Opportunity: Call for Expressions of Interest  — CLARE in ASEAN

/

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are pleased to release this call for expressions of interest (EoI) to lead and implement research that enhances urban resilience to climate change in member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This call is held under the CLimate Adaptation and REsilience (CLARE) framework research programme, primarily funded by the UK FCDO with 15% co-funding from IDRC.

Background

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report on Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability highlights the urgent need for adaptation to climate change, particularly for the world’s most vulnerable populations. Similarly, the ASEAN State of Climate Change Report warns that Southeast Asia is already suffering significant climate impacts, which threaten decades of development progress and require immediate resilience and adaptation interventions.

In response to these challenges, the CLimate Adaptation and REsilience (CLARE) framework research programme, in collaboration with the ASEAN Working Group on Climate Change, is releasing a call for expressions of interest to lead and implement research aimed at enhancing urban climate resilience in ASEAN member states.

Scope

This call is the first stage of a process through which CLARE expects to partner with one institution that creates and leads a consortium of applied research projects in lower-income (ODA-eligible) ASEAN countries while promoting collaboration with institution in non-ODA-eligible countries. 

Interested applicants are invited to demonstrate that their organization and proposed team are able to lead a consortium for impactful research on climate adaptation and resilience in multiple Southeast Asian countries. Successful candidates will be invited to submit a full proposal.
