CCAFS Theme 4.1 strategy: Linking Knowledge with Action CCAFS Theme 4.1 strategy: Linking Knowledge with Action Presentation Transcript

  • CRP7 - Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security
    Theme 4.1, Linking Knowledge with Action
    MT meeting, Bonn, June 2011
  • Theme 4.1 Linking Knowledge with Action Strategy
    ‘Efforts to mobilize science and technology for sustainability are more likely to be effective when they manage boundaries between knowledge and action in ways that simultaneously enhance the salience, credibility and legitimacy of the information they produce’ (Cash et al. 1990)
  • Linking K with A principles
    Its ‘with’ and not ‘to’ because it’s a 2-way link
    Focus on problem solving and involve users in problem definition and co-creation of solutions
    Practitioners and others as full partners (NGOs, Govt’s, communities, private sector)
    Need strategies, approaches to span boundaries between partners with very different incentives
    Build capacity to innovate, support institutional change
    Recognize and develop strategies to manage asymmetries of power and include marginalized groups
    Learning systems rather than knowledge systems
  • Linking K with A Strategies
    Engagement – CCAFS as a trusted partner
    Communication – more effective use of ICT’s, how best to communicate CC-Ag-FS issues at different levels and influence decision makers
    Capacity Building – CCAFS as an ‘incubator’
    Gender – targeted efforts and investments needed
    So, in a sentence:
    Theme 4.1’s strategy is to continue to test tools and approaches and learn and apply lessons in each of these areas, and to develop new joint action research with partners where there are gaps (e.g. communicating CC with smallholders).
  • Theme 4 Integration for Decision Making Impact Pathway
    CRP7 Impacts
    Outcomes
    Outputs
    Strategies
    • Policy champions
    • Building local, regional capacity for scenario and vulnerability assessments
    • Strategic policy-maker meetings
    • Future scenarios visualizations
    • Vulnerability maps and scenarios shared in blogs, briefs, presentations
    • Strategic private sector/comms partners
    • Local/regional partners invited to global events
    • Joint analyses, reviewers to local teams
    • Cross-site syntheses
    Regional and national CCAFS scenarios teams and other partners taking an active part in climate, agricultural development and food security policy processes in each region and at the global level
    Vulnerability maps
    Contribute to reducing poverty and increasing incomes
    Innovative approaches and regional expertise built to help decision makers explore future trajectories of change and plausible development pathways
    Improved, integrated tools and data for analyzing implications of human response to CC in terms of regional food security and sustainable agricultural systems, used for improved targeting of research
    Participatory site and partners selection and engagement
    Tools and data development and global, cross-CG and ESSP modeler engagement
    Contribute to a reduction in hunger, cutting the number of undernourished
    rural poor people
    Socioecon and environmental assessments/baselines for M&E at 36 CCAFS sites in 3 regions (>250 villages; >5,000 households)
    Assessments of impacts and policy / program options used in national and regional agricultural development and climate change strategies and dialogues
    Gender-responsive research on climate adaptation and mitigation priorities and capacity built in CCAFS regions
    IPCC assessments better incorporate agriculture in a way that demonstrates how smallholders can benefit from adaptation and mitigation actions
    Assist the ag. sector in meeting GHG targets to mitigate climate change
    Socially differentiated (e.g. gender) regional impact, adaptation and vulnerability assessments
    Policy briefs, Events, Engagement at COP17, UNFCCC
  • GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE (GEC) Change in type, frequency & magnitude of environmental threats + LOCAL CHANGES (land degradation, prices, pop’n growth, etc)
    GEC, ARIs, CG scientists
    Enhancing capacity to cope and adapt to changes
    AR4D researchers, NARES, govt’s, devel agencies, NGO’s, communities, etc
    Reducing exposure (mitigation) and sensitivity to change
    AR4D researchers (CG +NARS), devel agencies, NGOs, private sector, adopting groups, etc
    CCAFS: A learning system, spanning boundaries for enhanced food system resilience and food security
    SOCIETAL CHANGE: Changes in institutions, policies, practices
    Knowledge users, policymakers, private sector, regional orgs, communities, farmers groups, etc
    CCAFS as a learning system, with food security and boundary spanning central
  • GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE (GEC) Change in type, frequency & magnitude of environmental threats + LOCAL CHANGES (land degradation, prices, pop’n growth, etc)
    GEC, ARIs, CG scientists
    Reducing exposure (mitigation) and sensitivity to change
    AR4D researchers (CG +NARS), devel agencies, NGOs, private sector, adopting groups, etc
    Enhancing capacity to cope and adapt to changes
    AR4D researchers, NARES, govt’s, devel agencies, NGO’s, communities, etc
    SOCIETAL CHANGE: Changes in institutions, policies, practices
    Knowledge users, policymakers, private sector, regional orgs, communities, farmers groups, universities, NARES, etc
    A few CCAFS boundary-spanning examples: Local to national levels
    e.g. Nat’l Met Trainings
    e.g. PAR on C payments to smallholders (tools, syntheses, C measurements)
    e.g. farmer exp’t networks
    e.g. gender CC & CLIFF research grants, climate analogues
  • GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE (GEC) Change in type, frequency & magnitude of environmental threats + LOCAL CHANGES (land degradation, prices, pop’n growth, etc)
    GEC, ARIs, CG scientists
    Reducing exposure (mitigation) and sensitivity to change
    AR4D researchers (CG, NARS), devel agencies, NGOs, private sector,adopting groups, etc
    Enhancing capacity to cope and adapt to changes
    AR4D researchers, govt’s, devel agencies, NGO’s, communities, etc
    SOCIETAL CHANGE: Changes in institutions, policies, practices
    Knowledge users, policymakers, private sector, regional orgs, communities, farmers groups, universities, NARES, etc
    A few CCAFS boundary-spanning examples: Regionalto international levels
    e.g. regional scenarios
    e.g. Commission on Sust Ag & CC, ARDD, Ag-Clim letters
    e.g. vulnerability maps
    e.g. Futures fellows
