CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets, Value for Money

  1. 1. CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food secure future Policies, Institutions and Markets Value for Money Proposition Theory of Change Results and Insights Foresight Modeling: Twenty promising technologies tested in the models to compare benefit streams. Science Policy: Program for Biosafety Systems assists countries with regulatory frameworks; Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators tracks spending on agricultural research. Sustainable Intensification: Innovations in extension tested and adopted in East Africa. Policy and Public Spending: Updated methodology and data on agricultural public spending; Arab Spatial Tools for policy analysis in Middle East and North Africa; modeling of biofuel policies. Value Chains: Tools and methods used by other CRPs; applications in Vietnam lead to higher quality milk and better prices for smallholders. Social Protection: Research informs implementation of programs in several countries; e.g., review of Ethiopia’s Productive Safety Nets Programme yields benefits 29 times greater than the cost of research. Natural Resource Property Regimes: Strengthened strategy of commercialization for in situ conservation of biodiversity. Research Proposition Our ability to provide food for a growing world depends critically on the policies, institutions, and markets that underpin the agricultural system. This is the domain of PIM. PIM’s work falls within 7 flagship projects (foresight modeling, science policy, sustainable intensification, policy and public spending, value chains, social protection, and natural resource property regimes). These, taken together, are essential for the success of CGIAR’s effort to reduce poverty, improve food security, improve nutrition and health, and steward essential natural resources. Partners use PIM’s research findings to revise policies, strengthen programs, change public spending, reform legislation and regulations, and strengthen local institutions to support sustainable shared growth. Lessons Expected application of results should be included at research design stage; use of PIM decision tree and partnership template facilitates. Opportunities 1. Collaboration with CRPs, Centers, and partners; e.g., foresight modeling 2. Greater geo-spatial referencing of data and inclusion in flagship projects; e.g., sustainable intensification and adoption of technology. 3. Integrating activities under separate flagships at the country level to set priorities and sequence policies. Gender PIM’s gender strategy was approved on March 1, 2013. PIM’s work addresses questions related to gender imbalances in access to assets, technology, markets, and support services, gender differentials in agricultural productivity and incomes, and distributional impacts of technological and institutional innovations. Partners: Participating Centers: Bioversity, CIAT, CIMMYT, CIP, ICARDA, ICRAF, ICRISAT, IFPRI (lead), IITA, ILRI, WorldFish Research Partners: Universities, NARS, SROs, national statistical agencies. Implementation Partners: Multi-lateral development agencies, bilateral development agencies, national ministries and public officials, NGOs, CBOs, farmer organizations.
