Call for Applications RAN HoA RILab Drought Grants-CRID4RED

Published

on

ResilientAfrica Network (RAN)-Horn of Africa Resilience Innovation Lab (HoA RI Lab) is pleased to announce and invite applications for the Collaborative Resilience Innovation Design for Recurrent Effects of Drought (CRID4RED) Grants.

Are you working on an innovative idea or approach that has the potential to strengthen the resilience of communities dealing with drought? The CRID4RED call is sourcing innovative ideas that can contribute to resilience building in areas affected by recurrent effects of drought such as the Borana Zone of Southern Ethiopia.

Through CRID4RED, RAN is looking to select a team of motivated, experienced and innovative resource persons who will then co-create a collaborative, complementary ecosystem of projects designed to impact water supply and quality, livestock production, livelihoods diversification, and building agency for change. The projects will fit together to deliver services on a common systems level platform (e.g. the ability to use the same mobile-based customer payment system). Applications submitted through CRID4RED will be used as a basis for selecting a team of co-creators from different disciplinary backgrounds and organizations. The selected team members will then collaborate to transform their ideas into a set of fundable projects that have shared platform integration features.

In the first step of the CRID4RED process, the HoA RI Lab invites innovative ideas in three priority intervention pathways for resilience building around recurrent drought and its associated shocks and stresses:

  • Pathway 1: Water to drive development
  • Pathway 2: Diversified and market-oriented livestock production
  • Pathway 3: Diversified and sustainable livelihoods

Phase 1 grants ranging between US$ 50,000 to $100,000 are anticipated for each team formed around the final set of projects selected from those co-created by the co-creation team. The CRID4RED Call is open until April 29, 2016 11:59 pm EAT.

For details, updates and to apply, please visit www.grants.ranlab.org.

Together we can positively transform communities with “Solutions through Innovation”.
