RTB and CIAT Asia • Until late 2013, very little RTB funding for Asia • New support for Agronomy & Breeding, multidisciplinary support, gender • More links to Africa and Latin America • Increasing opportunities with the evolution toward larger, integrated “flagships”

Team Growth • Still a very small group of people. Focus is essential • Steep learning curve -- complexity and variability of local customs, politics, sensibilities • Balancing the special relationship with the host country and our regional roles

The Team Modus Operandi • Moving from project to programmatic mode – from a project management mentality to an integrated team • Taking advantage of CRPs as an opportunity to tie projects together, fill gaps • Integrated goals and strategies between HQ and regions • Ongoing coordination and communication

The Ownership of Ideas “I developed these ideas. They are mine. I know they are part of someone else’s work area, but I am not going to share them for developing a project idea.” The goal: Combining an institutional culture of team work with a recognition of individual creativity, drive, accomplishment

Crop Management • Our role in scaling up and scaling out of broadly applicable principles and technologies • Moving toward site-specific solutions to farm profitability • Linking production research with financial analyses: competitiveness with alternative options in the marketplace • Labor productivity and the challenge of laborsaving practices in cassava

Pests and Diseases • Balancing emergency response and long-term solutions • Linking seed systems with IPM • Linking with the global role of RTB (Africa/LAC)

Breeding: New and Renewed Roles • Updating/clarifying regional and country goals for breeding • Moving germplasm (CIAT to region; region to CIAT; within region) • Capacity building • Facilitating networking • Integrating molecular and field work

Socio-economics/Impact Analysis • An ongoing system for staying informed about production, processing trade – trends and foresight • Baseline studies and impact analysis built into project design, especially gender

Responses to Climate Change • Management practices that result in resilience, water use efficiency and soil conservation (i.e. eco-efficient systems) • Preparing for the failure of more demanding crops, with expansion and replacement by cassava: value chain development in new areas

CIAT Strategic Initiatives: New Pathways to Impact What are the opportunities for cassava involvement? • Tropical forages for eco-efficient livestock production (medium – crop/forage systems) • Sustainable food systems for a rapidly urbanizing world (high – processed products) • Reducing yield gaps for sustainable intensification of agriculture (high – public/private initiatives) • Realizing the value of ecosystem services for human well-being (high – fragile ecosystems)
