  • CRP4 was submitted by IFPRI; proposal was prepared in close collaboration with ILRI, and with support from 10 other Centers and an extensive consultation process with a large number of partners from ag, health, nutr
  • Program impact pathwaysCRP4 is expected to enhance the contribution of agriculture research outputs to nutrition and health improvements through three major pathways:Value chains that provide more nutritious and safe food….Stronger and more effective development programsPolicy that promotes supportive and enabling x-sectoral policymaking processes, and investment environment.The slide shows the main partners/actors/stakeholders that will use our research outputsKEY ISSUE OF WHAT IS THE ROLE OF RESPONSIBILITIES OF RESEARCH AND HOW RESEARCHERS INTERACT WITH DEVELOPMENT ENABLERS AND IMPLEMENTERS
  • Essential ingredient of a successful joint effort.Unique complexity of CRP4 requires for careful selection, management and monitoring of partnerships. A partnership strategy will be developed at the onset of the program.Committed to a partnership process that incorporates stsrategic thinking, systematic processes with partners, innovative behaviors and resources, and implementation of best partnership performance practices.As a follow up from our partners meeting held 1 year ago in Addis, there is a nascent AGRICULTURE, HEALTH AND NUTRITION UNIVERSITY NETWORK – linked to CRP4

    • 3. Initial Research Priorities NUTRITIONAL VALUE CHAINS • overall framework and assessment of opportunities for different food systems • co-develop specific value chain opportunities with key actors BIO-FORTIFICATION • continue bio-fortified crop development and evaluation • enhance spillovers - new countries and commercial value chains AGRICULTURE-ASSOCIATED DISEASES • aflatoxin risks and their mitigation • prioritization of food safety and zoonotic risks and their mitigation and trade-offs in intensifying production systems and evolving value chains INTEGRATED PROGRAMS AND POLICIES • continue to strengthen program evaluation with new cross-sectoral metrics and approaches • cross-sectoral priorities and policies with key partners in SSA and South Asia
    • 4. Program Impact Pathways Outputs Research Development Outcomes Outcomes• Biofortified & nutrient-rich foods available & accessible to the poor 1. VALUE CHAINS:• Knowledge & technologies •Producers to improve quality & safety •Chain agents Impacts of foods along value chains Value chains that Implementers developed • Media & consumer groups provide more Improved• Better, more cost-effective •Regulators nutritious & safer nutrition integrated ANH program food models & capacity & health, strengthened 2. DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS: especially• Strong evidence of the role •Development program among of integrated ANH programs implementers(gov’t , NGOs) women & in improving health & nutrition •Public health program Better integrated young• Good practices in integrated implementers ANH programs children ANH policymaking applied Enablers• Cross sectoral work 3. POLICY: Better cross- incentivized •Policymakers & investors sectoral policy,• Capacity for joint •Inter-gov’t agencies regulation & policymaking strengthened investment
