  • Data and tools available on our website and what we have in the pipeline for 2013.
  • Questions are reflected on our website. Change that one, only photos, bullets
  • What that means in practice.Sources of data, harvested area (SPAM), rainfall (University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit (CRU).), soil (Geoderma ), seasonality () => yield potential gaps
  • Very concrete and pragmatic questions and applications
  • How HC data is being used, Why geography matters: HarvestChoice spatial layers in BMGF Project Mapping Tool. Combining investment mapping with geographic analysis (spatial queries) – juxtaposing planned with on-the-ground activities (e.g. BMGF)
  • Agricultural Investment Planning & Targeting: value-chain prioritization. Help support country-level strategies.
  • Agricultural Investment Planning & Targeting: value-chain prioritization. Help support country-level strategies.
  • Questions we are passionate about: categorized into research topics – also directly accessible through Data, Maps and Publications sections (brief overview of the website content organization and search options). Where are the poor and what is their welfare status? On what farming systems do the poor most depend? What are the constraints affecting the productivity and market integration of those farming systems? What present or prospective investments in technologies and practices might best address those constraints? How best to tune targets and technologies to different sub-national conditions?What are the benefits of investments on productivity, farmers income and ultimately, the reduction of poverty and hunger, and income distribution?What is the aggregate landscape of planned national investments across the region?
  • Data and other resources: categorized into research topics – also directly accessible through Data, Maps and Publications sections. Publishing data through more channels, e.g. FAO, directly into donor information systems, Microsoft research for visualization.

  • Categorized into research topics – also directly accessible through Data, Maps and Publications sections (brief overview of the website content organization and search options)
  • Address more complex questions, not enough to provide baseline situation analysis.
  • Recognize that tech adoption and farm management practices, attitude to risks are largely influenced by household characteristics and institutional environment. Useful to augment existing models (e.g. market access, crop modeling).
  • Why geography matters: planned investments within their geographic contexts. Different footprints. To be folded into HC framework. Develop methods and workflows and research groups to increase transparency.
  • To find out more… and credits
