2011 ICRAF Science Week - overview

  1. 2. Monday <ul><li>Welcome? </li></ul><ul><li>who-is-who? </li></ul><ul><li>why-are-we-here? </li></ul><ul><li>what-to-expect-this week? </li></ul>light serious light serious light serious light serious light serious
  2. 3. Who joined ICRAF when Bjorn was DG? Who joined ICRAF when Pedro was DG? Who joined ICRAF when Dennis was DG? Who will join ICRAF while Tony is DG?
  3. 5. The Terminalia in ‘ICRAF House’ was the first sign that 2011 is a year of change… Maybe the tree was too old Maybe the tree was neglected Not all change is bad, we save on cleaning service costs
  4. 6. Tree planting is a nice symbolic act, but we ran out of space
  5. 7. Objectives for Science Week 2011, World Agroforestry Centre 1. Be a global networked science organization for at least 1 week per year: explore new links, new ideas, bonding, new impact pathways 2. Welcome close partners and show them the kitchen & how we cook 3. Get new ideas on big-picture science 4. Share our work, get critical feedback in peer groups 5. Manage the input/output ratio: winning proposals and manuscripts accepted after peer review 6. Methods&disciplines: update yourself, know cutting edge in your field 7. Better understand the GRP/CRP framing of research approaches, partnerships & impact pathways 8. Get ready for 360 0 M&E: clarify and test assumptions of theory of change (ex ante impact model) while producing agreed outputs, helping output/outcome processes and ex-post impact studies 9. Organizational housekeeping 10. Celebrate DG transition
  6. 10. ICRAF’s website shows we have a few challen-ges with our ‘manage-ment team’….
  7. 11. How can you tell the differences between (fe)male?
  8. 12. <ul><li>Female has a cub under its paw; male has a ball; (Read: female takes care of the next generations while male has fun playing soccer) </li></ul>
  9. 14. REALU architecture is explored in Indonesia, Viet Nam, Peru and Cameroon (clockwise from upper left)
  10. 15. Deforestation is often measured in ‘football fields per hour’; is football compatible with avoided deforestation? For example, “ Amazon destruction has accelerated to record levels, according to figures released by the Brazilian government. The annual rate has reached 26,130 square km, the second highest ever - an area equivalent to about six football fields a minute are destroyed. http://www.greenpeace.org/international/news/amazon-destruction But what if the world wants to play football, can it be done without deforestation?
  11. 16. Keeping trees (or at least palms…) in football fields does not reduce the fun, and may help reduce C emissions
  12. 17. <ul><li>Female has a cub under its paw; male has a ball; (Read: female takes care of the next generations while male has fun playing soccer) </li></ul><ul><li>Female is always positioned in the right side; (Read: female is always right ) </li></ul>
  13. 18. Imaginary Orchards by Lin Wenjia (8 Fuzhou) UNEP Chinese Children’s Environmental Education Programme Itinerant Painting Exhibition Can Ramni help to turn this to reality?
  14. 19. <ul><li>Domestication, utilization and conservation of superior agroforestry germplasm. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximizing on-farm productivity of trees and agroforestry systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Improving tree product marketing and extension for smallholders. </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing land health risks and targeting agroforestry interventions to enhance land productivity and food availability. </li></ul><ul><li>Improving the ability of farmers, ecosystems, and governments to cope with climate change. </li></ul><ul><li>Developing policies and incentives for multi- functional landscapes with trees that provide environmental services. </li></ul>
  15. 20. Trees as commodity Humid forests & their margins Dry forests & their margins Mangroves Watershed forest & trees Forests, trees & climate mitigadaptation Fruits trees & medicinals Forest institutions, markets for forest & AF products In 2011 ICRAF entered a ‘CRP-world’, in the refor-med CGIAR. This differs from busi-ness-as-usual, but can be accomo-dated in our structure.... CRP3 Commodities CRP1.1 DryAES CRP1.2 WetAES CRP1.3 Aquatic CRP2 Instit.ns CRP4 Health CRP5 Water& land CRP7 C.Change CRP6 Forest-Tree-AF

  17. 22. Meadow 1996 2006 Fallow XP 2011 Vineyard Land cover change…. 3101 Fremont Drive, Sonoma, California, United States 10% TREE cover in agricultural lands… Enough to qualify as forest?
  18. 23. Two centres separated by an ..uncommon forest … definition Two countries separated by a common language
  19. 24. Rational integration with a human face?
  20. 25. Is it fusion? Did it reach ‘ critical mass’?
  21. 26. … and explode?
  22. 27. Recursion or evolution?
  23. 28. The whole is more than the sum of the parts? But can it walk?
  24. 29. Beauty of collaboration?
  25. 30. Active science, with effective support functions Scientists come at the end of ‘divide and rule’ BOT CEO CRP/Centres
