Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Small Scale Irrigation

  1. 1. Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Small-Scale Irrigation Cooperative Agreement USAID - Discussion April 2, 2014
  2. 2. Introduction and Scope • Progress on FtF ILSSI Coop Agreement • Opportunities to scale up and out ILSSI • Potential Linkages with other FtF Innovation Labs • Addressing the broader USAID portfolio
  3. 3. Progress • Approval of Workplan and Budget • Desk Top paper - survey on small scale irrigation technologies • Stakeholder workshop for Ethiopia • Engagement with Africa Rising and LIVES • Second partner planning meeting • Bilateral meeting IDSS - IFPRI
  4. 4. Candidate Innovations • Low cost water lifting devices • Watershed management • Water recharge • In-situ water harvesting • Irrigated fodder • Drip irrigation (possibly)
  5. 5. Next Steps • Further stakeholder engagements • Meetings in Ghana and Tanzania • Closure on technology innovations • External advisory committee • Pilot study on application of IDSS • Training workshop on IDSS • Linkages with other FtF labs – Africa Rising • Annual meeting • Plans for year two
  6. 6. Integrated Decision Support System
  7. 7. Scale up and Scale Out: Biophysical and Economic Impacts • Link IFPRI Economic Models with IDSS – SPAM (Spatial Production Allocation Model) – DREAM (Dynamic Research Evaluation for Management) – EMM (Economy-wide Multimarket Model) • Biophysical Scales: – Field -> Farm->Watershed->River Basin->Country->Continent – APEX-> APEX-> SWAT -> SWAT -> SWAT -> SWAT • Economic Scales: – Farm -> Village/Kebele -> Region -> Country – FARMSIM-> FARMSIM -> DREAM/EMM -> DREAM/EMM
  8. 8. SWAT Crop Mix Change Optimized APEX PHYGROW NUTBAL EMM or DREAM FARMSIM SPAM GIS Ex Ante Analysis Village – Family – Gender Economics & Nutritional Impacts Price Changes Crop Yield Distribution IDSS – IFPRI Integration Technology & Location Identified Scale Up Regional/National Farm/Village/Household
  9. 9. Potential Linkages with other FtF Innovation Labs • Comprehensive IDSS/IFPRI models • Global natural resource and economic databases • Crops, livestock, soil and water resources, land use and climate change, technologies, environmental and economic impacts • Scalable from farm scale to continental scale • Buy-in possibilities for extending FtF ILSSI • Initial engagement with other innovation labs
  10. 10. Potential Linkages with other FtF Innovation Labs • Quantify impacts of climate change and climate- resilient germplasm and farming technologies on production, soil and water resources, and farm to regional economics (6 Innovation Labs) • Quantify impacts of technologies developed by collaborative research on crops and livestock (6 Innovation Labs) • Others?
  11. 11. Addressing the broader USAID portfolio • IDSS developed over years for USAID, USDA, EPA with substantial input from USAID, WB, CGIAR, and national programs • Applied to design, implement, operate mixed farming and water management systems • Accurately and cost-effectively predicts production, economic, human nutrition, and environmental impacts of interventions • Field, farm, watershed, national, and continental scales
  12. 12. Examples of ILSSI/IDSS Capabilities • APEX and SWAT: Dr. Raghavan Srinivasan – Small-scale water capture and irrigation of high- value crops in Ethiopia – Application to kebele and river basins in Ethiopia – Large-scale applications in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa • FARMSIM: Dr. James Richardson – Farm- to village-scale economics for decision makers -> regional and national projections
