  • MAIZE developed by more than 342 (179) partners. Identification of Priority Topics (refinement) of MAIZE R4D needs during launch of MAIZE CRP in 2012.• Partners are highly supportive of the operationalization of the MAIZE CRP; especially key features such as rapid responsiveness to MLN and the MAIZE Competitive Grants Initiative.• 85% of MAIZE CRP is bilateral – constantly re-prioritized by funders and doers – Fingers on the donor and partner pulse.• Increased gender transformation focus being encouraged internally and by bilateral donors and CO. Learning lessons from new bilateral projects.• Increased outcomes focus being encouraged internally and by bilateral donors and CO. Focus more on aggregate CRP change – What are the needs of the CRP? Everything is going well – only 1.5 years in operation. SI
  • 40% of total funds flowing through to partners• Currently 146 partners: 39 funded through Windows 1&2 and 107 funded through bilateral projects• Showcase CO Partnership Survey results o Third position after GRiSP and WHEATo Ranked either 1st or 2nd on 12 partnership criteria (out of a total of 26 criteria) Accountability = 2nd Capacity Development = 1st  Nurturing skills and knowledge 2nd  Facilitating access to knowledge = 2nd  Insightful communications 1st  Timely external communications 2nd  Global experience = 2nd  Local expertise 2nd  Sector specific knowledge 1st  Research into significant outputs 2nd  Distribute funding fairly = 2nd (with GRiSP) Working effectively with partners 1st
  • Development of nine Strategic Initiative (SIs) or Flagship Projects• Follow-up/refinement of R4D during MAIZE launch in 2012.o Priority R4D Topics identified during launch workshop  Incorporation into Windows 1&2 funded component of work plan Windows 1&2 funds payroll MAIZE CGI partners (37 in 2012)Flagships capture strategic areas research – unlikely to change significantly within next 6 - 9 years. MAIZE StAC will review and revise SIs as necessary. Development of Strategic Thrusts – Example (Aflatoxin Mitigation), MLN, Small-scale mechanization, heat and drought tolerance etc. New Strategic Thrusts are likely to materialize within the 6 - 9 year time frame; others are likely increase or decrease in priority
  • Currently 75 operational Innovation Platforms (learning platforms, technology dissemination platforms and hybrids)• Another 12 coming through the AfDB SARD-SC Project• Opportunities for combining innovation platformso SIMLEZA + SARD-SC + Africa Rising (in Eastern Province –Zambia)
  • Three pathways:o Research Strategy 1: Sustainable Intensification and income opportunities for the poor o Research Strategy 2: New maize varieties for the pooro Research Strategy 3: Integrated post-harvest management• Each research Strategy delivers/contributes to delivery of:o Output(s) e.g., High yielding and stress tolerant maize lines and varietieso Immediate Outcome(s) e.g., Improved maize varieties (high-yielding, stress tolerant, nutrient enhanced) adapted and promoted by NARES, NGO, and private seed companies.o Intermediate Development Outcomes(s) e.g., Smallholder farmers adopt improved maize varieties (high-yielding, stress tolerant, nutrient enhanced) or Increased yields of maize for smallholder farmers, Increased income of smallholder farmers and Increased nutritional diet.o Strategic Goal(s) e.g., Enhanced food security, Enhanced livelihoods and Enhance nutrition and improved healtho System Level Outcomes e.g., Increasing food security, Reducing rural poverty and Improving nutrition and health
  • • Output: New high yielding, stress tolerant and nutrient enhanced maize varieties• Immediate Development Outcome: Regional on-station testing• Immediate Development Outcome: Regional on-farm testing• Immediate Development Outcome: Variety Registration• Immediate Development Outcome: Seed Production• Intermediate Development Outcome: Smallholder farmers adopt improved maize varieties• Intermediate Development Outcome: Increased yields of maize for smallholder farmers, Increased income of smallholder farmers and Increased nutritional diet• Impact: Regional adoption• Impact: Improved SLOs
  • Eastern and Southern Africa – KARI• Western and Central Africa - University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria• Latin America – IICA• South Asia -National Academy of Agricultural Research Management (India)• Discuss MAIZE CGI – First regional (compared to traditional national) coordination by national partners (KARI, NAARM, IICA and ObafemiAwolowo University, Nigeria)
  • • W 1&2 - Innovation network analysis for improved technology delivery and out-scaling in maize-based systems – two in-house innovation systems experts and Wageningen University.• W 1&2 - Assess the performance of maize following promiscuous soybean and cowpea varieties and quantify N benefits to maize – IITA and national partners.• W 1&2 - Identification of biomass management constraints and implications for adoption of CA practices in mixed crop livestock systems • Promote local adoption of soybean in maize-based systems that reduce the need for synthetic nitrogen fertilizer – ZARI – MAIZE CGI.• Build local capacity to better understand maize-legume interactions and promote local adoption of soybean and/or cowpeas in maize-based CA systems – IIAM - MAIZE CGI• Decision guides for nutrient management – Eastern Africa – IPNI - MAIZE CGI
  • DTMA project 13 countries• 30,000 MT of commercial DT seed in 2012• Commercialization of DT maize varieties in South Asia via IMIC• Support for commercialization of DT maize varieties through MAIZE Competitive Grants Initiative (Windows 1&2 performance- focused grants to partners)• 11 private sector seed companies• Somalia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Angola, Ghana & Nepal. (MAIZE CGI)• Stronger (and formal) partnerships with relevant entities• AGRA/PASS• IMAS/IRMA/WEMA/SIMLESA• SARD-SC/ISMA/AFRICARISING/National Initiatives
  • • 91 breeders from developing countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia received training on Doubled Haploid breeding• A Doubled Haploid facility has been established at CIMMYT HQ, Mexico.• A second facility is under development in sub-Saharan Africa.• All funded through W 1&2

  • The Way Forward• Strong impact & delivery orientation in many MAIZE projects• Streamlining: ToC, IDOs, KPIs … across diverse regions, projects• More realism is needed:• “Assessing germplasm impact annually at a global level”• Role of IAR and CRPs versus role of partners – They are at the interface offarm level impact• Test robustness of impact pathways, ToC, IDOs, KPIs – consultancies in2nd half of 2013• Develop Partnership and Capacity-Building Strategy• Invest in performance partnerships (i.e., those that deliver)
