    2
  • 3. GWP Strategy:
    3
  • 4. What is an “operational strategy”?
    How we implement our Strategy in achieving food security?
     what did we, in 2008 say we would do?
    How we build on our strengthsto address our strategic challenges?
    How we take advantage of the opportunities– in working with others?
    How we carve out our “niche”?
    4
  • 5. Achieving Food Security:what did we say in 2008 we would do?
    “GWP will work with the CGIAR system, particularly with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) to facilitate adoption of the recommendations emerging from the Comprehensive Assessment of Water Management in Agriculture and the Challenge Programme on Water and Food (2007).”
    5
  • 6. What does the Comprehensive Assessment say?
    “…there is enough land, water, and human capacity to produce food for a growing population over the next 50 years…
    …IF we act NOW to improve water use and management in agriculture…”
    CA recommends 8 policy actions…
    http://www.iwmi.cgiar.org/assessment/
    6
  • 7. CA’s Recommended Policy Actions:
    Change the way we think about water and agriculture
    Fight poverty by improving access to agricultural water and its use
    Manage agriculture to enhance ecosystem services
    Increase the productivity of water
    Upgrade rainfed systems – a little water can go a long way
    Adapt yesterday’s irrigation to tomorrow’s needs
    Reform the reform process – targeting institutions
    Deal with tradeoffs and make difficult choices
    7
  • 8. What are the “opportunities”?
    Policy actions are already identified
     ref. the Comprehensive Assessment!!
    Recognition that integrated approaches (i.e. IWRM) are in fact the “best” way to manage water and related resources – to address the water-food-energy nexus
    The strengths of key allies:
     working together to create synergies:
     1 + 1 = more than 2!
    8
  • 9. What are the “opportunities”?
    The challenge of food production in a world with increasing population constrained by limited land and freshwater resources
    Recognition that existing hierarchical business models have limitations in delivering results – GWP is unique
    9
  • 10. What are our “strengths”?
    GWP is a ”Network” - not a hierarchy:
    voluntary association – working together on the basis of a social contract  our “core values”
    fluid and organic  not always easily predictable
    informal structuring of relationships to share knowledge and information
    we can do things other organisations cannot
    10
  • 11. What are our “strengths”?
    GWP has a ”neutral platform”
    our ability to bring multiple, sometimes competing, sectors together
    Global and regional technical leadership:
    Technical Committee
    GWP ToolBox
    Regional knowledgeplatforms
    11
  • 12. Possible activities and outcomes:
    Policy processes  strengthening the links between water and land management though IWRM strategies and plans  decision-making processes
    12
  • 13. Possible activities and outcomes:
    Advocacy the CA talks about “changing the way we think about water and agriculture”…. GWP advocates integrated – IWRM - processes
    13
  • 14. Possible activities and outcomes:
    Linking research to application:
     e.g. synergies with the CGIAR CRP5 on water, land and ecosystems.
    14
  • 15. Possible activities and outcomes:
    Financing promoting IWRM strategies and plans to “set the stage” for investments by IFIs (e.g. World Bank, IFAD, etc.) and others in national and regional water management and development activities
    15
  • 16. Possible activities and outcomes:
    Linking food security and climate change adaptation:
    • investments in land and water management and development…
    • 17. are ‘no regrets’ investments that also increase resilience to climatic variability
    16
  • 18. Win-win opportunities with key allies:
    How can we build on our “strengths” and those of our key allies
    and develop “synergies”?
    Help us to carve out our ”niche”together in “achieving food security”!
