CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA)
The ESPA-2014 Grants call is for 'blue skies' research projects designed to significantly advance global understanding on the way that ecosystem services contribute to poverty alleviation, with specific emphasis on generating new understanding that can benefit poor people in low-income countries (LICs). Research funded under ESPA-2014 is expected to inform thinking and practice over, at least, the next decade, representing a step-change in the knowledge and evidence that will underpin future activities in ESPA's sphere of activity.
Applications are invited for funding in the range of between £50,000 and £150,000 Full Economic Cost (FEC). This call has been allocated a total available budget of up to £1·5m, which may be revised at the discretion of the Programme Executive Board (PEB). Projects will be funded for a maximum duration of 12 months, with an expected start date between 1 December 2014 and 1 February 2015.
Deadline: May 14, 2014
