REDAA grants

REDAA wants to fund different organisations and networks that are keen to be led by local priorities, integrating these into research design and the way findings are communicated.

There will be several grant calls over the course of the programme, aiming to fund research that fills gaps identified through consultations in each region. Each grant call will make clear what kind of grants are available and what kind of projects the call is seeking to fund. 

Applications will be made through IIED’s flexigrant system. Guidance on how to use the flexigrant system is included in the Guidance for Applicants document for each funding call. The main contact point for support with applications will be enquiries@redaa.org.

Complementary programmes

REDAA compliments a number of current international research and funding initiatives in the United Kingdom, including:

  • The Global Centre on Biodiversity for Climate (GCBC)
    The GCBC is a UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) programme that funds research into natural solutions to climate change and poverty. By working in partnership with scientists, academics, and research institutions in the Global South, the programme seeks to develop scalable approaches to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity that delivers climate solutions and improves livelihoods. The GCBC is funded by the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and managed in partnership with DAI Global and Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (RBG Kew).
  • Climate Adaptation and Resilience (CLARE)
    CLARE is a Canada-UK partnership to enable socially inclusive and sustainable action to build resilience to climate change and natural hazards for people across the Global South. Co-funded and designed by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC), CLARE enables socially inclusive and sustainable action to build resilience and reduce vulnerability to risks from climate change and natural hazards for the most vulnerable. 
  • Equitable nature-based climate resilience in sub-Saharan Africa
    This joint UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and UK FCDO transdisciplinary research programme aims to enhance understanding of the scalability and contextualisation of Nature-based Solutions in sub-Saharan Africa
