Brief description of what is different from current institutional objectives.
55 pages of feedbackOutreach at select external events + workshop in Nairobi 9-11 August + Consultation with FORDA 1 September
How is this different from Business as Usual?
Each CRP6 component will be implemented by a Component Implementation Team (CIT):Scientists from participating centers and partnersResponsibilities include leadership, planning, reporting, implementation
The New CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees, and Agroforestry: Opportunities and Challenges” Friday, November 12th, 2010. 11.00 – 12.00pm, ICRAF Conference Hall
CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry<br />Challenges and Opportunities<br />ICRAF, Nairobi – November 12, 2010<br />
CGIAR strategic objectives<br />Create and accelerate sustainable increases in the productivity and production of healthy food by and for the poor <br />Conserve, enhance and sustainably use natural resources and biodiversity to improve the livelihoods of the poor in response to climate change and other factors<br />Promote policy and institutional change that will stimulate agricultural growth and equity to benefit the poor, especially rural women and other disadvantaged groups<br />
Aspirations<br />Impact-driven<br />Clear impact pathways<br />Dynamic communication of knowledge and solutions<br />Strategic partnerships to change policy and practice<br />Long-term, global comparative research <br />Potential “sentinel landscapes”<br />Integrated across scales, ecosystems and landscapes<br />Trees on farms to undisturbed forests <br />Species-level genetic diversity to global policy<br />Integrated across institutions, sectors and disciplines<br />
Illustrative impacts (1) <br />Research will target:<br /><ul><li>46% of global forest cover,
0.5 to 1.7 million ha of forest saved annually from deforestation.
Ecologically and socially sustainable production and management practices adopted in 9.3–27.8million ha of managed forests in target regions.
Carbon emissions reduced 0.16 to 0.68 Gt CO2 yr–1.</li></li></ul><li>Illustrative impacts (2)<br />2. Research will target approximately 500 million people living in or close to forests in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America.<br />Enhanced production and management options will benefit at least 3 million producers and traders and their families.<br />At least 2 million producers will benefit from increased conservation efforts related to tree diversity<br />Enhanced production and management technologies will raise tree, land and labor productivity of target groups by at least 50%<br />Incomes from forest and agroforestry products for target households will at least double<br />Accelerated availability of funding for climate adaptation programs will benefit an additional 60 million people<br />Increased efficiency of REDD+ will result in increased supply of REDD+ credits worth between US$108 million and US$2695 million per year.<br />Significant improvements in access to women of benefits provided through forests, trees and agroforestry; our ultimate aim is to ensure equal access to benefits by both genders<br />
Components<br />Smallholder production systems and markets<br />Management and conservation of forest and tree resources<br />Environmental services and landscape management<br />Climate change adaptation and mitigation<br />Impacts of trade and investment on forests and people<br />Increasing Scale<br />
Component 1Smallholder production systems and markets<br />Research themes: <br />Enhancing management and production systems for smallholders (food security and nutrition)<br />Increasing income generation and market integration for smallholders<br />Improving policy and institutions to enhance social assets to secure rights in forest- and tree-dependent communities<br />
Example of Component 1 research<br />ICRAF collaboration with Unilever, SNV, and IUCN on improving propagation, survival, and growth rates supported smallholders to plant 100,000 improved Allanblackia seedlings.<br />
Component 2Management and conservation of forest and tree resources<br />Research themes: <br />Understanding threats to important tree species and formulating genetic conservation strategies<br />Conserving and characterizing high-quality germplasm of important tree crops and their wild relatives<br />Developing improved silvicultural, monitoring and management practices for multiple use<br />Developing tools and methods to resolve conflicts over distribution of benefits and resource rights<br />
Example of Component 2 research<br />Improved timber harvesting practices could reduce 10% of total emissions linked to deforestation, and support multiple use of forests for NTFPs and biodiversity conservation.<br />
Component 3Environmental services and landscape management<br />Research themes:<br />Understanding drivers of forest transition<br />Understanding the consequences of forest transition for environmental services and livelihoods<br />Integrating at a landscape scale a network of “sentinel landscapes”<br />
Example of Component 3 research<br />Action research undertaken by CIFOR and ICRAF on co-management of forests between local communities and government in Guinea led to a decrease in the incidence of fire, improved wildlife habitat, and increases in local incomes.<br />
Component 4Climate change adaptation and mitigation <br />Research themes:<br />Harnessing forests, trees and agroforestry for climate change mitigation<br />Enhancing climate change adaptation<br />Understanding synergies between climate change mitigation and adaptation<br />
Example of Component 4 research<br />Joint CIFOR-CATIE research on tropical forests and climate change adaptation in Honduras influenced the design of one of the first projects ever approved by the UNFCCC’s Adaptation Fund Board<br />
Component 5Impacts of trade and investment on forests and people<br />Research themes: <br />Understanding the processes and impacts of forest-related trade and investment<br />Enhancing responses and policy options to mitigate the negative impacts and enhance the positive impacts of trade and investment<br />
Example of component 5 research<br />CIFOR’s research on Indonesia’s pulp and paper industry helped avert the loss of 135,000 hectares of natural tropical rainforest, valued at US$ 133 million in carbon emissions. <br />
Cross-cutting themes<br />Gender<br />Gender-disaggregated data collection<br />Gender-responsive partnerships, knowledge sharing and adaptive learning<br />Capacity-building<br />Assessing gaps relevant to research, policy and practice<br />Knowledge sharing and communications<br />Developing a learning community<br />Reaching out to policy makers and media<br />
