Call for CNs for CCAFS Flagship 2: Climate Information Services and Climate-Informed Safety Nets

Jim Hansen, CCAFS Theme 2 Leader

Mobilizing a CGIAR Agricultural Insurance Research Community

IFPRI, Washington, DC, USA

20-22 January 2014

what is different about flagships
What is different about “Flagships?”
  • CGIAR funding mechanism fully competitive
  • Bidding on development Outcomes, not research outputs
  • Competition open to non-CGIAR institutions (partially)
  • New incentives:
    • Cross-CGIAR collaboration
    • External partnerships
    • “Knowledge-to-action”
vision and targets
Vision and Targets
  • Vision: Livelihoods of farmers across Asia, Africa and Latin America are supported by effective climate information services, and protected by timely and well-targeted food security safety nets.
  • Targets:
    • 2018: 5 major international or national food system organizations using CCAFS science outputs to manage the impacts of climatic extremes on food security.
    • 2024: climate services and safety net interventions enhance climate resilience and adaptive capacity of 10M farmers, >50% women, in CCAFS regions.
components
Components
  • Climate-based methods and tools for seasonal agricultural prediction and early warning
  • Knowledge and methods for designing and implementing equitable climate information and advisory services for smallholder communities
  • Food security safety nets and policy interventions for dealing with impacts of climate-related shocks
  • Knowledge and methods to design and target equitable weather-related insurance programs that benefit smallholder communities
parameters
Parameters

Indicative budget (US$ million)

parameters1
Parameters
  • Budget
    • Flagship 2 ~$6 - 7M annually, ramping up (we hope)
    • Roughly 20% - 30% - 25% - 25% allocation between components
    • Per project ~$250k – 1M annually
  • Time line
    • Concept notes due 1 March
    • Concept note evaluation March-April
    • Development of full proposals: third quarter(?)
    • Funding starts 2015
    • Fully competitive when PPAs end in 2016
concept notes
Concept notes
  • Specify development outcome and research outputs
  • Requested CGIAR funds between $250k and $1M/year
  • Four-year implementation (2015-2018)
  • Two-year commitment, renewal based on performance and available funds
  • Prescribed 4-page template
  • Open, but partners must include CGIAR Center(s)
  • Concept notes are the basis for yes/no decisions.
evaluation
Evaluation
  • Delphi process, with portfolio-level adjustments
  • Criteria:
    • Delivery of Outcomes (25%)
    • Alignment with CCAFS theory of change and regional priorities (20%)
    • Value for money (15%)
    • Demonstrated capacity and partnerships (20%)
    • Innovation (10%)
    • Attention to cross-cutting issues (10%)
what i am looking for in component 4
What I am looking for in Component 4
  • Compelling development outcomes
    • Scale
    • Evidence of likelihood
  • Insurance applications that make sense
    • Function of insurance specified (w.r.t. climate-resilient agricultural development)
    • Connected to other aspects of development, adaptation
  • Partnerships exploit cross-Center synergies and relevant external partners, provide needed capacity
  • Connect to major global index insurance initiatives
  • Builds on other parts of CCAFS, as relevant
what would help you today
What would help you today?
  • Opportunity to share current state of concepts
  • Peer evaluations
  • Breakout discussions with CCAFS and external resource people:
    • Theme 2 / Flagship 2 leadership (Jim, Kevin)
    • Regional Program leadership (Pramod, James, Leo, Abdoulaye, Deissy)
    • Dan Osgood, Helen Greatrex
  • Breakout discussions with scientist from your Center and (potential) partner Centers
