Processes in the NBDC: People, platforms, innovation systems, networking, learning, pollicies, and institutions

  1. 1. Processes in the NBDC:People, platforms, innovation systems, networking, learning, policies, and institutions<br />Alan Duncan, Josie Tucker, Abeje Kessagne, Kees Swaans, Tilahun Amede, Berhanu Adenew<br />Nile Basin Development ChallengeScience and Reflection WorkshopAddis Ababa, 4-6 May 2011<br />
  2. 2. What’s coming up?<br /><ul><li>Planning, implementation and innovation related to rainwater management - what we've learned so far (Josie Tucker and Abeje Kessagne)
  3. 3. Innovation platforms - what we envisage for national and local platforms (Kees Swaans) Extra facilitator Jemimah Njuki
  4. 4. Linking innovation platforms with action to improve rainwater management - what mechanisms do we foresee? – (Alan Duncan)
  5. 5. Policy - how we can influence policy and what kind of evidence and communication strategies are needed? (Ranjitha Puskur and Berhanu Adenew) and Assefa Admassie?
  6. 6. Engagement with partners - how do we streamline, integrate, co-ordinate the engagement of the various NBDC projects with national research partners? (Tilahun Amede?)</li></li></ul><li>Process<br />Short presentations<br />Agree on discussion questions – short! Only refinement of questions allowed<br />Coffee<br />Peer assist discussion sessions – facilitator will seek help from table groups to deal with questions<br />Reporting back to video<br />Summing up<br />
  7. 7. Planning, implementation and innovation related to rainwater management - what we've learned so far (Josie)<br /><ul><li>How can NBDC support more flexible and participatory implementation of RWM, and support innovation, given that the planning process seems to be top-down and rigid?
  8. 8. How can CPWF take account of the rapidly changing situation in some woredas in its models?
  9. 9. How will CPWF deal with pressing local issues which may be outside the remit of RWM but which are likely to constrain adoption or benefits of RWM?</li></li></ul><li>Innovation platforms - what we envisage for national and local platforms (Kees) <br /><ul><li>How can we link activities and experiences from the local level with those of the national level and vice versa most effectively?
  10. 10. What do different projects in NBDC expect from the platforms at different levels and what and how can they contribute to it?
  11. 11. How do we measure the effectiveness of the platforms at different levels?
  12. 12. Mechanisms for sustainability</li></li></ul><li>Linking innovation platforms with action to improve rainwater management - what mechanisms do we foresee? – (Alan)<br />Who should facilitate such platforms?<br />Where will resources for any proposed actions come from?<br />Should we set out to establish IP’s around different themes e.g. “markets”, “NRM” etc<br />Or should we look at strategies to MAKE the link between NRM and markets at the local innovation platform? <br />How do you manage difference in power between different actors?<br />
  13. 13. Engagement with partners - how do we streamline, integrate, co-ordinate the engagement of the various NBDC projects with national research partners? (Tilahun)<br /><ul><li>What lessons have we learned so far about partnership building? What went well? What didn’t go well? What do partners want out of collaboration with NBDC? When to engage?
  14. 14. How should we identify partners? based on trust? competency? power balance? Resources? recognition for delivery? Who is joining who?
  15. 15. How do we organize our Nile projects in communicating with partners? Individual Ns? Demand-based? Through N5?
  16. 16. How do we best communicate with partners? What are the best channels for interacting with wider actors?</li></li></ul><li>Contributing to evidence-based policy making – (Ranjitha)<br />How do we ensure our evidence is credible, relevant. practical and operationally useful?<br />How and what kind of feedback processes and networks should we develop to communicate our messages?<br />What kind of communication vehicles would be most appropriate for communicating research to policy makers in the Ethiopian NBDC context?<br />How do we go about understanding policy better? Are we aware of key decision moments?<br />
