Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to advance the generation and use of context-specific evidence that will drive changes in food systems and enable healthy and sustainable diets in Eastern Africa.
This funding opportunity will form part of a new Initiative, the goal of which is to improve the health and wellbeing of low-income and vulnerable populations who face the double burden of malnutrition and environmental threats like climate change.
The Initiative focuses on improving the relative market competitiveness of protective, healthy foods, individual and community vulnerabilities to unhealthy food environments, and drivers of food purchasing habits that may be important targets for shifting low income and vulnerable populations toward healthier diets.
Proposed research must take place in one or more of the following Eastern African countries –Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
This call aims to support robust and innovative research that enhances understanding of which policies and interventions promote greater market competitiveness of nutritious and sustainable food and contribute to healthier and more sustainable food systems.
Applications are encouraged to address at least one of the following research themes:
Duration of research grants: Between 12 –36 months.
Budget: BetweenCAD$300,000 and $1M per project.
Grants will be awarded subject to the availability of funds.
