Review of approach and discussion of generic method for other CPW&F BFPs

The Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPW&F)

Aims to catalyze increases in agricultural water productivity as a means to poverty reduction and improving food, health and environmental securities.

Runs over 30 projects in 9 river basins: (Andes, Sao Francisco, Volta, Limpopo, Nile, Karkheh, Indo-Gangetic, Mekong and Yellow River)

Needs generic tools to identify intervention points to achieve Aim


CPW&F GECAFS/IGP Project other CPW&F BFPs

Developing a generic methodology for BFPs

  • Aiming for guidelines and advice on best approach for other BFPs on how to:

    • provide an integrated framework for assessing the relationships among water and food systems, at a basin scale.

    • help develop appropriate interventions to alleviate vulnerability to water-related stress or problems.


Objectives for CPW&F BFP funding to GECAFS IGP other CPW&F BFPs

  • Improve understanding of the vulnerability of food systems, and hence food security, to interactive socio-economic and environmental stresses induced by GEC, notably those stresses that relate to water and water management.

  • Document food systems and analyse the interactions with water stress and water management in five case study sites across the IGP.

  • 3. Develop a methodology for basin-scale analysis based on analysing the diversity of food systems and their vulnerability to water stress in diverse case studies.


GECAFS IGP Research Approaches other CPW&F BFPs

Activities:

  • Review literature on food systems and their vulnerability to water stress and water management problems, with particular attention to how food system vulnerability affects food security.

  • Develop a conceptual and analytical framework for analyzing the vulnerability of food systems to water stress and water management problems, with particular attention to the consequences for food security and poverty.

  • 3. Apply the above framework and methodologies to describe food systems and to analyse their vulnerability to water stress induced by GEC and other factors, including water management, in five case study sites in the IGB.


GECAFS IGP Research Approaches other CPW&F BFPs

Activities:

  • Review literature.

  • How easy was it to find (best sources?) literature on:

    • Food System Activities and food security Outcomes

    • Food system vulnerability to water stress

    • Food system vulnerability affects on food security

  • What are the best units for reporting FS Activities and Outcomes?


GECAFS IGP Research Approaches other CPW&F BFPs

Activities:

  • 2. Develop a conceptual and analytical framework.

  • How effective is the conceptual and analytical framework for analyzing the vulnerability of food systems to water stress and water management problems?

  • What further information, in addition to that obtained during the literature survey, is needed for a vulnerability analysis and how was it obtained?

  • How is the vulnerability framework best used to assess the consequences for food security?


GECAFS IGP Research Approaches other CPW&F BFPs

Activities:

  • Apply the above framework and methodologies.

  • How robust is the “GECAFS” understanding of “Food Systems” in describing food systems across differing case studies?

  • How can this best be used to analyze the vulnerability of food systems to water stress and water management problems?

  • How effective was the procedure to identify appropriate case study sites?

  • How to contrast and integrate across those sampling sites to illustrate findings at the basin scale? [next discussion]
