Along with several other CRPs, CCAFs has been piloting a new way of
doing business in 2014, revolving around the use of results-based
management (RBM). Six projects were selected via a competitive call in
2013 for regional activities under Flagship Program 4, Policies and
institutions for climate resilient food systems. The RBM process itself
involves a shift away from a logframe approach to an impact pathway
approach based on theories of change, in which pathways are defined from
research and its outputs such as policy makers, development
organisations, and farmers.
This document summarises what was achieved during 2014 by the CCAFS RBM
trial. This is followed by a discussion of the prerequisites for a CRP
to implement 'successful RBM', through an assessment of which aspects
worked according to expectations and what was done when things did not
occur as expected. The report concludes with a summary of overall
