IDRC, together with the Australian International Food Security Centre (AIFSC), is pleased to announce the inaugural call for concept notes of the Cultivate Africa’s Future (CultiAF) Fund.
The 2013 call is to support applied research in areas vital to achieving long-term food security in 10 Eastern and Southern African countries, with a focus on post-harvest systems, the agriculture-nutrition nexus, and sustainable water use.
The Fund is looking to harness the best minds in the private, public, and non-governmental sectors to expand its research portfolio and lay the groundwork for scaling-up research results and innovations — within a country or across the region.
This is an open, competitive call for concept notes, and submissions may come from new or existing partnerships.
