Explore launches Call for Concept Notes under the Sida-funded Preparatory Grant Mechanism for research on forest landscape governance

Deadline for applications is 15 November 2021. Researchers who care about forests, poverty, gender and justice are invited to apply.

The Sida-funded Explore research network launched its first Call for Concept Notes for research on forest landscape governance on 16 September 2021 at a videoconference hosted by the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF). The deadline for submissions is 15 November 2021.

Explore is a research network and community of practice dedicated to expanding and applying knowledge on forest landscape governance in Southeast Asia. 

The maximum grant for the competitive call is US$15,000. Successful applicants will have six months to develop their concept notes into full research proposals. 

“By providing funding, training, mentorship and support, Explore is building capacity for research on forest landscape governance in seven countries in Southeast Asia,” said David Ganz, RECOFTC Executive Director. “We invite all researchers with an interest in forest landscape governance to apply. Gender equality and inclusion are particularly important to us, and we encourage women researchers to apply.”

AnnaMaria Oltorp, Head of Regional Development Cooperation for Asia and the Pacific from Sida gave opening remarks at the launch event held on Zoom, 16 September 2021.
