PIPA TIMELINE

Page history last edited by Cristina Lamb Guevara 6 years, 8 months ago

 

 

Note: Timeline is in process of being completed 

 

 

 

2005

 

The International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT - Spanish Acronym) conducted some ILAC funded work on innovation histories (Douthwaite and Ashby, 2005) as well as an evaluation on impact pathways in an integrated weed management project in Nigeria (Douthwaite et al., 2003 and 2007)

 

Participatory Impact pathways Analaysis (PIPA) grew from this work.

 

 

2006

 

PIPA was first used in Ghana during a three-day workshop, with seven projects funded by the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF).

During this workshop, each project co-constructed their respective impact pathways in order to help the CPWF better understand the types of impacts its teams were envisioning.

 

 

JANUARY (17th - 20th

Volta Basin Workshop in Ghana

 

CPWF Impact Assessment Project (IA Project) is part of the Basin Focal Project (BFP), an initiative which focuses on carrying out ex-ante impact assessment for CPWF's projects in its nine basins.

 

Other CPWF-BFP impact pathways workshops conducted this year include:

 

 

FEBRUARY (13th - 15th) :

Mekong River Commission Workshop in Laos

 

 

MAY (27th - 29th) :

Karkheh Basin Workshop in Iran

 

 

JUNE (19th - 21st) :

Yellow River Workshop in China

 

 

JUNE (30th June - 2nd July) :

Indo-Gangetic Basin Workshop in Nepal

 

 

OCTOBER (10th - 12th) :

Volta Scaling Workshop in Ghana

 

 


 

The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) construct impact pathways for their eight meta-projects, and they structure their 2008-2010 medium-term plan around PIPA.

 

DECEMBER (11th - 15th)

P1 & P2 Impact Pathways Workshop in México

 

 

 

2007

 

JANUARY

CPWF project and theme leaders write up stories showing the broad range of outcomes and impacts the CPWF is beginning to have. These stories - which highlight the productive results of impact pathways workshops - were compiled into the following report:

 

 

 


 

PIPA tools are adopted by an EU-funded project - the European-Latin American Project on Co-Innovation in Agricultural Ecosystems (EULACIAS) - for their project planning, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

 

 

MARCH (12th - 14th) :

EULACIAS Impact Pathways Workshop for Mexican case (UACh/CIAT)

 

 

APRIL (11th - 13th) :

EULACIAS Impact Pathways Workshop for Uruguayan case (FAGRO/CIAT)

 

 

AUGUST (15th - 17th) :

EULACIAS Impact Pathways Workshop for Argentinean case (INTA & CIAT)

 

 


 

NOVEMBER (15th - 17th) : 

Limpopo Basin - South Africa

 

 

 

 

2008

 

FEBRUARY 

The original PIPA framework is adapted and used for ex-post evaluation purposes in the Andean Change Alliance program.

 

The Andean Change - a learning alliance - partners the International Potato Centre (CIP) and CIAT, with regional organisations, with the purpose of promoting the use of participatory methods through case studies, and then using the evidence of its positive impact to formulate and implement public policies.

 

PIPA is applied to monitor and evaluate outcomes and impacts of all participatory methods across the Andean region (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia). Through their work, experience and reflections, the Andean Change further develops the methodology and create a guide (Delgado and Arevalo, 2009) which presents concepts and procedures to obtain evidence about the scope and impact of the application of participatory methodologies in agricultural innovation.

 

They produce a series of studies which document the efficacy of participatory methods for improving livelihoods of the rural poor. These results can be read in their final report (see June 2011) 

 

 


 

APRIL (30th - May 3rd) :

Second Call Projects - Thailand

 

 


 

MAY (10th - 12th) :

Nile Basin Workshop in Ethiopia

2009

 

APRIL (21st - 24th) :

Rice Postharvest Project - Viet Nam

 

 

 

MUSALAC

 

JUNE (5th - 6th) :

 

 

(this section is incomplete)

 

 

2010

 

NOVEMBER (24th - 26th) :

SASHA Value Chain Project - Rwanda

 

 

(this section is incomplete)

 

 

 

2011

 

JUNE

The Andean Change Alliance (CIP & CIAT) publishes their final technical report: 'National Agricultural Innovation Systems that Work for the Poor - Building on the Bolivian Experience', which serves to demonstrate the effectiveness of participatory local development methodologies in the Andean region in improving the livelihoods of poor people, and how such findings can be used in dialogue leading to pro-poor policy change. 

 

An overview of these findings can also be found summed up in the following slideshow: Impact Pathways for Impact Evaluation: The Case of Alliance for Andean Change (2007-2011)

 

 


 

 

CGIAR launches the Global Rice Science Partnership initiative (GRiSP) to help reduce poverty, boost food security and environmental sustainability by enhancing the ecosystem resilience of rice production systems. 

 

GRiSP places a strong focus on partnerships, and is guided by an evidence-based impact pathway. PIPA is part of their new impact pathway focus which aids to facilitate multi-stakeholder platforms.

 

OCTOBER (10th  - 12th) :
GRISP Workshop - Senegal

 

 

 

 

2012

 

(this part is incomplete)

 

 

 

2013

 

FEBRUARY (26th - 28th) :

The 'Impact Pathways for Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in South-East Asia' workshop is held in Dhaka, Bangladesh. 

In attendance are CCAFS, all the CGIAR research programs based in the region, as well as various South Asian agricultural department and meteorological agencies. 

 

 


 

APRIL (11th) :

Sophie Alvarez - Monitoring and Evaluation consultant at CIAT - is invited by USAID's Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) to present on the PIPA methodology at the 'Thought Leader in Learning' seminar.

 

 

 


 

 

CGIAR has launched the Livestock and Fish research program (L&F), which aims to increase the productivity of small-scale livestock and fish systems in sustainable ways, making meat, milk and fish more available and affordable to poor consumers across the developing world.

 

To help ensure the results of their work are brought to scale locally and globally, the CGIAR L&F program is using PIPA and conducting Impact Pathways workshops in each of their nine program target value chains.

 

So far, four workshops have taken place:

 

APRIL (23rd) :

Small Ruminant Value Chain - Ethiopia

 

 

MAY (7th - 8th) :

Dairy Value Chain - Tanzania

 

 

JUNE (27th - 28th) :

Pig Value Chain - Uganda

 

 

AUGUST (5th - 9th) :

Dual Purpose Livestock Value Chain - Nicaragua

 

 

 

to be mentioned? :

 

- PIPA & GENDER

- Projects that will be using PIPA (ASSETS project - Attaining Sustainable Services from Ecosystems through Trade-off Scenarios)
