    • Institutions and policies for scaling-out climate smart agriculture, Hotel Hilton, Colombo, Sri Lanka, 2-3 December 2013 Key Points Emerging from the Workshop NK Tyagi, Former Member of Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) M Radeny, ILRI/CCAFS Arun KC, IWMI/CCAFS 2013 1
    • Message 1 Institutions and Policies can be Game Changer • Climate change adaptation in agriculture , unlike other sectors, is site specific and scaling out CSA is a real challenge • Adaptation and mitigation of climate change impacts can be mediated through setting in order the policies and institutions in agriculture sector on priority 2
    • • Some judicious policies like separation of power feeder from domestic rural electricity supply lines in Gujarat in India and business model currently being implemented in Ghana as a Private Public Partnership for Fecal Sludge Valorization, that made the difference • Implementation of technological and other innovations requires supporting policies and institutions to become part of development plan 3
    • Message 2 Policies which favour adoption of farming systems and not cropping system alone, need to put in place • Agriculture is not limited to only crops, but also includes forestry, animals, and fishery • Ensuring food and nutrition security under climate change or even otherwise will require that CSA cover the entire spectrum of agriculture 2013 4
    • Message 3 Learn from the available experience in network countries and elsewhere and develop more such bright spots to convert CSA into a movement • Considerable experience on out-scaling of climate smart agriculture, as exhibited by large scale implementation of several CSA technologies (case studies) • Land restored through farmer-managed natural regeneration in Niger, herbicide-tolerant crops in Canada, weather-based crop insurance in India, grain for green programme in China, rain water harvesting in Sahel are successful examples 5
    • Message 4 Formulation of appropriate policy requires engagement with all stakeholders • Blending participatory approaches with quantitative analysis improves the decision making process • Need to develop relevant information base for policy formulation and implementation engaging with all stakeholders at various levels • Develop full package of program for policy reform 6
    • Message 5 New tools are available and others are being developed • A number of tools have been developed to aid in policy planning • Tools can help identify the best CSA options for targeted investment of limited funds • No single tool would be applicable everywhere. It would require capacity building to decide what suits best in a given location at given time 7
    • Message 6 Initiation of regional cooperation for climate risk management • SAARC countries are an example of how to overcome the climate change imposed constraints in region • A similar model could adopted in other regions to increase the capacity of the regions to battle against adverse climate change impacts 8
    • Message 7 Insurance is a desirable intervention for promoting CSA, particularly in low income and highly vulnerable regions • Crop based as well as weather based indices can be practised on mass scale • The correlation between insurance and CSA adoption needs to be empirically established • Involvement of private sector partners can make it work better in the long run 9
    • Message 8 Key issues for scaling out • Scaling out CSA requires delineation of potential investment opportunities, potential challenges and new research needed to attract private sector investment • CSA can be successful if it is packaged as part of other national development strategies and policies • Government support is crucial for successful scaling out of CSA • Requires a broader consensus among policy makers, researcher, and private sectors 10
    • Message 9 Decision making for policies on overcoming climate change impacts does not take place in vacuum • The few successful interventions in CCAFS network and elsewhere can be used to explain the process involved in sound decision making 11
    • A BIG MESSAGE There are problems for scaling out CSA but there are solutions too 12
