  • Welcome! This slide presentation gives a brief overview of the Triple A Framework and how CGIAR Centers will benefit from it.


  • 1. Photos : CIP, CIMMYT, CIAT Triple A Framework to Make CGIAR Research Available and Useful AAA Benchmarking in Centers and Programs
  • 2. Photo : CIP
    • Information and knowledge are not born public; they must be worked upon to ensure they become public, i.e. available, accessible and applicable
    • Recent independent review of CGIAR encouraged Centers “to make their research available and useful for development” – as well as international science
    • ICT-KM offering Centers opportunity to assess dissemination and uptake of their research outputs
  • 3. Photo : CIP
    • CGIAR-produced data, information or knowledge asset
      • Benefits can travel across boundaries
      • Described and stored for posterity
      • Easily found and accessed
      • can be shared and re-used
      • is affordable
      • In short: available, accessible and applicable without restrictions
    International Public Good
  • 4. Photo : CIP AAA Framework
      • Help understand and assess International Public Good (IPG) status of CGIAR research outputs
      • ‘ Benchmark’ how research outputs measure up according to their availability, accessibility and applicability
      • Tailored to different types of research and programs
      • Help scientists and Centers/Programs decide on level of availability and accessibility of outputs they produce – and the pathways to get there!
  • 5. Photo : CIP Value: What Centers stand to gain
    • Assist centers in developing pathways to wider accessibility for their outputs
    • Guide/ help scientists adopt AAA thinking
    • Leverage on CGIAR publishing muscle
    • Make CGIAR knowledge visible through partners
    • Research outputs more likely to be international public goods
  • 6. Photo : CIP
      • Availability: research outputs stored in open digital formats and described using public metadata standards so they can be found through structured search and access systems
      • Accessibility: research outputs publicly available online so they can be queried, viewed and obtained in full
    ICT-KM will benchmark
  • 7. Photo : CIP
    • Benchmark where Center/Program is NOW, in terms of accessibility and pathways used
    • Make accessible system-wide pathways information
    • Help Center/Program identify where it wants to be in 6-12 months, defining aims and a roadmap
    • Help Center/Program identify pathways to implement its ‘AAA roadmap’
    What we will do
  • 8. Photo : CIP
    • 12 months later – Center/Program benchmarks research output accessibility again, any progress towards roadmap?
    • Document ‘islands of excellence’, incorporating pathways into system-wide resource
    • Benchmark Applicability:
      • Research processes open and inclusive so all perspectives and knowledge taken into account during research design, planning, implementation and communication.
      • Research outputs customized and adapted for easy uptake and use by others
    Next steps
