Just a quick warning: this meat consumprion is one of the drivers or stressors of Water, Finance and FS.
Can IFAd do Financing and FS all by itself? Of course not. Demand far outstrips capacities to mobilize and use effectively and efficiently.Would GWP constitute an able or the most able partner? We simply do not know yet and would like to prime your discussions with some uneasy questions any future ally may ask when engaging with a new partner.

GWP and Financing Water and Food Security: Some uneasy questions <br />From IWRM policy dialogue to plans to action to impact (‘more MDGs per drop’) – have GWP competencies grown in pace with accountability on benefit flows and equity expectations re rural poverty reduction?<br />Food Security a competitive and crowded market – comparative advantage of GWP ?<br />Financing W4FS under public and private finance under stress – what credibility and track performance can GWP demonstrate, or build up with new partners ?<br />In Africa, Food Security is largely about rain-fed agriculture and livestock – how is this reflected in GWP competencies? Rain-fed farming is underfunded - can expertise be developed competing with more established GWP ‘competitors’? <br />Innovation and Knowledge management for W4FS – what does GWP do differently from and more successfully than others how to scale up and link GWP to locally operating/relevant Communities of Practice (and vice versa) ?<br />
