  • Complexity: We are dealing with complex problems which require complex thinking – learning system, adaptation, adaptive management are necessary

Transcript

  • 1. CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems An Overview for Science Focal Meeting Amman, December 2013
  • 2. Contents • Over-view of WLE – Goals, Objectives • Emerging WLE Program Areas of Work • How we are organized • Examples of innovation & how WLE intends to work
  • 3. The challenges facing our global food production systems
  • 4. Water Land and Ecosystem Vision: A world in which agriculture thrives within vibrant ecosystems, where communities have higher incomes, improved food security and the ability to continuously improve their lives
  • 5. Goal: Sustainable intensification of agricultural development WLE IDO: Productivity CGIAR System Level Outcomes 1. Reduce rural poverty 2. Increase food security 3. Improve nutrition and human health 4. Sustainable management of natural resources Improved land, water and energy productivity in rainfed and irrigated agro-ecosystem WLE IDO: Equity Increased resilience of communities through enhanced ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes. WLE IDO: Income Increased and more equitable income from agricultural and natural resources management and ecosystem services in rural and peri-urban areas WLE IDO: Risk Management Increased ability of low income communities to adapt to environmental and economic variability, demographic shifts, shocks and long term changes WLE IDO: Gender Women and marginalized groups have decision making power over and increased benefits derived from agriculture and natural resources.
  • 6. WLE Portfolio 2013/2014 Activities Mapped into SRPs and Activity Clusters • 160 Activities mapped into SRPs • ESS Related Scoping Activities • Gender related activities Focal Region Activities • 2013 CPWF Related Activities ending in 2013/2014 • Regional Representation • Design of focal region programs WLE Innovation Fund • Moving promising activities to scale • Centrality of partners • Gender and ESS play central role
  • 7. Where WLE is moving toward SRP Led Global Pathways • • • • • Examples Resource Recovery & Reuse Land Degradation Water, Food & Energy Nexus Small Scale Irrigation in SSA Salinity Cross-Cutting Initiatives • Environmental flows • Mapping ESS and resilience into Focal Regions • Gender across program • Information decision-making Focal Regions West Africa South Asia Latin America Central Asia SE Asia East Africa Southern Africa Middle East
  • 8. WLE Uptake Framework: CGIAR/ISPC Impact Pathways/Theories of Change System Level Outcomes WLE research outcomes WLE Intermediate Development Outcomes WLE research outputs
  • 9. WLE uptake strategy: significant focus on the research client WLE research outcomes Opportunity identification Levers and incentives Partner engagement System Level Outcomes WLE research outputs Client analysis Decision analysis WLE Intermediate Development Outcomes
  • 10. In each focal region, WLE is identifying the “opportunity space” for research to support client decision making Risk analysis: major decisions affecting agro-ecosystems that support large numbers of people Opportunity analysis: research needed to provide alternatives that improve ecosystem services for human development WLE opportunity space Client analysis: decision makers demand research Niche analysis: limited research available WLE integrated portfolio of research is designed to capitalize on this opportunity
  • 11. Example of client focus: WLE resource recovery and reuse Issue: Urban areas are growing and consuming more resources. How do we recover nutrients and water at scale? Technical knowledge is available, but few projects go to scale. WLE seeks to change this by analyzing business models and returns on investment. Clear client focus: the private sector, public private partnerships, and business schools  The research portfolio is designed for the client: analyze successes and test promising business models for replication at scale  Multi-disciplinary research team includes economists, business developers, and environmental scientists Faecal sludge Nutrients for agricultural production
  • 12. Supporting research client decision making through decision analysis WLE research outcomes Opportunity identification Levers and incentives Partner engagement System Level Outcomes WLE research outputs Client analysis Decision analysis WLE Intermediate Development Outcomes
  • 13. Example: the decision analysis process Northeast Kenya: Tap the Merti aquifer to pump water > 100 km to town of Waiir? Identify risks and uncertainties in decision of interest Engage decision makers Compute value of additional information (uncertain variables with high information value = priorities for measurement) Applied Information Economics D. Hubbard, “How to Measure Anything”, 2010 Make probabilistic cost/benefit impacts on different stakeholder groups of likely outcomes of decision Probabilistic outcomes (benefits/negative impacts) for different stakeholder groups
  • 14. Focused partner engagement, levers and incentives WLE research outcomes Opportunity identification Levers and incentives Partner engagement System Level Outcomes WLE research outputs Decision analysis Client analysis WLE Intermediate Development Outcomes
  • 15. CPWF/Andes: uptake incentives through benefit sharing Canete River Basin, Peru Upper basin: subsistence agriculture, extensive degrading Middle basin: hydropower company Lower basin: urban and tourism Farmers receive training and capital to : - Rehabilitate wetlands - Forest conservation - Improve farming practices $

  • 17. Partnership for Outcomes 6– DELIVER RESEARCH OUTCOMES – impact multiplies through partners GLOBAL Global initiatives informed and inspired by research, support national and landscape investments • • • New investments made by IFAD, GIZ, GEF Public and private Policy, Regulation, Incentives support adoption 0 – 6 years 9 years 3 – 6 years • Strategies adopted that are site specific, gender & equity sensitive Potential beneficiaries FAO, GSP, UNCCD, ELD, GEF, UNEP, U NDP NATIONAL REGIONAL National Agriculture and NRM policy CAADP, IFAD, GIZ, SDC LANDSCAPE Communities, civil society, NGO’s, national extension, ARI’s, IFAD, SDC 10’s of thousands of thousands Millions 100’s
  • 18. Capacity Building • Embedded into Impact Pathways • Beyond PhDs and training • Mentoring and Young Professionals • Putting national partners in the lead
  • 19. Challenges for Us to Address • Vision for where we are going • Complexity and adaptation: We cannot solve complex problems with simple solutions • Integration and working together • Change management
