DEFRA - Factors that Enhance Women's Empowerment
(1 April 2005)
The Department for International Development invites expressions of interest from organisations to run new research programme consortia on factors that enhance women's empowerment. Research programme consortia are centres of specialisation around a particular research and policy theme, and will be led by one organisation forming a consortium. The aim is to generate a development research programme that will inform the international community as it acts to eradicate poverty.
Research should be aimed at shaping future development policy and practice, and must be consistent with the overall objectives and strategies of DFID for the achievement of the international development targets.
Funding will be up to £750,000 annually for five years.
Deadline: expressions of interest 2pm, 22 April; invited full proposals 13 May 2005
