  1. 1. CPWF innovations  CPWF innovations and adoption processes Alain VIDAL, CPWF DirectorTonya SCHÜTZ, CPWF Information and Knowledge ManagerTonya SCHÜTZ CPWF Information and Knowledge Manager
  2. 2. Global food crisis: a poverty “countdown” t “ td ” 3 billion poor below US$2.5/day 3 billion poor below US$2.5/day 2 billion suffer from malnutrition 1 billion suffer from hunger  1 billion suffer from hunger 75% of them are rural poor Alleviating hunger means reducing rural poverty Alleviating hunger means reducing rural poverty Reducing rural poverty Increase the income of the rural poor to enable  Increase the income of the rural poor to enable investment Ensure they can cope with short term and long Ensure they can cope with short‐term and long‐ term changes
  3. 3. The resilience challenge The resilience challenge Food production communities and ecosystems  ood p oduct o co u t es a d ecosyste s should be able to cope with local and global  changes (climate, economy, demography,  migrations…), ie become more resilient Achieved through improved water  productivity (more food with less water) (more food with less water)  together with empowerment, equity,  market access, health and ecosystem services 3
  4. 4. CPWF aims to increase the resilience of social and  ecological systems through better water management  for food production Through its broad partnerships, it conducts research  that leads to impact on the poor and to policy change 4

  11. 11. Sourcebook Production S b k P d ti A compendium of best practices, approaches, concepts  di fb i hand theories on a particular topic taking information and  packaging it in a way that it is accessible to different  packaging it in a way that it is accessible to different target audiencesThe term sourcebook is used about many different kinds of bookssuch as collections of core articles (i.e., anthology), bibliographies,biographies, printed archival sources, directories and so on. Thereseems to be no consensus in the application of this term (From term.wikipedia)
