  • 11. Intermediate Development OutcomesDirect• Food Security – better access• Nutrition & Health – increased consumption• Income – increased benefit from value chainsEnabling• Productivity – food systems• Gender – empowerment and equity• Capacity to Innovate – improved capacity• Resilience - adaptive capacity (people + systems)• Policies – enabling environment/ institutions• Environment – minimize adverse effects
  • 12. IDO example: Rural poverty“Increased and more equitable income earned by lowincome value chain actors in aquatic agriculturalsystems, with increased share captured by women”Specific AAS targets (within 12 years):•50% increase in income from AAS value chains in 500,000poor households in the Polder Zone of Bangladesh, with 40%of that income earned by women•60% increase in income from AAS value chains in 50,000poor households in the Barotse floodplain of Zambia, with40% of that income earned by women
