  • 4. Land & Poverty Summit
    28th September 2010
    Washington, D.C.
  • 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

    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
    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)

  • 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)
    Ecosystem Services
    Food for People
    Geographies of agricultural systems
