Grants for Agricultural Development in West Africa

Research Into Use (RIU) is a DFID-funded programme aimed at catalyzing agricultural innovation as a follow-up to DFID’s £22-m investment in the Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS). It represents a shift in emphasis away from generating new knowledge and towards ensuring that existing research with potential is promoted and scaled up successfully to achieve lasting development impact.

RIU now wishes to support a portfolio of Best Bets through an open, fair and competitive selection process for applicants in West Africa. Successful applicants will be provided with a significant level of grant aid to facilitate research outputs reaching their potential to provide significant benefit for the poor.

Potential applicants should note that the following selection criteria will be used in project selection:

  • The proposal should be grounded in rigorous research in agriculture, fisheries and forestry,
  • The originators of the research should be involved in the programme in a significant way
  • The proposal will be expected to achieve significant development impact at scale in West Africa
  • The proposal should comprise a consortium of partners (e.g. academic, public sector, ) led by an African institution and should include a private sector partner

Guidelines on how to apply are available from c.wheeler@nrint.couk The deadline for submission of completed applications is on or before 29th January 2010.
