Call for proposals to the ESPA research programme
The Ecosystems Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) programme is a seven year interdisciplinary research programme. ESPA's goal is to ensure that, in developing countries, ecosystems are being sustainably managed in a way that contributes to poverty reduction and inclusive/sustainable growth.
ESPA will invest in cutting‑edge research that delivers improved understanding of how ecosystem function, the services they provide, the full value of these services, and their potential role in achieving sustainable poverty reduction. Crucially, ESPA funded research must provide evidence and tools to enable decision makers and end users to manage ecosystems sustainably and in a way that contributes to poverty reduction.
This announcement of opportunity invites proposals for research consortium projects that will address this agenda.
All projects are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) through the web‑based form by the closing date of 08/12/10. These will not be assessed, but submission of an EOI is a condition of submitting a full proposal.
The deadline for full proposals is 19/01/11.
