4. Land & Poverty Summit 28th September 2010 Washington, D.C. www.landandpoverty.com
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.
Dirt Poor: Seeking solutions to poverty from the ground up 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.
5. CSI as system repository/“auditors” of strategic CGIAR spatial data layers? (e.g., poverty, farming systems, AEZs, market access, productivity)
6. CSI ownership/development of sub-national poverty map Stan, Glenn, Andy, Kai
Poverty Map Contributors (Goal: Mapping $1.25 & $2/day ($PPP 2005). First or second sub-national admin level for “large” poverty & agriculture countries. Mapping both incidence and absolute number of poor) CIESIN (CGIAR/CSI Poverty Mapping Project) Brazil, Bangaldesh, Malawi, Kenya, Ecuador UweDeichmann, World Bank DECRG China, Chile, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Russia + $ Africa Julio Berdegue (LAC, 2009 study completion) Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Colombia Harold Coulomb/Quentin Wodley (West Africa, 2007 4study completion) Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Ghana Peter Lanjouw – India CIAT – Mexico, Ecuador IFPRI (DSG/EPT) (SSA 6-8 countries) (GauravDatt/Chinese collaborators) (WB, 2009) – China From 186 to > 24,000 data points
Prototype Sub-national Poverty Map Absolute number of poor circa 2005 (based on international poverty line of $1.25/day in $PPP 2005 units)
7. CSI Agricultural (Research &) Development e-Atlas?
e – Atlas Opportunities Subject of discussion at past 3-4 meetings! Many relevant layers assembled as part of SRF Very high potential for publishing as a CSI “hallmark” product Need for (minimum required) levels of conceptual, methodological and cartographic rationalization and harmonization & METADATA Also need for text for integration/value added Opportunities for boxes/deep dives (Phase II?) 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 Gloal (Developing world) and/or regional products
The CGIAR Vision Statement Defines the Foci for Geographic Examination CGIAR Vision To reduce poverty and hunger, improve human health and nutrition, and enhance ecosystem resilience through high-quality international agricultural research, partnership, and leadership. Improved Welfare, Reduced Vulnerability & Enhanced Gender Equity Sustainable Resource Utilization & Enhanced Ecosystem Services Agricultural Development Challenges & Opportunities Drivers of Change (including more effective agricultural R4D)
Focal Themes and Diagnostic Indicators for CGIAR Strategic Geographic Screening Improved Human Welfare Poverty ($1.25, $2PPP/day) Hunger (GHI) Health/Nutrition (DALYs) (Gender Disparities) Drivers of Change (exogenous) Population/Demand growth Climate change Agricultural Development Challenges & Opportunities Cropland Grazing/Pasture land Inland/coastal water bodies Forests Markets/infrastructure Sustainable Resources & ES Water stress Land degradation Biodiversity loss GHG emissions Drivers of Change: Research for Development CGIAR & Partner Portfolio of MPs
CGIAR Wide* Strategic Domains In 4 Geographies Indicators mapped and overlaid in pixel or polygon formats Improved Welfare & Reduced Vulnerability Development Domains (short-medium term conditioning factors for agriculture based development) Enhanced Ecosystem Services Food for People Geographies of agricultural systems Environment for People Geographies of ecosystems and ecosystem services Policies for People Geographies of national, and regional policy space Ag. Development Challenges & Opportunities Drivers of Change * More specific domain representation will be appropriate as individual MegaProjects are proposed for further evaluation
