CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), Value for money

  1. 1. CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food secure future Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security value for money proposition Theory of change: Research Proposition IDO4: Policies supporting climate-resilient agriculture Working with partners to collect the evidence, to change opinions and worldviews $ 500 M = •≥ 20 million additional farmers, at least 50% women, have climatesmart practices •Adaptive capacity enhanced of ≥ 10 million farmers, at least 50% women, through advisories and safety nets •≥ 20% reduction of GHG emissions intensities while enhancing food security in ≥ 7 countries •≥ 25 countries increased investments in CSA by ≥ 50% Before 2024 1. CSA Alliance, World Bank, IFAD, Climate Finance Orgs, Ministries 2. World Vision, National Meteorological Agencies, Disaster Risk Agencies, Insurance Agencies 3. IIASA, FAO, Global Research Alliance for Agricultural GHGs 4. Food security and climate adaptation agencies, GFAR, CFS Gender Capacity Building Working with partners to make it happen 1&3: CSA Alliance, World Bank, IFAD, Green Climate Fund, Prolinnova, climate finance orgs, ministries 2: World Vision, National Meteorological Agencies, Disaster Risk Agencies, Insurance Agencies Working with partners to understand what works • Multiple local partners (e.g. CARE, Vi Agroforestry, NARES, National Insurance Company of India) Flagship 1: Climate –smart agricultural practices Flagship 2: Climate – information services and climate-informed saftey nets IDO1: Enhanced food security Key IDO2: Benefits to women and marginalised groups IDO3: Enhanced adaptive capacity to climate risks Flagship 3: Low emissions development IDO5: Reduced GHGs and forest conversion Flagship 4: Policies and institutions for climate resilient food systems Results: Increased adaptative capacity SLOs IDOs Weather Index-Based Insurance (IWMI/IFPRI, India) •CCAFS is helping to develop new insurance products where pay-outs are automatically triggered when weather events pass a predetermined threshold •12 million farmers already insured Microdosing (ICRISAT, Zimbabwe) •2013 study shows microdosing increases yields by 60-80%, increases food security and resilience, has a 30-35% adoption rate after training, and offers an internal rate of return on investment of > 40% Benefits to women and marginalised groups Enhanced Food Security Reducing Rural Poverty Commission on Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change •Report downloaded 30,000 times in 2012 •Report informed national legislation in Mexico & Kenya, was used to validate Bangladesh’s UNFCCC submission on agriculture Climate change mitigation Policies supporting climateresilient agriculture More sustainable management of natural resources Increasing Food Security Opportunities for the future: Lessons Learned: Lessons Learned: (1) Operational Challenges Climate change adaptation is all about building adaptive capacity and resilience – these concepts are extremely difficult to operationalise (2) A controversial topic: Climate change remains a controversial, highly politicised subject – this limits the application of evidence-based implementation. Climate-smart villages: participatory testing grounds for integrated approaches to climate variability Decision-support tools: that allow policy makers to ask, and answer, difficult “what if” questions about trade-offs among food security, adaptation and mitigation Climate services: partnering with national meteorological services to produce and deliver locally relevant climate data tailored to farmers’ needs Gender: Research Capacity Building • Climate change impacts women and men differently • Has greater impact on marginalised groups • Women & men have differential access to climate services • Many Climate Smart technologies negatively impact women’s labour Example: Substantial empirical research on adoption of mitigation technologies, access to institutions, governance arrangements and social differentiation undertaken across several participating Centers. Example: CCAFS has trained 1700 women leaders in Bihar, India on the gender aspects of climate change, agriculture & food security. Each will go on to train 100 more women when they return home.
