    Despite challenges in many river

    basins, overall the planet has

    enough water to meet the full range

    of peoples’ and ecosystems’ needs

    for the foreseeable future, but

    equity will only be achieved through

    judicious and creative management.

    This working paper reviews the experiences of the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) with 14 “small

    grants for impact” that were contracted in early 2006 and operated for periods of 12 to 18 months. For a total

    investment of under US$1 million – less than the equivalent of a typical 3-5 year CPWF research for development

    project in Phase 1, the small grant projects made significant contributions to identifying water and food technology

    for specific end users (thus showing the potential of CPWF research in general); to better understanding of

    IN response to an on-line survey, 76 project leaders and staff gave CPWF Phase 1 a

    generally favorable review. Respondents came from 68 CPWF projects in 45 countries on

    three continents. The survey sought to help learn what went well in Phase 1, what did not

    go so well and can be improved in Phase 2.

    Nearly three-quarters of respondents felt that they had achieved different research results,

    outcomes and impacts as a result of participation in the CPWF than otherwise possible from

    The CPWF was designed to be different. Developed in response to a call for change in a previous round of Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) system

    reform, the CPWF was intended to foster cross-CGIAR cooperation and find ways to bring in new partners. Over time the CPWF has successfully broadened the CGIAR’s sources of

    innovative research on water and food. Through its broad partnerships, the program conducts research that leads to positive impact on the poor and to policy change. The CPWF does this by

    This introductory section covers the period since the submission of the last Mid-Term

    Plan until present, and concentrates on the following areas:

    > Principal areas of progress.

    > Developments in 2005 and early 2006.

    > Changes to the CPMT strategic plan.

    > Research achievement highlights.

    > Program progress.

    At this point – just under half way (two years and six months) in the implementation

    of the first CPWF phase (and three-and-a-half years since inception began)

    This Medium Term Plan (MTP) is written as the CPWF transitions from its first Phase (2004?

    2008) to its second Phase (2009?2013). It describes the status of the CPWF as the newly

    The breadth and scope of the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food’s (CPWF) mandate is substantial. This research strategy attempts to define this mandate by reviewing and refining its objectives and principles, and by clearly defining the path that will be followed to achieve its goals.

    In addition, the strategy outlines the kinds of outputs expected.

    This Strategy will serve as an overall research guide for CPWF participants from 2005 to 2008

    At this point – just under half way (two years and six months) in the implementation of the first CPWF phase (and three years and eight months since inception began) governance and management processes are running smoothly, it is in reasonable financial health and technical processes – such as issuing new calls and obtaining reviews by our Expert Panel on Scientific Quality – are familiar, although they must be adjusted to each specific instance.
