Call for proposals
Safe and Inclusive Cities: Reducing urban violence, poverty, and inequalities

Deadline: 26/08/2012
Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is launching a call for proposals as part of the Safe and Inclusive Cities research initiative. In partnership with the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development, this jointly funded initiative aims to build an evidence base on the connections between urban violence, poverty, and inequalities. It also seeks to identify the most effective strategies for addressing these challenges.

Grants of up to CA$500,000 will be awarded to carry out cutting-edge research in cities across Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia.

How to Apply
 
Please carefully review the Call for Proposals document (available in English, French, and Spanish.) There, you will find an overview of the Safe and Inclusive Cities research initiative, as well as information on eligibility requirements, evaluation criteria, and instructions on how to apply.

Prior to completing your application, applicants are encouraged to consult the Safe and Inclusive Cities baseline study.

The Safe and Inclusive Cities application form is available in English, French, and Spanish.
 
Deadline for applications: August 26, 2012 at 23:59 EDT.
