  9. 9. 4. Land & Poverty Summit<br />28th September 2010<br />Washington, D.C.<br />www.landandpoverty.com<br />
  10. 10. Today, geographic technology data and analysis are being applied to build a new understanding about creating the foundation for a sustainable society and economic growth. This understanding presents solutions to challenges such as recognizing the legal land rights of the poor, upgrading slums, making agriculture sustainable, and managing water.<br />
  11. 11. Dirt Poor: Seeking solutions to poverty from the ground up<br />This session highlights on-the-ground success stories from the CGIAR and its partners on land-based improvements in the well-being of the poor farm households as well as in the quality of the natural resources on which future rural livelihoods depend. A common feature of these successes is the growing reliance on geo-referenced information and location-specific analysis to improve the targeting, design, implementation, and evaluation of appropriate interventions. The presentations will showcase how improved insights into the spatial and socioeconomic contexts of land-related constraints and opportunities can help create solutions to poverty.<br />
  12. 12. 5. CSI as system repository/“auditors” of strategic CGIAR spatial data layers?<br />(e.g., poverty, farming systems, AEZs, market access, productivity)<br />

  18. 18. e – Atlas Opportunities<br />Subject of discussion at past 3-4 meetings!<br />Many relevant layers assembled as part of SRF<br />Very high potential for publishing as a CSI “hallmark” product<br />Need for (minimum required) levels of conceptual, methodological and cartographic rationalization and harmonization & METADATA<br />Also need for text for integration/value added<br />Opportunities for boxes/deep dives (Phase II?)<br />Several components: GIS data layers (and search/query/download functionality… much more possible at cost), PDF Atlas format, Tables for standard spatial aggregation units (AEZs. Farming Systems, Market Access..) … targeting GIS analyst, technical, planning, priority setting, education, advocacy audiences <br />Gloal (Developing world) and/or regional products<br />
