    Aquatic Agricultural Systems Aquatic Agricultural Systems Presentation Transcript

    • Aquatic Agricultural Systems IFAD 12 July 2013
    • AAS • Rationale • Approach • Innovation • IFAD & AAS
    • AAS Rationale
    • Aquatic Agricultural Systems Systems and livelihoods – not commodities
    • Integrated Agricultural Systems
    • Rural poverty Number of rural poor (millions) (<US$1.25 per day)
    • Moving beyond the Green Revolution • “… there are serious and growing threats to the productivity and resilience of the Green Revolution lands. Equitability has also been low. The larger landowners have reaped most of the benefits, while the poor and landless have missed out.” (Conway 2012)
    • CGIAR - STRATEGY AND RESULTS FRAMEWORK • “Agricultural production system research should increase and progressively become the focal point for the integration of commodity and natural resources research.” (CGIAR SRF 2011)
    • AAS Southern Polder Zone WHEAT; GRiSP CPWF - WLE CCAFS A4NH PIM CGIAR Alignment L&F Haor basin
    • AAS Approach
    • Rural poverty and AAS Ca. 80m people dependent on AAS 66% living in poverty Source: Bené & Teoh, in prep.
    • MekongMekong The Coral Triangle GBM*GBM* ZambeziZambezi Population living on <$1.25/day, per grid cell (resolution : 9 km at the equator) NigerNiger Lakes Victoria -Kyoga Lakes Victoria -Kyoga Source of poverty map: CGIAR SRF Domain Analysis Spatial Team (2009) *GBM: Ganges-Brahmaputra- Megna delta (where learning from Coral Triangle will be scaled out) South Pacific Community African Inland Asia mega deltas • High numbers of poor and/or High % of total population dependent on AAS • High vulnerability to change (climate/sea level/water) • Potential to scale out Geographical Focus African Coastal System Area (km²) People <US$1.25/day Africa – freshwater 800,000 70m 43m Africa – coastal 300,000 12m 7m Asian Deltas 50,000 100m 40m
    • Intermediate Development Outcomes Income Productivity Control of assets Capacity to innovate Greater resilience Capacity to adapt Policies Minimized effects Carbon sequestratio n Material Outcomes Instrumental Outcomes Environmental Outcomes Access to food Nutrition
    • Innovating for impact “… there are serious and growing threats to the productivity and resilience of the Green Revolution lands. Equitability has also been low. The larger landowners have reaped most of the benefits, while the poor and landless have missed out.” (Conway 2012)
    • “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” Albert Einstein
    • Areas of innovation • RinD • Gender • Nutrition • ME&IA • Scaling • Partnerships • Capacity dep’t
    • Nutrition sensitive AAS landscapes • Vegetable (orange flesh sweet potato (OFSP)) on pond dykes and in homestead gardens • Promotion of nutrient-rich fish consumption and increased dietary diversity
    • The RinD Approach: Programmatic Theory of Change
    • Countries and hubs 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Bangladesh Cambodia Myanmar As-Pac (x?) ??? Solomons Philippines Africa (x2) Africa (x?) ??? Zambia
    • Integrated themes: Gender Health & Nutrition Learning/Sharing/Communication Engagement & Empowerment Effective Partnerships High potential NRM value chains Fish Aquatic Plants Farm productivity & diversification Diversified farming systems Dietary diversification Baseline studies Ecosystem services Agrobiodiversity Agric. Knowledge + info systems Governance High potential agric. value chains Cattle Rice HUB strategic initiatives Flood risk management Gender transformative approach Awareness + communication in schools Canal management Program operations Governance Management Communications Capacity building for implementation Community level initiatives Barotse Hub, Zambia
    • AAS – Partners and pathways to scale • National and local Governments • NARS • NGOs (national and international) • Other research partners • Private sector • Local Government • NARS • Community Organizations + NGOs • Other research partners • Private sector
    • IFAD + AAS Mutual learning • Nutrition sensitive production technology • Nutrition sensitive landscapes • Gender • M&EIA Scaling out and up
