  1. 1. IITA R4D Implication of CGIAR reform on research and operations
  2. 2. Future for IITA R4D Projects <ul><li>Summary of implications </li></ul><ul><li>CRP and IITA Programs </li></ul><ul><li>Challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>2011 as transition </li></ul>
  3. 3. Implication of changes in funding type new science, new R4D, partnerships, new donors R4D science and impact opportunities Key criteria for success with performance indicators with clear targets some use of performance indicators mainly science outputs, outcomes, impact key criteria for success yes and no not really accountability for funds formally need to include in planning and reporting increasing importance and formal informal Stakeholder feedback fully costed from projects some core/some projects fully costed from core Funds available for capacity building, infrastructure, collaborative activities such as technical assistance, networking, international trials, service, etc required important optional Partnership-Management Traditional, New, and Complex NARES, ARI, limited private sector, NGO NARS as beneficiaries Partnership-Who collaborative' with significant competition for cost, efficiency, and effectiveness Increasing competition competition with CGIAR donors Inter-Center Interactions framework own agenda and framework completely Center Strategic Agenda 100% restricted increasing restricted no restricted
