AAS – Presentation for Discussion with Donors and Partners – June 2013

  1. 1. AAS: Making a differenceMontpellier 24 June 2013
  2. 2. Today• What is AAS• Our focus• Our impact – IDOs• How we’ll getthere (ToCs + IPs)• Some questionswww.aas.cgiar.org
  3. 3. “The definition of insanity isdoing the same thing overand over again andexpecting different results”Albert Einstein• Gender• ME&IA• Scaling• Partnerships• Capacity dep’t• Integration

  5. 5. Aquatic Agricultural SystemsSystems and livelihoods – not commodities
  6. 6. Aquatic Agricultural SystemsNOT ABOUT FISH!only
  7. 7. Rural povertyNumber of rural poor (millions) (<US$1.25 per day)“… there are serious andgrowing threats to theproductivity and resilience of theGreen Revolution lands.Equitability has also been low.The larger landowners havereaped most of the benefits,while the poor and landless havemissed out.” (Conway 2012)

  27. 27. Foundation stones of AAS impact evaluation1. Theory of change2. Staged approach3. Understandingcausality4. Design framework
  28. 28. Foundation 1: Build and test nested theoriesof change• With stakeholders• From the beginning
  29. 29. Foundation 2: Staged evaluations• Pathways unclearto begin with• Staged approach• Ex-ante• Mid-term• Ex-post• In support oflearning andaccountability
  30. 30. Foundation 3: Demonstrating andunderstanding causality• Across a wider set ofexpected change• Accountable to a widerset of stakeholders• Acknowledgecontribution• Parsimonious andpractical• Innovation required
  31. 31. Foundation 4: Framework for selectingimpact evaluation designsFrom: Stern et al, 2012• Theory based• Case based• Participatory• Experimental
  32. 32. Gender Equality OutcomesAAS IDO Indicators and TargetsHousehold income 40% of increased income earned and controlled by womenConsumption and nutrition 50% increase in consumption of nutrient rich small fish andvegetables by women and childrenPolicies Evidence of positive contributions to shifts in gender equitablepolicies, policy implementation or institutional contextControl of assets anddecision makingNumber of women, youth and marginalized groups-pursuing new and beneficial livelihood choices-accessing services and inputs-building personal and household assets-controlling decisions regarding production, assets, income,expenditure-% taking up leadership roles in communitiesProcess indicators:-Number of functional GTA reflection and learning groupsembedded in innovation platforms-Number of program staff, partners and service providers whoseskills have been built to facilitate GTA-Coalitions at different levels formed to facilitate uptake of gendertransformative approaches-Number of partner programs embedding GTA
