Published on

The Global Futures and Strategic Foresight (GFSF) team met in Rome from May 25-28, 2015 to review progress towards current work plans, discuss model improvements and technical parameters, and consider possible contributions by the GFSF program to the CRP Phase II planning process. All 15 CGIAR Centers were represented at the meeting.

  1. 1. Global Futures and Strategic Foresight: Update for Team Meeting Steven Prager – Integrated Modeling Decision and Policy Analysis, CIAT – Cali, Colombia GFSF Team Meeting – 25-28 May 2015 Rome
  2. 2. Highlights • Update on key crops – Where we’re at with beans, rice and cassava. • Methodological side issues – Turning ALC into a virtual greenhouse. – Understanding SSPs from a regional perspective. – Side Project 1: distributional equity with ROI. – Side Project 2: efficient portfolios of technology. • Current and pending…
  3. 3. Beans Priority Setting Cultivar Identification Tech Specification Global Crop Modeling Heat and drought -  Calima, Carioca, ICTA- OSTUA, BAT 1289 -  Nearing completion. In process.
  4. 4. Rice Priority Setting Cultivar Identification Tech Specification Global Crop Modeling Heat and drought -  Fedearroz2000 Fedearroz60 Fedearroz174, CIRAD409 -  Nearing completion. In process.

  6. 6. Cassava • Model currently in development – DSSAT Sprint, field validation. • Modeling emphasis currently planned around value chains and various policy scenarios.
  7. 7. Cassava Value Chains • Gender issue – certain technology changes have sizable gender consequences (e.g., easier to peel) and also value chain implications (need for tighter value chain). – Take home: technologies have different effects depending on the lens used to look at the tech.
  8. 8. Some Methodological Side-Projects • Understanding regional appropriateness of cultivar choices and relative performance of implemented technologies. • Regional emphasis also raised the question as to how well regions and individual countries line up with SSPs. • In several of our stakeholder interactions, equity of distribution of benefits came up. Led to equity of technology adoption side-study. • Additionally, stakeholder interactions led to interest in understand potential for analysis of portfolios…
  9. 9. Analyzing Crop Technology We wanted to be able to justify the selection and specification of crop models (i.e., cultivars and tech implementation). Idea is to test how different models run across a selection of different latitudinal, elevation and climate gradients. Similar to methodology used in CropLife report, with minimal variation in assumptions regarding soils, fertilizers, etc. Currently hoping to wrap up crop modeling piece and moving on to analysis.
  10. 10. Regional Analyses • Mapping SSPs to regional realities and individual countries is a challenge. • Colombia has 3 FPUs…

  12. 12. (Re)Interpretation of Black-Scholes-Merton parameters in the agricultural R&D context
  13. 13. Recent Visible Work Products • Bean priority setting paper – Agronomia Colombiana (national peer reviewed journal) – DAPA blog entry on beans complete. • Rice priority setting poster – The Rice Conference (regional mtg in Brazil) • Foresight Modeling Workshop @ CIAT – Science Innovation Marketplace activity during our APR (pending).
  14. 14. Less Visible Products • Bean cultivar analysis & report • Rice cultivar analysis & report • Rice research priority analysis & report
  15. 15. In progress: Towards impact (with IMPACT)… • Understanding the role crop improvement in the context of climate change: A case study of drought tolerance in beans and rice in Colombia – Study being developed from our with GFSF and IDB for a volume being produced for Colombia Bank of the Republic
  16. 16. Related activities… • IFPRI LED Work in Colombia – I would like to ask that the GFSF team at CIAT be involved in this given our relationships with MADR, MADS, etc. – It’s IMPACT related, its Colombia related, and ultimately linked to forages (our final mandate group). • UFL Project: Next generation plant breeding and modeling. – CIAT has been asked to coordinate CG activities and contribution. We have been promoting integration of IMPACT and foresight modeling in this effort, building on existing synergies with UFL/IFPRI/others. • We have databases of subnational estimates of yield in beans and rice (and some cassava) for much of ALC. – Useful for IPRs?
