Feed the Future Food Security Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research for Adapting Livestock Systems to Climate Change by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jun 18, 2013 05:15 PM
The US Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded the Livestock-Climate Change Collaborative Research Support Program (LCC CRSP) to Colorado State University in 2010. The LCC CRSP has its origins in the Global Livestock CRSP (GL CRSP) at UC Davis which ended in 2009. The new Livestock CRSP at CSU supports integrated research that helps small-scale livestock holders adapt to environmental and health impacts of climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.In 2013, USAID mandated a name change for all CRSPs. We are transitioning from a CRSP to a Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research for Adapting Livestock Systems to Climate Change.

Feed the Future Research by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jun 10, 2013 06:46 PM
Harnessing scientific innovation and technology in agriculture and nutrition is key to reaching Feed the Future’s core objectives of reducing global hunger, poverty and undernutrition. It's also critical to meeting the global challenges of producing more food with less land and water, improving nutrition, and helping farmers adapt to climate change. In May 2011, the U.S. Government released the Feed the Future research strategy, informed by a consultative process with USAID, USDA, university partners, and others stakeholders. Investments under this strategy range from longer-term research to address major global challenges to applied and adaptive research guided by host-country priorities for nearer-term impact.

USAID conducted initial analyses to identify opportunities for research to contribute to the agricultural goals of the Feed the Future strategy, and more than 50 experts were consulted during the strategy framing process. In February 2010, technical experts from the university, private sector, and U.S. Government research communities gathered to provide input on the criteria that should be used to guide research priority selection. The Research Strategy draft was subjected to an external review process by more than 20 experts from USDA, the CGIAR, U.S. universities, independent international agricultural consultants, and the private sector, and the draft was revised to respond to the comments.

In 1994 Claudine André created the association Friends of Animals in Congo, which later became Friends of Bonobos of Congo (les Amis des Bonobos du Congo - ABC) in 2002, when the Lola ya Bonobo Sanctuary was established (with 20 orphaned bonobos under their care). Lola ya Bonobo is the world's only bonobo sanctuary, and ABC is the only institution in the DRC that is officially authorized to receive bonobos confiscated by the Ministry of Environment or voluntarily turned over by their owners. Originally established to help provide refuge for bonobos rescued from the bushmeat and pet trades, ABC's programs have expanded in scope and scale over the years. Today ABC has an integrated bonobo conservation program that includes the rescue and rehabilitation of orphan bonobos at the sanctuary, environmental education activities in and around Kinshasa and within targeted bonobo habitat areas, as well as the world's first ever release of bonobos into the wild.
File To No Net Loss and Beyond: An Overview of the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) by Portal Web Editor — last modified Dec 06, 2013 05:36 PM
Recognizing that there was no clear and reliable way to answer the opening question “what is good enough?”, over 90 collaborators in the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) have developed a Standard on Biodiversity Offsets. The aim of the Standard is to help companies, lenders, governments, civil society and auditors navigate through the mitigation hierarchy and establish sustainable conservation programs to achieve no net loss or a net gain of biodiversity. It allows companies to assess and manage business risk and opportunity, compare their performance with peers in their sector and distinguish themselves from competitors. This overview document provides an introduction to the Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme, its work to date in helping companies meet these new challenges and opportunities, and ways to get involved. It is an update of the overview first published in 2009.

File Financial Crisis Impacts on Natural Resources and Biodiversity by Michael Colby — last modified Jan 18, 2014 02:05 PM
USAID/EGAT/ Economic Growth Office Technical Briefing, Volume V, #5, December 2008. Impacts of the on-going economic crisis for the NRM sector, bio-diversity, and competition over resources in general are likely to be mixed. However, government budget shortfalls in developing countries and straitened circumstances of households, especially poor households in rural areas, certainly will tend to have a negative impact on NRM. Coupled with ongoing massive losses from destruction of natural capital and ecosystem services to economies, this suggests consideration of increases in economic assistance for integrated NRM-EG-PR activities in developing countries during this period is warranted.

File Food Aid and Food Security in the Short and Long Run: Country experience from Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa by Stanzin Tonyot — last modified Jan 30, 2016 12:42 AM
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast the experiences from four major recipients of food aid (India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Zambia) in normal time and after a natural disaster and draw implications for the design of effective food aid and food security policies in Africa. The study summarizes the food and agricultural policies and medium-term outcomes regarding food production, trade, markets, consumption and safety nets, as well as the policy responses to food emergencies. The experiences of the study countries suggest that food aid that supports building of production and market enhancing infrastructure, is timed to avoid adverse price effects on producers, and is targeted to food insecure households can play a positive role in enhancing food security. However, food aid is not the only, or in many cases, the most efficient means of addressing food insecurity. In many cases private markets can more effectively address shortfalls in food availability and cash transfers may be a viable alternative to food transfers in-kind. Thus, most important is a balanced, mutually-reinforcing mix of policies and programs that address both the production and marketing constraints to food availability and that raises the real incomes of the poor and thereby increase their access to food.

Forest Trends' Communities Initiative (CI) partners with indigenous and traditional communities in their efforts to secure their rights, conserve their forests and improve their livelihoods and territorial governance. These communities play a key role in the global challenge of fighting climate change and saving the remaining forests from destruction. Deforestation rates in forests guarded by local and traditional communities are 11 times lower than surrounding areas. In the Brazilian Amazon, for example, indigenous communities manage 21.7% of the forests, which represent 27% of the carbon stocks in the region. Over 90% of the world's poorest people depend on forests and other ecosystems to secure their livelihoods and maintain their cultures. We focus in Latin America where 50% of the world's tropical forests remain, with 25% of these forests inhabited and guarded by indigenous and traditional communities. CI provides key information, capacity building and technical assistance so that communities can secure their rights, manage their forests and create economic livelihoods that strengthen their cultures and improve their livelihoods.

File GAP ANALYSIS OF TARGETED DOMESTIC NATURAL RESOURCE MARKETS IN LIBERIA by Adam Welti — last modified Apr 02, 2015 03:47 PM
The US Forest Service at the request of USAID/Liberia conducted a gap analysis of four key domestic natural resource markets in Liberia: timber, charcoal, bushmeat and other non-timber forest products (NTFPs). Given that Liberia’s forest is mostly perceived by Government of Liberia decision makers as valuable because of timber exports and potential conversion to large scale agricultural concessions, having an accurate estimate of the value of these associated resources is vital for effective management of natural resources in general. Within Liberia, however, there are robust national and subnational markets for timber, charcoal, bushmeat, and other NTFPs. These domestic markets impact the forests and biodiversity and contribute to the economy in ways that are poorly understood.

The Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE) is one of USAID’s largest and most prominent biodiversity conservation programs. As CARPE will enter its third phase in FY2014 a number of analyses were commissioned to inform the redesign, including a policy analysis and an institutional analysis. To date, a full gender analysis had not been carried out for CARPE although an excellent desk study with key informant interviews (Diamond 2002) provided guidance over the last decade. While gender analysis is required in project design, in this case there was also a need felt by both USAID/CARPE staff and existing partners to fully explore the issue: to document what CARPE has been doing; to consider gender dimensions of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus (REDD+) as CARPE III will start significant programming in this area; and most importantly to see how CARPE can contribute to Agency goals of gender equality and women’s empowerment in the challenging context of central Africa.

File Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors by Stanzin Tonyot — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:43 AM
Preface This book emerges from two separate, but intersecting, strands of work that began in the late 1980s, when the World Bank initiated a review of priorities for the control of specific diseases. The review generated findings about the comparative costeffectiveness of interventions for most diseases important in developing countries. The purpose of the cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) was to inform decision making within the health sectors of highly resource-constrained countries. This process resulted in the publication of the first edition of Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries (Jamison and others 1993). Also important for informing policy is a consistent, quantitative assessment of the relative magnitudes of diseases, injuries, and their risk factors. The first edition of Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries included an initial assessment of health status for low- and middle-income countries as measured by deaths from specific causes; importantly, the numbers of cause-specific deaths for each age-sex group were constrained by the total number of deaths as estimated by demographers. This consistency constraint led to downward revision of the estimates of deaths from many diseases. Published by the World Bank in 2006
