The Climate and Disaster Governance Programme is offering research bursaries of up to US$1000 to support research at the national or sub-national level in developing countries on topics that fall under the four themes:
Citizen engagement and accountability in climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction policy processes
What role for social protection in reducing climate and disaster risk?
Opportunities for climate and disaster institution building in fragile states
Implications of international climate and disaster risk reduction policy frameworks
Research topics that investigate cross-cutting issues related to Climate and Disaster Governance will also be considered.
Bursaries will be awarded for research conducted by developing country researchers in developing countries.
Bursaries will be made to: students engaged in post-graduate studies, non-students with professional development experience in relevant sectors
Bursaries can support existing or planned research projects that have been approved by a supervisor.
Research bursaries may be used for travel costs, translation, employing research assistants, equipment to use in the field, communicating the research and publication costs.
Bursary awards are for up to one year only from the date of award.
Successful applicants will be expected to produce a four-page report for the Climate and Disaster Governance programme, and to share their dissertation/ final research product, agreeing for the product to be shared through the Climate and Disaster Governance website if deemed suitable by members of the bursary award panel.
Where appropriate, successful applicants will be assigned a mentor linked to the Climate and Disaster Governance programme to help enhance the research.
Bursaries shall only be awarded if applications of a sufficiently high standard are forthcoming.
Deadline: 31st July.
