The presentation is by Srivardhini, CGIAR/MCCHE from the one day workshop on ‘Pulses for Nutrition in India: Changing Patterns from Farm-to-Fork’ organized on Jan 14, 2014. The workshop is based on a few studies conducted by the International Food Policy Research Institute under the CGIAR’s Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health. These studies covered the entire domain of pulse sector in India from production to consumption, prices to trade, processing to value addition, and from innovations to the role of private sector in strengthening the entire pulse value chain. These studies were designed to better understand the drivers of changing dynamics of pulses in the value chain from farm-to-fork, and explore opportunities for meeting their availability through increased production, enhanced trade and improved efficiency.

IFPRI- pulses convergent innovation Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Convergent Innovation in Pulse Value Chain Dr. Srivardhini K. Jha Research Scientist, CGIAR/MCCHE
  • 2. Convergent Innovation (CI) • Convergent innovation is the integration of technological, organizational, social, financial and institutional innovation by multiple actors to achieve inclusive and sustainable economic growth and human development. • It is a form of Meta-innovation – an innovation in the way we innovate – that is built on four core tenets – A deep and actionable understanding of human behavior and decision making – Strategic engagement by private enterprises – Community collaboration and Multi-sector collective action – Embedded digital technologies
  • 3. Convergent Innovation A deep understanding of human behavior and decision making Strategic engagement by private enterprises Community mobilization and cross-sector collective action Institutional Innovation Financial Innovation Social Innovation Organizational Innovation Technological Innovation Economic and Human Development Outcomes Embedded digital technologies
  • 4. Why CI in Pulse Value Chain? • It is a nutrition-rich commodity that needs to keep its place in people’s diet • In India, there are inefficiencies across the value chain – from production, processing to distribution and retailing. • A complex issue that touches the entire cross-section of society – smallholder farmers, SMEs, large enterprises and consumers spanning the income pyramid. • Addressing the issue requires concerted effort from a variety of players cutting across sectors and markets.
  • 5. Tata MoPu/iShakti: A Quasi-CI initiative A deep understanding of human behavior and decision making Strategic engagement by private enterprises Community mobilization and cross-sector collective action Institutional Innovation Social Innovation Financial Innovation Extension work by Rallis. The package of practices to support the farmers Organizational Innovation Rallis’ innovation in seeds, fertilizers, pesticides Technological Innovation Positive Economic Outcome for the farmers and the various companies involved Embedded digital technologies (mKRISHI) Weaving together of various government programs Tie-up with HDFC and SBI to offer credit to farmers and to facilitate direct payment
  • 6. Orissa Pilot: A Pilot CI Implementation A deep understanding of human behavior and decision making Strategic engagement by private enterprises Community mobilization and cross-sector collective action Institutional Innovation Financial Innovation Social Innovation Private firms, NGOs and RIs working in tandem, sharing information and coordinating across Organizational boundaries Organizational Innovation New/Improved variety of pulses Technological Innovation - Economic and nutrition/health outcomes for farmers - Sustainability for all actors Embedded digital technologies (for agriculture and health) Micro-entrepreneurship for community mobilization, Self-help groups To be introduced as the project progresses
  • 7. Addressing Consumption • The CI initiatives described above are primarily production focused, striving to achieve convergent outcome for the smallholder farmers. • However, to gain efficiencies across the PVC, the consumption side also needs to be addressed. • The question is – how can pulses carve out a place in the daily diet in an era of rapidly changing lifestyles, dietary habits and a general trend towards convenience foods? • Pulse Innovation Partnership (PIP) is a consortium of companies that hopes to address this issue.
  • 8. The PIP Food Storage / Primary Processing Secondary food Processing Tertiary food Processing Food distribution, transportation & trade Food promotion and labeling Food retailing, service & catering Food Production … • The PIP is an open innovation platform that aspires to bring about convergent food innovations – low-cost, nutritious and tasty pulse-based products in a way that is sustainable for the innovating companies. • Focused on both developing and developed markets. • The business model is under development. • The food innovation will create a ‘pull’ effect on pulse production.
