    1. 1. Introducing the Technical Consortium (TC) for Building Resilience to Drought in the Horn of Africa Global Alliance on Drought Resilience and Growth visit to Ethiopia 5 November, 2012 Polly Ericksen, Mohamed Manssouri, Katie Downie
    2. 2. What is the Technical Consortium?• A joint CGIAR/FAO initiative, with ILRI representing the CGIAR Centres and the FAO Investment Centre representing FAO• ILRI hosts the Coordinator on behalf of the CGIAR• Funded initially by USAID for 18 months – this is envisioned as a longer term initiative, complementing the implementation of investment plans in the region and harnessing, developing and applying innovation and research to enhance resilience
    3. 3. An innovative partnership linking demand-driven research sustainable action for development
    4. 4. What is the purpose of the Technical Consortium?• To provide technical and analytical support to IGAD and its member countries to design and implement the CPPs and the RPF, within the scope of the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI)• To provide support to IGAD and its member countries to develop regional and national resilience-enhancing investment programmes for the long term development of ASALs• To harness CGIAR research, FAO and others’ knowledge on drought resilience and bring it to bear on investments and policies 4
    5. 5. What has the Technical Consortium done to date?• Produced a series of Technical Briefs on 6 key thematic areas (NRM, market access and trade, livelihoods support and safety nets, DRR, Conflict resolution and peace building, research and knowledge management)• Assisted regional (IGAD) government in the development of Country Programming Papers along a common framework involving quality reviews and peer learning between countries• Supporting IGAD in the development of the IGAD Regional Programming Framework• Involved the research community and other actors (NGOs, NSAs, governments) in the development of Concept Notes designed to bring innovative research (both refining existing appropriately and new) to the investment agenda 5
    6. 6. Next Steps (next 8 months)• Assist countries and DPs translating their CPPs into investment programmes/projects• Develop an M&E framework for resilience enhancement in the drylands• Develop a framework for evaluating returns to investments in resilience• Initiate a knowledge /research agenda for the drylands• Map contributions from CGIAR CRPs• Document the learning emanating from TC mechanism 6
    7. 7. Longer term perspective• Acting as a flexible R&D facility for supporting drought resilience• Develop a knowledge agenda to be rolled out along the CPPs and the RPF during implementation including research, innovation, scaling up and learning: – M&E, learning and impact assessment to inform action and measure results – Guidance for (responsible) investments in drylands and pastoral development – Scouting for innovations, good practice for scaling up, policy change and investment – Learning from failures – Strengthening the nascent Research-Action and learning network (see following slide)• Strengthen the regional dimension through the Regional Platform by promoting peer-learning between across countries, regions, etc.• Develop specific knowledge sharing and learning practices for knowledge to bear more on action (joint missions between researchers and developers, structured learning, valuing local knowledge)• Provide Technical Assistance to support effective policies and investments throughout the implementation of the CPPs and RPF, in order to provide for focus, consistency and learning
