Project development And Program Design following the Tamale, Addis Ababa and Dar workshops Dar es Salaam, Tanzania workshop Feb 2012 Jerry Glover
High level impact: alignment, coordination, & integration Demand-driven: CAADP & country priorities Alignment with development partner investments & activities Prioritized alleviation of hunger & poverty Data assessment: prioritization, mngmt, M&E, impact...

Program purpose (version 3.0): Provide pathways out of hunger and poverty for small holder families, particularly for women and children, through sustainably intensified farming systems. ? Nutrition captured? ? Explicit links to drivers? – markets; population? Need a strong hypothesis; policies, land tenure implications? ?Where the numbers?
Production Processing Marketing Inputs and services Maize ProductionProcessing Marketing Inputs and services Horticulture Priority value chains provide starting points (for example:)

Program objectives (version 3.0): Identify demand-driven sustainable intensification options that are socially acceptable, economically feasible, and environmentally sound. Combine and adapt these options to address constraints and exploit opportunities. Evaluate their effectiveness at multiple scales. Catalyze ongoing sustainable farm intensification.
Program outcomes (version 3.0) Sustainable increase of whole farm productivity Improved on- and off-farm natural resource management Improved connectivity to and utilization of off-farm systems (e.g., markets, inputs suppliers) that support sustainable intensification Increased nutritional and economic levels of the target populations, especially women and children Reduced vulnerability and increased resilience of the target population and farming systems to adverse environmental and economic challenges.
Demand-driven R & D at multiple levels CAADP priorities – Africa owned and led (Countries, ASARECA, CCARDESA) Opportunities for the project to address issues that may arise over the medium- to long-term (anticipatory) Development partner priorities & allied activities (e.g., SIMLESA; Concern Worldwide-Zambia) Opportunities for greater impact Farmer priorities – options & decision making tools Opportunities for the project to address issues important to farmers in the near-term
