  • Changing Global C ontext
    • Long period of neglect of agriculture
    • The shock of food price crisis
    • Pressing global food security, poverty and environmental agendas
    • Whole of the CGIAR was less than the sum of its parts
    • A revitalized and focused agenda will trigger increased investments
  • New Strategy and Results Framework (SRF) for system outcomes
      • Reduce rural poverty
      • Improve food security
      • Improve nutrition and health
      • Sustainably manage natural resources
  • New CGIAR structure
  • CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs)
    • Instruments for planning and conducting AR4D under SRF. Implemented by lead centre and a range of partners.
    • Built and measured on 3 core principles:
      • Impact on 4 system-level outcomes, ensuring consistency between SRF and CRP:
        • reduced rural poverty
        • improved food security
        • improved nutrition and health
        • sustainably managed natural resources
      • Integration across CGIAR core competencies, strengthening synergies and avoiding overlaps
      • Appropriate partnerships at all stages of impact pathways
  • CGIAR Strategy and Results Framework --the CGIAR research program portfolio-- Poverty alleviation; Food security; Nutrition & health; Sustainability & resilience
  • CRP 1.1 Integrated agricultural production systems for dry areas
    • Outputs: Improved technologies, policies and institutional arrangements that increase resilience, productivity and resource access by most vulnerable people
    • Outcomes: Innovation system approaches adopted; investments in drylands increased; small farms sustainably intensified and diversified; more equitable access to, and better management of, natural resources by women
  • CRP 1.1 Integrated agricultural production systems for dry areas
    • What: Sustainable, resilient and economically viable production systems that improve food security and livelihoods in drylands
    • How: Integrated solutions developed through breeding, soil management, etc... At farming systems levels
    • Who: More than 250 international, regional and national partners

    • What: By 2020, reduce poverty by 10%; lower number of malnourished rural people by 25% in targeted regions; reduce greenhouse gas emissions by equivalent to 1,000 million tons of CO 2
    • How: Adapt to, and o vercome, climate change threats to food security in vulnerable rural communities; i dentify and test pro-poor mitigation and adaptation policies and technologies
    • Who: More then 400 partners, including climate change research community
  • Partnerships are Imperative
