The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has a Call for Concept Notes on action research on “Value chains and the rural poor in disadvantaged regions”. The research must be located in a disadvantaged region in one of the following four Rural Poor & Environment (RPE) priority regions: the Sahel Belt of West Africa; the Nile Basin; South Asia; the Mekong Delta; or the Philippines.
The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) has been working with the RPE initiative within IDRC to develop a research agenda that supports poor, rural households to engage more successfully with global economic processes. On behalf of IDRC, ODI is now managing the implementation of this research agenda. Concept Note Forms shall be presented to ODI either electronically or by post by 16:00hrs (U.K. time) on June 29, 2007.
