.3 New knowledge on how alternative policy and program options impact agriculture and food security under climate change incorporated into strategy development by national agencies in at least 20 countries and by at least 15 key international and regional agencies.
  • 8. Partners
    • CCAFS, Bioversity, CIAT, CIMMYT, CIP, ICARDA, ICRAF, ICRISAT, IFPRI, IITA, ILRI, IRRI, IWMI, WorldFish, University of Columbia, University of Vermont, University of Leeds and Secretariat at University of Copenhagen
