The Knowledge and Innovation Exchange, a partnership between IDRC and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), launched the third of four regional competitive calls to generate and mobilize innovative knowledge for education challenges shared across GPE member countries.
In partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, IDRC is pleased to launch a call for action research proposals on Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) – East Africa.
The Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) will award CA$3.5 million to a project that seeks to scale up educational innovations in developing country contexts by building knowledge and capacity.
The COVID-19 pandemic is creating unprecedented development challenges in low- and middle-income countries. Governments, international aid agencies, civil society organizations, and the private sector need evidence to mitigate the potentially devastating socio-economic impacts of the pandemic in developing regions, while also building the conditions for a more resilient future.
COVID-19 is a global problem, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why IDRC is working with African partners to fund research designed to mitigate the impact of the pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa and to inform international responses.
Together with the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), IDRC has awarded CA$11.1 million to four regional learning partners who will design and operate hubs for the Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX).
