CRP MAIZE: FP 5

  1. 1. Adding Value for Maize Producers, Processors and Consumers (FP5)
  2. 2. Adding Value for Maize Producers, Processors and Consumers (FP5) • To develop diverse novel and nutritious maize-based products for maize AFS; • To improve technology and knowledge for small-to medium-scale processors in maize AFS; • To reduce postharvest losses in maize AFS; and • To enhance livelihoods through maize and maize by-products for animal feed in maize AFS.
  3. 3. Why it was not included in current CRP phase? Adding Value for Maize Producers, Processors and Consumers (FP5) Enough support evidence that we have expertise on the Proposed actions
  4. 4. Adding Value for Maize Producers, Processors and Consumers Why we should work on it? 1. Changes in dietary patterns 2. Urbanization 3. Food losses 4. We are now working in Agri-food systems, that goes beyond “improved seed” 5. Aligns with CIMMYT strategic goal: “Enhancing nutrition, food safety and processing Quality”
  5. 5. Labor productivity Nutritional intake Health status Wealth prevalence Under-5 Mortality Underweight prevalence http://www.worldmapper.org Agriculture for nutrition, health and poverty alleviation
  6. 6. Revised strategy under current scenario Priorities: Objective Remarks 1. Identification and dissemination of dual purpose maize India Seed systems 2. Maize processing (Potential markets and value added) Nixtamalization Nutrient retention methods in maize-based foods 3. Post harvest Research on post-harvest methods and end-use quality and nutritional quality Need to build more evidence on research and impact
  7. 7. What can be done as part of other FPs? • Agri-food systems and nutrition and health • Post-harvest research questions on end-use and nutrition quality- Storability • Dual purpose maize identification, development and delivery • Food science to maximize micronutrient retention of biofortified maize • Socio-economic studies to identify future strategic directions for demand- driven maize research FP1 FP2 FP3FP4
  8. 8. BILATERAL PROJECTS Funding opportunities: 1. Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) Foundation: The ADM Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland Company, a global processor of animal feeds and biofuels. The Foundation awards grants to organizations that promote sustainable agricultural development, provide education for children and young adults, and encourage community engagement. 2. Nestle Foudation (trainning, pilot and full grant. Max 100K) 3. Addax and Oryx Foundation 4. Create a Food industry fund (Post-harvest, quality, local supply-market opportunities) 5. Large grant proposals to give to consideration to “traditional donors”- Gates… 6. Strong WP aligned with FP1, FP3 or FP4
  9. 9. Short term actions (No large budget requirements) 1. Seek In kind support from Universities/Institutions for review Papers “the nutritional aspects of maize agro-food systems” (CN 2016 not funded) or studies that do not require field work 2. Open day for Food/Feed industry at CIMMYT (in, Mexico, in India) and IITA to highlight work on post-harvest, dual-maize, processing+nutrition 3. Link more/better with ARIs for joint efforts to work on Nutrition, health and agriculture In LIC. 4. Task force to develop a strong proposal on Nutrition in agri-food systems. 5. Organize available training material and promote it
