In 2017, CCAFS will make the transition from it's phase 1 planning and implementation stage to phase 2. Phase 2 involves a new concept of planning using cross topic themes, known as flagships, such as \"gender\" and \"innovation\". In order to prepare the transition towards Phase 2, Theme 4 has been identified to spearhead the flagship development process. Flagship 4 (FS4) on Policies and Institutions for Climate-Resilient Food Systems is being phased in from 2014 onwards. This internal document gives a brief summary of this process.
