Posted by Shofi Fida Wednesday, August 5, 2015 0 comments
Closing Date: September 18, 2015.

The Cities and Climate Change initiative will support high quality, demand driven, policy relevant action research that engages local authorities, communities, and the private sector. Research will help to meet the adaptation deficit in small to medium sized cities or well defined subdivisions of large cities, where demographic pressure and environmental stresses are particularly acute. Proposed solutions should address climate risk and uncertainty, and inspire innovation in adaptation strategies and technologies.

Proposed research must be gender-sensitive and target one or more of the following themes:
1.   "Hard solutions," for example, developing, protecting, and adapting climate-ready infrastructure; innovative WASH systems; the development and application of adaptation technologies.
2.   "Soft solutions," for example, innovative governance systems and planning approaches, fees for intensive resource use; collaborative management of water resources and associated infrastructure, services, and industries.
3. Research addressing climate and population thresholds that threaten the sustainability of communities and industries, influence behavioral change, and/or address barriers to adoption of adaptation strategies and technologies.

1.  The proposed research must take place in one or more of the following countries: Bangladesh, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mali, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Senegal, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
2. The proposed research must be led by a research-oriented organization from academia, government, the private sector, or civil society and be based in one of the eligible countries listed above.
3.  Organizations from the United Nations system, members of the Consortium of International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), or multilateral agencies are not eligible as lead organizations for the proposed research, even when operating in a developing country, but can be included as partners provided their budget share does not exceed 20%. 

Duration: Up to 36 months
