(Preannouncement) Funding opportunity on climate change and health - IDRC/Canada 

2024/02/02 / Boletín SIUN, Vicerrectoría de Investigación, UNAL

Apertura: 19 feb. 2024; cierre (expresiones de interés): 15 mar. 2024

The International Development Research Center (IDRC) of Canada is providing preliminary information on this funding opportunity to allow applicants time to prepare their applications. 

The funding opportunity will be launched on 19 February 2024. Through the anticipated call, up to five institutions will be funded to establish regional hubs in the Global South. These hubs will initiate and manage research sub-grants in West and Central Africa, East and Southern Africa, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East and North Africa. 

The selected hubs will be expected to run one or more open competitive calls to identify and select research projects in their corresponding region. It is expected that the selected projects will represent linguistic, gender and geographic diversity across the respective region; diversity across thematic areas relevant to climate change and health; diversity based on different determinants and attributes of vulnerability; and diversity of involved stakeholders such as policymakers, civil society and private-sector representatives. 

The anticipatory funding opportunity will not be open to individuals or government ministries, and agencies or branches, offices and chapters of international organizations, but it is open to public research institutes, think tanks and universities. 

Application process  

This anticipatory funding opportunity will involve a two-stage process. In the first stage, interested applicants will be required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). The EOI stage is mandatory and will require applicants to complete an eligibility checklist and upload supporting documents. No technical proposal or concept note is required at the EOI stage. Only applicants whose EOIs are successful will be invited to submit a full technical proposal. Specific requirements for the application process, including the EOI phase, will be outlined in the anticipatory funding opportunity when it is formally announced. 

Anticipated timelines 

Please be advised that these dates are approximations and subject to change.
