These Grants will support projects that are at the upper limit of the research-innovation value chain — i.e. projects that are likely to make a tangible impact. Such projects could be industry-led, community-driven, or policy-led, among other possibilities. These projects should make substantive use of mathematical concepts to provide solutions to climate change issues in Africa. Projects will be supported for a period of 6 to 12 months at a non-recurring maximum cost of USD 10 000 per Grantee.
This Small Research Grants Program in Climate Change Science is made possible by a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada, www.idrc.ca, and financial support from the Government of Canada provided through Global Affairs Canada (GAC), www.international.gc.ca, under the Mathematical Sciences for Climate Change Resilience Program administered by the AIMS Global Secretariat.
The Program is part of a broader effort by AIMS-NEI to build the intellectual capital required to increase our understanding of the causative factors of climate change, and address the myriad challenges to Africa’s development arising from climate change.
Six outstanding scientists have already benefited from this program. Meet the first cohort of Grantees and learn about their research .
