CDKN Climate Compatible Development Impact Research Fund

CDKN is pleased to launch the Climate compatible development Impact Research Fund (CIRF) which aims to fill priority research gaps and address key questions relating to climate compatible development, across four thematic areas.  The approximate total budget for the call is up to £3.35 million. We expect to fund around 8 to 16 projects of 12-20 months’ duration, depending on quality of applications and amount of funding requested. From this page you will be able to access all the relevant information, application forms, and guidance documents associated with the CIRF, as well as short articles introducing the thematic scope of the call.

Overview:
In this call, CDKN challenges the international research community to develop innovative research to provide a robust and accessible evidence base for decision-making and achieve maximum policy impact. The highest standards of theory and intellectual rigour are expected. Multi- or inter-disciplinary research collaborations are encouraged, where they improve research quality.
The four thematic areas were developed following a six month consultative phase with academics and policy-makers in developing regions; they are as follows:
  • Robust national plans for climate compatible development transitions
The next fifteen years provide the window of time in which the global economy must shift toward low-carbon development to avoid a global mean temperature change of greater than 2°C and climate change’s worst effects, a reality affirmed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report. Research commissioned through this package will look at: informing and operationalising national targets, strategies, or plans for low-carbon development; understanding the effects of green growth objectives on other policies; and identifying and resolving political economy constraints and enablers that affect the ambition and implementation of national plans.

  • Enabling conditions for urban climate compatible development
Urban areas are a crucial location for achieving climate compatible development. The urban population will swell to almost 5 billion by 2030 and with growth particularly concentrated in Africa and Asia. The second research area will examine the enabling conditions for implementation of climate compatible development in rapidly growing cities in developing countries, with a focus on infrastructure, peri-urban climate compatible development, innovative funding mechanisms, incentives, health, and women and marginalised groups.

  • Climate-related disaster risk management and adaptation
Climate-related disaster risk management and adaptation have been identified as priority areas by government stakeholders in many of CDKN’s deep engagement countries, and these sets of policies often provide a practical entry point for delivering climate compatible development. The scope of this thematic area includes understanding and measuring the social and economic impacts of disaster risk management and adaptation initiatives, and enhancing the resilience of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, including those in the informal economy.

  • Climate Compatible Development and the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus
Water, energy and food security are central to the pursuit of climate compatible development. The direct impacts of climate change on human development can be clearly seen in these sectors, for example, through changes in water availability and crop production. Policy formulation and implementation, however, tends to be on sectoral lines. The core premise of the WEF ‘nexus approach’ is that the policy objectives in one sector (water, energy or food) can interact with those in other sectors, because they are either preconditions for the realisation of a another sector’s objectives, or one sector (system) imposes conditions or constraints on what can be achieved in the other sectors. This research package will examine various elements associated with governance, equity, and transnational nexus resource management.
