CGIAR is in the midst of a transition process in order to improve its research for development programming, its contribution towards development outcomes and to foster collaboration across CGIAR centres as well as key stakeholders. Within this context, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) has started planning the extension phase (2015-16) of its Phase 1 using an impact pathway (IP) approach and requesting all its flagship programs, regional programs and projects to develop IPs to demonstrate the contribution of their research to development outcomes. This facilitation guide is an up-date of an earlier version that was produced to support a training of scientists who are members of the CCAFS Working Group on Impact Pathways and M&E for results-based management conducted from 1-5th April 2014 in Segovia, Spain. This improved, simplified facilitation guide documents the ways CCAFS is currently using an IP approach in its program planning.
