Infographic factsheet: The World of Maize

  1. 1. OUR STRATEGY MAIZE’s strategy is to ensure that publicly-funded international agricultural research works most efficiently in maize-based systems (in Africa,Latin America and South Asia) and: stabilizes maize prices and improve livelihoods doubles maize productivity increases sustainability and resource use efficiency A sustainable strategy for food security Farmers need new varieties and technologies to adapt to changing climates,drought,flooding and new diseases and to sustainably grow more with less to improve food and nutritional security. 3 research strategies meet these key challenges. Sustainable Intensification of Maize-Based Farming Systems 1 Sustainable intensification of maize-legume based cropping systems for food security in eastern and southern Africa (SIMLESA) 40,000 farmers 40 varieties innovation platforms capacity building activities Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) 750mechanized service providers technical and business skills sustainable intensification technologies 185,000 farmers in India Supports DONORSACIAR - Australian Center for International Agricultural Research AFDB - African Development Bank Group AGRA - Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa AWF - African Wildlife Foundation BMGF - Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation CAAS - Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences CGIAR - Global Agriculture Research Partnership Cornell University GCP - Generation Challenge Programme GIZ - The German Society for International Cooperation Government of Nigeria GRiSP - Global Rice & Science Partnership ICAR - Indian Council Agricultural Research IFAD - International Fund for Agricultural Development SAGARPA - Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock,Rural Development,Fisheries and Food in Mexico SDC - The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SFSA - Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture USAID - United States Agency for International Development www.maize.org ©2014.All rights reservedThe International Maize andWheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Institute forTropical Agriculture (IITA) maizecrp@cgiar.org 3 MAIZE targets Inclusive and Profitable Maize Futures This strategy delivers data and information for improved targeting of MAIZE interventions,and generates insights to enhance maize technology adoption,inclusiveness,gender equity,market access and reduce vulnerability. In developing countries US $330 billion is lost each year to Food spoilage and Waste to achieve 25%reduced losses Improved Storage Biocontrol (Aflasafe) + Safe and profitable value chains GENDER IN MAIZE 13%of MAIZE budget is allocated to gender 30% of participants in capacity-building activities in 2013 were female A gender audit of MAIZE has been completed to assess gender targeting within the CRP MAIZE participates in a joint cross-CRP study exploring gender in agricultural innovation in 60 villages around the world MAIZE values the role of gender for farm households and for developing, testing and promoting technologies Women’s empowerment and better household decision making MAIZE works with partners to integrate gender in all projects Stress Resilient and Nutritious Maize 2 MAIZE supports and strengthens breeding programs in Africa,Asia and Latin America but also aligns with and strengthens local maize seed systems in the target areas. 28,883 Accessions under research 1,433 Lines in FieldTesting 63 Varieties released Disadvantaged Farmers 2013 CIMMYT internal data 2013 180 Small to medium Seed companies 226Community-based seed producers 100 collaborators Take it to the Farmer Initiative 150,000REACHING 175 Demonstration modules Experimental platforms 31 100 Soil fertility experiments maize farmers Staple food for 900 million people living on less than $2 a day The World of MAIZE Maize, Rice andWheat provide of calories for 4.5 billion people in 94 developing coun- tries 30% LATIN AMERICA ANNUAL PRODUCTION INCREASE (2002-2012) +4.5% AREA HARVESTED (2012) 37.3m hectares CONSUMPTION PER CAPITA (2009) 47.6 kg/year ANNUAL PRODUCTION INCREASE (2002-2012) +4.9% AREA HARVESTED (2012) 32.5m hectares CONSUMPTION PER CAPITA (2009) 39.7 kg/year SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA ANNUAL PRODUCTION INCREASE (2002-2012) +5.7% AREA HARVESTED (2012) 57.6m hectares CONSUMPTION PER CAPITA (2009) 9.3 kg/year ASIA Importance of maize as a source of calories where MAIZE CRP works 1 2 3 4 FAOSTAT 2013 MAIZE TARGETS WITH 275 maize dependent poor smallholders in stress-prone areas and lacking market access million 367 smallholders held back by lack of access to technology Information services Improved technologies Market opportunities New varieties Poor maize consumers vulnerable to price changesmillion TO HELP Maize yields need to increase by 60% by 2050 to meet demand 90%of poor maize farmers live in tropical climates most vulnerable to climate change Growing use as a livestock feed:440 million tons produced in 2014 Biofuels:1 ton of maize = 370 liters of ethanol New disease in Kenya:loss of 56,730tons,or US$ 23.5 million in 2012 due to maize lethal necrosis virus Launched in 2012, MAIZE is a CGIAR Research Program (CRP) led by: 300 over partners 130 National Agricultural Research Institutes 18 Regional and International Organizations 46 Private Sector Organizations 42 NGOs and Farmer Associations 75 Universities 21 Advanced Research Institutes WHO WE ARE International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center International Institute for Tropical Agriculture A global agriculture research partnership CGIAR RESEARCH PROGRAM ON MAIZE MAIZE identifies strategic research and development gaps and partners help fill those gaps with both upstream and downstream research.
