What is different about flagships

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
