    IDRC is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity aimed at fostering effective, long-term climate action to reduce social inequality, promote greater gender parity, and empower women and girls worldwide.

    Accelerating Climate Action: Social Equity and Empowerment of Women and Girls builds on IDRC’s history as a key development funder, contributor of evidence-backed climate research, and incubator of innovative and inclusive climate adaptation solutions.

    The aim of this call is to produce knowledge that facilitates the scaling and financing of socially-transformative climate action. By focusing on empowering women in the least-developed countries —where climatic pressures and environmental stresses are particularly acute — IDRC hopes to contribute both to the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the realization of SDG 5.

    IDRC’s investments in climate research directly benefit the world’s most vulnerable people. We support high quality, demand-driven, policy-relevant action on climate hotspots (coastal zones, dry areas, mountains, and cities), with an emphasis on the effects of climate change on the lives and livelihoods of women and girls.

    With this funding opportunity, IDRC intends to support a unique portfolio of projects addressing current climate research knowledge gaps in the areas of:

    • Climate and disaster resilience: Research projects focusing on socially-equitable development planning that enhances the ability of people — regardless of gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, or physical ability — to mitigate and adapt to climate-related hazards;
    • Energy security: Research projects that explore socially equitable access to innovative, clean, and renewable energy services and to energy-based technologies; and
    • Migration: Research projects that produce knowledge to contribute to using migration as a proactive adaptation strategy that contributes to equitable access to economic, health, educational, and employment services.

    The results of IDRC-funded research help communities worldwide improve their preparations for extreme weather events, become more resilient in the face of climate change, and develop the right adaptation tools to cope with an uncertain future. Through this initiative, we seek to identify opportunities and remove barriers to the application, scaling, and financing of these solutions.

    The deadline for the submission of research proposals is April 23, 2018 at 11:59pm EST (Ottawa-Canada time).
