Call for Proposals: Short-term Research on Food Security Early Action in East Africa

Call for Proposals: Short-term Research on Food Security Early Action in East Africa

We seek proposals from interested researchers or organizations to carry out short-term research projects that contribute to at least one of the ‘Challenge Questions’ that frame our research, learning and innovation agenda: Data for effective early action; Coordinating for effective early action; Financing for effective early action; Trust in data and evidence for early action; and Effective early action at Community level.

We expect to allocate up to £200,000 to between two and five separate projects.

Successful candidates will be expected to:

  • Attend initial virtual meetings as well as monthly check-ins.

  • Participate in virtual inception and closing workshops.

  • As needed, communicate project activities to wider audiences.

  • Complete a final report following Observatory guidelines.

  • Complete an Observatory brief summarizing results.

  • Fully credit the Observatory in any communication activities or materials.


  • Any researcher, organization or entity
    1 As examples: “Which financial mechanisms can be used at scale to support early action against
    environmental shocks in the pastoral regions of East Africa?”, “Where early warnings have not translated into broad-scale early action by communities or other actors, what practical
    solutions or innovations can close this disconnect to build faster and more effective early action against future shocks?”


  • Applicants can submit more than one application, which could be separate or linked for more flexible budgets.

  • Payments will be made for meeting a series of milestones and upon deliverables.

  • If you work with any organization that incurs value added tax or equivalent, this must be fully
    costed in the application.

  • Co-funding is welcome.


    Proposals which have clear links to partners in East Africa and/or Jameel Observatory consortium
    members are particularly welcome. Collaboration is encouraged.
