countries to deliver climate compatible development. We offer advice and technical assistance, cutting-edge research, strategic knowledge sharing and partnership building.  Within the research stream, we make periodic global and regional research calls on specific topics, and we also have an ongoing innovation fund which supports smallerresearchprojects.

 The CDKN is pleased to give you advance notice of a new global research call to open on Thursday 1st September 2011. The closing date for applications will be 24th October 2011.

 The call will cover two themes:

 i)              Climate Compatible Development, including low carbon growth, and policy processes 

ii)             Disaster Risk Management and Resilience 

Specific sub-questions will be released on 1st September 2011 as part of the full call documentation. These will be made available on the CDKN website.

 We are looking for excellent, ambitious proposals for applied research of up to £500,000 (British pounds) in value for projects of 18-24 months’ duration and will award funding for up to eight research projects, to a total call value of £4 million (British pounds).

 CDKN seeks to fund research of the highest scientific standards with clear policy impact. The CDKN is therefore committed to: expanding existing knowledge and theoretical understandings, fostering direct integration between researchers and policy makers throughout the research process, including partners based in the global south, and encouraging effective mutual capacity building between all partners (northern-based partners are welcome to apply, and will need  to develop research alongside southern-based partners).

 On Thursday 1st September, we will publish and circulate full details of the call, including specific research questions that CDKN has identified as priority for focus, full eligibility criteria for projects and application processes. Please note we are unable to give out further details of the call at this stage, but will be happy to answer any questions from 1st September 2011.
