Versatile Policymaking for Agriculture, Water Resources and Climate Change Designing Policies that can Adapt to a World of Uncertainty, Change and Surprise COP 11, Montreal 9 December 2005

Slide 2

Why Study Adaptive Polices?

Slide 3

The world\'s poor are most vigorously dependant on agro-biological administrations, and most powerless against breaking down natural conditions, intensified however not really made by environmental change [IPCC, 2001]. Key point: basic effects and vulnerabilities are in farming and water assets

Slide 4

The subtle elements are, be that as it may, mysterious: worldwide and provincial viewpoints

Slide 5

The Need: late IDRC investigate [Moench et al, 2003] "When circumstances are portrayed by inconstancy, instability and change, ordinary arranging situations give little direction with respect to future needs and conditions." "Particular arrangements are less essential than the presence of procedures and systems that empower answers for be distinguished and actualized as particular imperatives and connections change." Civil flight approach of Netherlands: extension of Schiphol airplane terminal "On the off chance that we could foresee the future precisely, favored strategies could be recognized on a fundamental level by basically inspecting the future that would take after from the execution of every conceivable strategy."

Slide 6

Project Research Premise the versatile limit and strength of groups is a basic perspective in the move to economical advancement… and one of the critical figures building versatile and flexible groups is for people in general arrangements, which impact the conduct of groups, to themselves be versatile and strong to vulnerability, change and astonish. Look into Hypothesis Policies and instruments that are versatile have particular attributes and components that make them versatile These qualities and systems are inadequately comprehended at both a functional and hypothetical level.

Slide 7

Project Goal To propel the comprehension of versatile arrangements and approach instruments to help government farming and water asset policymakers at the nearby, state and elected levels to outline versatile strategies – approaches that have the accompanying qualities: Robustness - the capacity to be viable under a scope of foreseen conditions. Flexibility - the capacity of an approach instrument to react well to unforeseen conditions and more term change. Adjusted from Walker, W.E., S.A. Rahman, and J. Buckle 2001. Versatile strategies, approach investigation, and strategy making. European Journal of Operational Research 128: 282-289.

Our Current Conceptual Thinking Rules and Delivery Policy Implementation Policy Design Objective Setting Operation Instrument Rules Instrument Delivery Monitoring & Evaluation Staff Training Delivery System Development Instrument Design Understanding the Issue Monitoring, Evaluation & Improvement Learning & Improvement Idealized delineation of strategy outline and usage

Slide 9

Adaptability Via Monitoring, Learning and Improvement Others\' activities Unforeseen occasions Changing inclinations Stage Setting Walker et al. (2001) Assembling a Basic Policy Reassessment Certain Mitigating activities Vulnerabilities Triggers Corrective activities Hedging activities Uncertain Defensive activities Signposts from Walker, W.E., S.A. Rahman, and J. Give in 2001. Versatile strategies, arrangement investigation, and approach making. European Journal of Operational Research 128: 282-289.

Slide 10

Adaptability Via Defining Characteristics Examples: Ensure that social capital stays in place (Ruitenbeek and Cartier 2001). Make open door for self-association and construct systems of corresponding communication that encourage trust and collaboration (Berkes et al. 2003; Glouberman et al. 2003; Axelrod and Cohen 2000) Promote variety and excess (Berkes et al.; Glouberman et al.) Combine experiential and test learning (Berkes et al.)

Insights from Case Study Research – Canada\'s Crow Rate War Measures Act Suspends Crow Rates Crow Rates Restored for Grain and Flour Western Grain Transportation Act ended Manitoba Government Requests Change: Crow Rtes put into Railway Act as "statutory grain rates" Crow Rates ended and supplanted with Western Grain Transportation Act Crow Rates stretched out to westward fare grain dispatched to west drift Temporary most extreme cargo rate period closes All maker installments finished Crow\'s Nest Pass Act Crow Rates reached out to rapeseed and flaxseed. 1897 1903 1919 1922 1925 1927 1946 1961 2001 1984 1996 Period of income misfortune for railroads starts a tie of studies to comprehend the issue Lower than expected expansion since Inflationary period because of weights of First World War time value controls lifted Substantial drop in grain costs Sources: Excerpts from Rothstein (1989); Earl (1996); Schmitz et al. 2002)

Slide 12

Insights from Case Study Research – Canada\'s Crow Rate High Flexibility 1984-1996 Robustness (capacity to manage a scope of conditions through prudence) 1897 1925-1984 Low Flexibility Adaptability (the ability to perceive a critical change in conditions, decipher and gain from the data, and roll out fundamental improvements)

Slide 13

India Case Study Research – Background Vulnerability of Indian horticulture to environmental change Poor protection infiltration - casual part avoided Rural credit – obligation – neediness Variation amid 1960-82 of (a) rice yield over the Indian locale (b) add up to sustenance grain creation (c) all-India precipitation (Source: Gadgil 1996)

Slide 14

Insights from India contextual investigation scrutinize: Evolution of harvest protection Farm pay protection conspire National agribusiness protection plot Comprehensive product protection conspire Higher premiums (appropriation for little ranchers to be eliminated) Option of higher hazard for higher premium Extended to non-loanee agriculturists Commercial harvests included For wheat and paddy To supplant NAIS Pilot trim protection conspire Insurance connected to transient credit 2% premium, endowment for little ranchers Basic rainfed foodgrains secured Weather filed protection Experimental yield protection conspire Experimental individual plan Very poor scope of ranchers Very low premium to cases proportion MFIs, SHGs, town web stands Coverage and monetary feasibility still an issue 1972 1984 1985 1978 1991 2004 1997/8 1999 2001 2003 1979 IRDA Act Entry of private and outside players Economic changes Green Revolution High level team AIC assumes control from GIC Working gathering for Xth Plan

Slide 15

Insights from India contextual analysis inquire about Crop protection vigorous by definition: manages scope of climate conditions Problems: scope, budgetary practicality, unfriendly choice Long postponements in installment of cases Small and negligible agriculturists miss out Weather ordered protection MORE powerful Minimizes unfavorable determination No compelling reason to draw up and screen singular contracts Protects general salary as opposed to yield of particular harvest Improves agriculturists\' hazard profile and access to bank credit Quick payouts can enhance recuperation times Important part for smaller scale back organizations Need for institutional sponsorship Adaptability Periodic survey and change of harvest protection Weather protection gaining from pilot plans

Slide 16

Future Activities Community - level research Conducted in India by TERI and Canada by IISD To distinguish the attributes and components of approach instruments that can adjust to shocks and more term changes Synthesis Paper No.1 (accessible April 2006).
