Transcript

  • 1. CCAFS: An Overview and <br />Regional Engagement Strategy<br />
  • 2. CCAFS: the partnership<br />The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is a strategic collaboration between the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) andtheEarth System Science Partnership (ESSP). <br />
  • 3. CCAFS <br />Objectives<br />Identify and develop pro-poor adaptation and mitigation practices, technologies and policies for agriculture and food systems.<br />Support the inclusion of agricultural issues in climate change policies, and of climate issues inagricultural policies, at all levels.<br />
  • 4. The CCAFS Framework:<br />Research Themes, Outputs, and Impacts<br />Adapting Agriculture to<br />Climate Variability and Change<br />Technologies, practices, partnerships and policies for:<br />Adaptation to Progressive Climate Change<br />Adaptation through Managing Climate Risk<br />Pro-poor Climate Change Mitigation<br />Improved Environmental Health<br />Improved Rural Livelihoods<br />Improved Food Security<br />Trade-offs and Synergies<br />4. Integration for Decision Making<br /><ul><li>Linking Knowledge with Action
  • 5. Assembling Data and Tools for Analysis and Planning
  • 6. Refining Frameworks for Policy Analysis</li></ul>Enhanced adaptive capacity<br /> in agricultural, natural resource management, and food systems<br />
  • 7. The Three CCAFS Focus Regions<br />Indo-Gangetic Plains:<br />Parts of India, Bangladesh, Nepal<br />West Africa:<br />Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Niger<br />East Africa:<br />Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia<br />
  • 8. Regional Engagement Strategy<br />Goal<br />To empower stakeholders by increased regional engagement with them and not to provide ready one-time solutions for adaptation/mitigation<br />
  • 9. Approach<br />Participatory priority setting and benchmark site selection- Agenda setting workshops<br />Effective regional partnerships for participatory action research at different scales<br />Involvement of women and marginalized sectors of the society<br />Capacity building of stakeholders<br />Linkages with appropriate agencies for upscaling<br />Communication to stakeholders<br />
  • 10. Expected outcomes<br /><ul><li>Enhanced agricultural adaptation plans at different scales

  • 31. Portfolio of adaptation and mitigation technologies, practices and policies
  • 32. New knowledge about the trade-offs between adaptation and mitigation</li></li></ul><li> Priorities in IGP 2011-15: Focus area 1: Design and demonstration of community led climate-smart agriculture in benchmark CCAFS sites/villages<br />Work with rural communities to provide science driven actions addressing overall goals of development<br />PAR on risk management strategies (weather forecasting; insurance; food, forage, seed and water banks; adapted varieties; RCTs)<br />Agro-forestry, mitigation potential of interventions <br />Analogues to provide knowledge of adaptation options in other regions; farmer exchange<br />Value-added ITKs<br />
  • 33. Priorities in IGP 2011-15: Focus area 2: Climate-smart agricultural plans at sub-regional/ national scale<br />DSS/Toolkits for assessing the regionally differentiated vulnerabilities, and consequences of actions/inactions of policy decisions <br />Climate analogues for PGR conservation/evaluation<br />Climate forecasts and food security components<br />Agriccontribution to GHGs, mitigation options, incentives<br />)<br />
