Grow Asia's 8-Step Framework and Theory of Change
An 8-Step framework summarizes how Grow Asia works as a platform to build catalytic partnerships and deliver solutions, both vertically by mobilizing partners along a specific commercial value chain or commodity sector; or horizontally through pre-competitive facilitation of knowledge sharing, training, and policy dialogue.
supportive policy changes and market interventions
action oriented partnerships at regional and country level
partners in policy dialogue
learning and networking between partners
Grow Asia is a multi-stakeholder platform that builds regional and country partnerships to broker market-driven solutions for more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable food systems in Southeast Asia
partners to implement value chain, thematic, & sectoral projects
the adoption of solutions and business models that benefit farmers
2. Mobilising relevant partners to undertake thematic coordination
solutions and best practices with the potential to improve smallholder livelihoods
These activities are carried out by the Regional Flagships through country-led interventions that deliver outputs through multi-stakeholder partnerships. Collectively, they contribute to our three outcomes of creating more inclusive value chains, supporting more climate-smart solutions, and increasing food safety and security — critical to food systems transformation in Southeast Asia.
Transparently measuring and communicating Grow Asia’s progress against the Outcomes we have committed to achieving with the resources we have been given.
Grow Asia's Monitoring and Evaluation system has 3 purposes:
Creating the evidence needed to help those managing activities, projects, and programs to understand results, adapt programs, and improve our strategic approach.
Strengthening our Country Partnerships’ and partner organizations’ ability to generate and use high-quality data to guide their own policy and decision-making.
