CCAFS Strategy for Climate Services, Hansen 2013

  1. 1. CCAFS Strategy for Climate Services Jim Hansen, CCAFS Theme 2 Leader March 2013
  2. 2. CCAFS objectives 1. Identify and develop pro-poor adaptation and mitigation practices, technologies and policies for agriculture and food systems. 2. Support the inclusion of agricultural issues in climate change policies, and of climate issues in agricultural policies, at all levels.
  3. 3. Framework and Themes Adapting Agriculture to a Variable and Changing Climate Technologies, practices, partnerships and policies for: Improved 1.Adaptation to Progressive Climate Environmental Improved Change Health Rural 2.Adaptation through Managing Livelihoods Improved Climate Risk Food Security 3.Pro-poor Climate Change Mitigation Trade -offs a 4. Integration for Decision Making nd Sy n ergies •Linking Knowledge with Action •Assembling Data and Tools for Analysis and Planning •Refining Frameworks for Policy Analysis Enhanced adaptive capacity in agricultural, natural resource management, and food systems

  7. 7. Improving delivery and communication• Evaluation of agrometeorological advisory services in India & Mali• Review of knowledge on gender and social equity challenges in climate services for farmers• Synthesis report on status, gaps, priorities for climate services for agriculture in Africa & S. Asia• Workshop on Scaling Up Climate Services for Farmers in Africa and South Asia (Dakar, 10-12 Dec)
  8. 8. Fostering effective use• Piloting & evaluating downscaled seasonal forecasts, farmer training, forecast-based advisories, Makuene, Kenya & Kaffrine, Senegal• Video on farmers’ experience with climate risk and information services• Enhancing the use of climate information for government decisions in Ethiopia
  9. 9. CCAFS “niche”• Research for development (R4D). Address gaps: – Knowledge – Methods and tools – Evidence• Strengths: – Impact evaluation – Value-added climate information – Understand decisions• Boundary organization: – Give agricultural decision-makers a voice, ownership – Bridge climate service providers and users• Need, flexibility to partner with development organizations
