Sentinel landscapes – criteria to optimise needs across CRP6 components


Published on

This brief presentation on criteria to optimise needs across CRP6 components for sentinel landscapes formed part of the CRP6 Sentinel Landscape planning workshop held on 30 September – 1 October 2011 at CIFOR’s headquarters in Bogor, Indonesia. Further information on CRP6 and Sentinel Landscapes can be accessed from and respectively.

Sentinel landscapes – criteria to optimise needs across CRP6 components

  1. 1. CIFOR, 1 October 2011THINKING beyond the canopy
  2. 2. CGIAR Research ProgramProposal available at: tium%20Research%20Program%206.pdf THINKING beyond the canopy
  3. 3. Criteria 1 Purpose – describing and understanding patterns of change Funded – or to be funded? (typical 3-4 year cycles vs 10-15 year minimum commitment) Research and/or development (linked to funding and donor evaluation criteria) Use existing sites (IMFN, IFRI, ASB, MAP, AfriTron, CIRAD et al.) Extend timescales by using historical evidence more effectively THINKING beyond the canopy
  4. 4. Criteria 2 Minimum # of CRP6 components? Physical, biological and socioeconomic characteristics Governance regimes – to include weak/fragile states? Geographic representation – to include regional approaches? (cf. drivers of deforestation – Gibbs et al. 2010) Scale and flexible boundaries (plot size 0.1 – 500,000 ha) - global value chains Defining baselines THINKING beyond the canopy
  5. 5. Criteria - Process Buy in – to include budgetary buy-in? Joint conceptualisation and planning – from the outset Institutional entry point(s) Markets as institutions – global reach Logistics – infrastructure, access and security Data sharing protocols Learning from CCAFS (31 sites) What can be done? Impact pathways and partnerships THINKING beyond the canopy
