Opportunity: Science and Global Development

The UKCDS hub is an excellent resource which will help researchers navigate UK funding opportunities in global development research including some key large funding sources within the UK such as DFID, Wellcome Trust, Newton Fund, GCRF, Ross Fund. Each page provides an overview of the funding topic areas, countries they fund, eligibility for both UK and international researchers and key funding programmes.

Opportunity: The Challenge Fund

The Global Fund for Disaster Reduction and Recovery along with the UK Government Department for International Development are seeking Expressions of Interest by 15th September.  The competitive Challenge Fund pilots new and innovative approaches to strengthen disaster and climate risk decision-making and overcome challenges to availability and accessibility of risk information in developing countries. This Challenge Fund provides small grants to projects that help bridge the gap between technology and on-the-ground user needs in the field of disaster risk identification.
