The Research Programmes will undertake work in three areas:
1. Disability, Inequality and Poverty
Researchers are invited to develop research programme proposals which will examine the specific barriers to inclusion facing disabled people in low income country settings. The key research question is “What are the specific barriers to inclusion facing disabled children and adults in accessing health, education, social protection and labour market services, and how can these barriers be overcome in sustainable and cost-effective ways?”
2. Poverty in Urban Spaces
This call is forforward-thinking, relevant research which examines how urban spaces are changing and identifying the emerging challenges for reducing urban poverty. This includes understanding of towns and peri-urban areas, and new interventions that can tackle urban poverty at scale.
3. Urbanisation and Risk in Africa
Researchers applying under this stream are invited to develop research programme proposals which will map and measure the different dimensions of risk in urban Africa and produce policy-relevant evidence that can inform efforts by national, regional and municipal/city governments, multilateral agencies, NGOs and humanitarian donors to build urban resilience and manage risk and uncertainty.
