The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is searching for scientists who are interested in conducting research on gender issues related to the climate change, agriculture, and food security nexus. CCAFS will award women scientists enrolled in a PhD program or interested in a post doctoral opportunity, and who are citizens of and affiliated with an institution in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Bangladesh, India, or Nepal to a research grant of $35,000. Proposals must:

1.      Demonstrate and contribute to understanding the linkages between climate change and gender more specifically, while developing policy-relevant findings on climate change, agriculture, and food security more generally.

2.      Build research capacity of women scientists in partner institutions and increase their representation in agricultural research.

Proposals must be submitted by May 1, 2011.  The full call for proposals may be downloaded at http://ccafs.cgiar.org/sites/default/files/docs/call_for_competitive_small_grants_proposals.pdf and the application form is available at http://ccafs.cgiar.org/sites/default/files/docs/application_form_for_the_competitive_small_grants_proposals_0.pdf.
