CIAT’s strategic initiative on Sustainable Food systems
ISPC asking A4NH for more action-oriented technical research regarding VCN beyond theoretical frameworks
CIAT now part of A4NH’s Flagship on Value Chains for Nutrition (VCN). Budget allocation of 470k of W1/2 budget for 2015, implemented in Kenya, Uganda.

Value Chains for Nutrition & Food Security (VCN)

  1. 1. Value chains for Nutrition & Food Security (VCN) APR Palmira, 23 June 2015 Matthias Jäger www.ciat.cgiar.org Since 1967 / Science to cultivate change
  2. 2. CIAT’s strategic initiative on Sustainable Food systems ISPC asking A4NH for more action-oriented technical research regarding VCN beyond theoretical frameworks CIAT now part of A4NH’s Flagship on Value Chains for Nutrition (VCN). Budget allocation of 470k of W1/2 budget for 2015, implemented in Kenya, Uganda Strong donor interest to test “interventions along the entire agricultural value chain to increase the availability and access of more affordable, safe and nutritious foods for vulnerable consumers by linking smallholder farmers and their associations to markets through inclusive business models and reducing postharvest losses”.

  8. 8. Ongoing projects related to VCN analysis (step 1) • “Understanding value chains that supply nutrient dense foods to urban and peri-urban consumers in Kenya and Uganda through informal markets” (A4NH) • “Informal markets for poverty reduction and food security: Exploring policy options in Nicaragua and Honduras” (Ford Foundation) • “Cali – Better Food” (Ford Foundation) • Total: 1M USD
  9. 9. Projects in the pipeline related to VCN interventions (step 2) • “Making value chains work for food and nutrition security of vulnerable populations in East Africa” (BMZ large grant, Germany) • “Securing nutrients along the bean-based value chains in Zambia and Malawi” (IDRC Canada, led by McGill) • “Optimizing nutrition outcomes through agricultural investments in beans value chain in Burundi, Ghana, Zimbabwe” (IFAD) • “Food system policies and market innovations for non- communicable disease prevention in Colombia” (IDRC Canada, led by Universidad Javeriana) • “How can informal food value chains ensure sustainability of Territorial Food Systems in Vietnam?”(Carasso Found.) • TOTAL pipeline: aprox. 7M USD (5M CIAT share)
  10. 10. • The goal of our nutrition sensitive value chain work at CIAT is to improve the diets of vulnerable rural and urban consumers, • This will be achieved through increased consumption of more diverse, safe, and nutrient-dense foods sourced from multiple crops and delivered through market-based solutions • Current VC concepts and frameworks will be enriched by a stronger consumer focus, particularly on nutrition and health. • CIAT’s work on VCs for Nutrition provides a framework that will leverage PABRA’s work by generating and documenting solid evidence of how interventions along the target value chains (food basket approach) impact on income generation and nutrition security. • Challenges: Communication, clarification of roles and responsibilities, high transaction costs Take Home Messages
