Activities 7 & 8 Sustainable Trading Relationships & Effective R4D Platforms July 11, 2013 MARK LUNDY CIAT
Sustainable trading relationships T3 / ST 3.1 / OP / OC 3.1.2, Under what conditions can business models be an effective tool for rural poverty reduction? Iterative process of development, testing and documentation of approaches and tools for inclusive business models in Latin America, E. Africa and S.E. Asia Methods: – Value chain analysis – Business model analysis / case studies – Equity / inclusivity analysis – All of the above through R4D platforms with development NGOs, CRP partners and private sector Outputs (3.1.5): – Prototype field guide assessed in LAC, E. Africa, S.E. Asia – Comparable empirical data sets – Cross analysis and publications
Sustainable trading relationships T3 / ST 3.1 / OP / OC 3.1.2, Where are we with this activity? Prototype field guide under testing with partners Field testing on-going in: – LAC: Peru (asparagus), Colombia (coffee), Nicaragua (dairy, beans, veggies) – E. & S. Africa: regional PABRA network, multiple countries (beans), others? – PENDING (staffing issues) – Adaptation for use in supply chains in Kenya, Indonesia & China – S.E. Asia: regional (cassava / forage-based systems), others in 2014 On-going issues: – Testing of baseline and impact assessment tools – Testing of monitoring and evaluation tools Inclusivity measures / New Business Model Principles / CIAT Business –model metrics / CIAT Trading Relationship Index / IIED, Oxfam & Unilever Progress out of Poverty Indices / Grameen Foundation – How to use elements of LINK for larger empirical analysis of existing programs
Effective R4D platforms T3 / ST 3.2 / OP / OC How can we build bridges to learn more effectively across the R and D boundary and deliver outcomes? Connect CRP 2 to existing relevant learning networks in LAC (2), Africa (2), and S.E. Asia (1) Methods: – Facilitation / participation in multi-stakeholder learning platforms – Facilitation of specific learning cycles on CRP 2 themes Outputs (3.2.4) – R4D platform facilitation methods – Collaboration with existing R4D platforms in LAC, Africa, S.E. Asia – Data collection on specific learning topics – Policy influence strategy
Where are we with this activity? Prototype field guide in layout Linkages established / strengthened with: – Central American Learning Alliance – Peru Learning Alliance – First workshop with ICARDA for MENA Learning Alliance (Morocco & ?) – Connections with Humidtropics on innovation platforms – Explorations with Ford Foundation & CRS for E. & S. Africa networks On-going issues: – Monitoring, evaluation & learning Moving down the impact pathway in Central America Building partner capacity in MEL Monitoring and evaluation tools for assessing R4D platforms – Expanding PIM R4D work to other CRPs in Central America (regional hub for economies of scale across CRPs) Effective R4D platforms T3 / ST 3.2 / OP / OC 3.2.1
Impact “To be considered an impact, CGIAR outputs must link to outcomes that reach at least 1 million people…” F. Rijsberman Cali, 2013
(Moving towards) Impact New Business Models / LINK tool – Borderlands (CRS / HGBF, CO & EC) – PROGRESA (CRS / USDA, NI) – Learning cycle on LINK (CRS, Swisscontact, VECO, CATIE / OPEC, NI & HN ) – SUNRISE 2.0 (Unilever, Oxfam / Kenya, Indonesia & India) – Productive Alliances (CIAT / Ford, World Bank, CO) R4D platforms – Learning Alliances in Central America, Peru, MENA, E. Africa, S.E. Asia (multiple partners & donors) As well as links to other CRPs on both topics….
Linkages with other CRPs 1 Humidtropics – CIAT leads SRT 2.1 on Policies, Institutions and Markets – Direct connections with PIM around VCA, business models and R4D platforms (innovation platforms) – Action Areas in Africa (W & E), S.E. Asia (Mekong) and Central America and the Caribbean
Policies, Institutions and Markets STRATEGIC RESEARCH THEME 2.1: Adebayo Abass, Anne Terheggen, Hikuepi Katjiuongua, Iheanacho Okike, Jo Cadilhon, Victor Afari Sefa, Wanjiku Chiuri and Mark Lundy
Expected Results 1. Identification of a broad basket of regionally specific crop and livestock options for sustainable intensification for rural women and men. 2. Value chain analysis and business model analysis to improve market linkages and outcomes for rural women and men. 3. Evidence-based incidence to improve public policy performance for rural women and men at the action site and action area scale.
Author: Lundy, 2013 SRT 2.1. Work flow at Action Site (proposed)
Geographical scope [approx. Nr of HHs] Impact pathway components Action Sites [representativ e of all HHs] Field Sites [1000’s of HHs] Action Area [several 100,000’s of HHs] Action Sites [10,000’s of HHs] Field Sites [1000’s of HHs] Action Area [several 100,000’s of HHs]
Linkages with other CRPs 2 Multi-CRP R4D platform in Central America (PIM, Humidtropics, CCAFS, Livestock & Fish, WLE, Forest & Trees…) Test-bed for CIAT PIM tool on R4D platforms Hypothesis: R4D economies of scale exist in: – Process facilitation – Monitoring, evaluation and learning – Knowledge management & incidence – Gender analysis Can this be a model for other regions?
Next steps New Business Models / LINK tool – Continued field testing of overall tools with emphasis on evaluation with BiNGOs & private sector (quantitative & qualitative). – Evaluate relationship between inclusivity and alliance performance empirical database in PAAP (N=557) R4D platforms – Piloting multi-CRP approach in CAC – Extension to MENA and Africa Activities with other CRPs on both topics….
