  • Why focus on Food securityAnd climate change has to be set in the context of growing populations and changing diets60-70% more food will be needed by 2050 because of population growth and changing diets – and this is in a context where climate change will make agriculture more difficult.

    1. 1. CCAFS: 2011 and beyond<br />Bruce Campbell<br />Program Director<br />CGIAR Research Program on <br />Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS)<br />
    2. 2. Improved<br />Environmental<br />Health<br />Trade-offs and synergies<br /> Climate Variability and Change<br />Technologies, practices, policies and capacity enhancement for: <br />Improved<br />Rural<br />Livelihoods<br />1. Adaptation to Progressive Climate Change<br />2. Adaptation through Managing Climate Risk<br />Improved<br />Food<br />Security<br />3. Pro-poor Climate Change Mitigation<br />4. Integration for Decision Making<br />Enhanced adaptive <br />capacity in agricultural,<br />NRM & food systems<br />

    7. 7. Regions<br /><ul><li>Indo-Gangetic Plains (Bangladesh, India, Nepal)
    8. 8. West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Ghana)
    9. 9. East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda)</li></ul>Pramod Aggarwal IWMI<br />Robert Zougmore ICRISAT<br />James Kinyangi ILRI<br />
    10. 10. New regions<br />2011: Process to select 2 new regions – based on criteria identified in Nairobi<br />2012: 2 new regions start<br />2012: Further process of selection<br />2013: Probably 3 further regions<br />
    11. 11. Coordination<br />CIAT Lead Centre<br />One dedicated manager (contracts, finances)<br />Most of coordinating unit stays in Copenhagen<br />Director (1)<br />Research coordination (1)<br />Communications and outreach (1 +2)<br />Themes and Regions run through Centers/Partners<br />
    12. 12. Independent Science Panel<br />9 members independent of CRP7<br />Selected by CGIAR & ESSP<br />Responsible for programmatic choices and budget allocation<br />3 observers: CGIAR, ESSP, CIAT<br />
    13. 13. Communications<br /><ul><li>Expect centers/partners to devote resources to communicating CCAFS
    14. 14. Example of Cancun (CIAT, IFPRI, ILRI, ICRAF, Fund Office) </li></li></ul><li>Reporting<br />Simple reporting, from all centers according to overall logframe<br />But need responsiveness from Centers<br />
    15. 15. Strategic directions<br />Will have to streamline and get all pieces in alignment by Year 3<br />Please use CRP7 proposal, so that Centers get aligned on common direction<br />Get “buy in” from Theme Leaders/Regional Facilitators to grant applications<br />
    16. 16. Next steps<br />Starts January 1st – e.g. CIAT already hiring<br />CP structure remain for 6 months<br />Strategy discussion with ISP – April<br />ESSP-CGIAR Science and planning meetings – June<br />Workplan 2012 discussed at Nov ISP meeting<br />
    17. 17. Need quick wins to demonstrate working across centers <br />“If inter-centre collaboration is not sorted out in three years we will remove our funding from the CGIAR”<br />Some major products needed that show synergies of working across sectors<br />
    18. 18. Main proposed global activities for 2011<br />International Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change (Chair: Sir John Beddington)<br />High-level report on CC & Agriculture (with two sessions with negotiators) – process by Meridian Institute<br />Agriculture and Rural Development Day 2011 (ARDD 2011), Durban, December<br />Similar major activities in the regions…….. <br />
