    12. 12. Increasing Wheat Productivity in Asia Dr. Thomas Lumpkin – CIMMYT Director General Opportunities: Development and Delivery Capacity Building  Regional mechanism to facilitate learning among farmers, scientists, and policy makers Collaboration and Partnerships  PPPs  Regional research networks for trans-boundary disease and pest surveillance  Shuttle breeding programs accelerated by international centers  new Regional Alliance on Wheat  WHEAT CGIAR Research Program  BISA: Borlaug Institute for South AsiaRecommendations of the Regional Consultation for the Improvement of Wheat Productivity in Asia
    13. 13. Increasing Wheat Productivity in Asia Dr. Thomas Lumpkin – CIMMYT Director GeneralWHEAT CRP Target Populations  2.5 billion poor wheat consumers, 1.2 billion “wheat dependent” poor Estimated reach:  67% of the total wheat area, 84% of all wheat-dependent poor – highest priority Advantages  Overarching Strategic Initiatives aimed at increasing effectiveness and impact  Feedback mechanisms between stakeholders  Accelerated adoption of WHEAT technologies  Emphasis on capacity building across all Strategic Initiatives http://wheat.org
