The newly released annual report on the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) shows that the initiative — the largest education fund of its kind — is closing the gap between research innovation and policy impact.
This funding opportunity seeks to strengthen science, technology and innovation (STI) in Latin America and the Caribbean to foster the region’s development, by supporting 1) regional collaboration for research and policy uptake; 2) inclusive STI; and 3) strong granting councils and regional coordination agencies.
Over the next three years, 12 new research projects supported by IDRC will address the gender barriers that hinder women’s access to economic opportunities, while supporting sustainable climate-resilient recovery.
Key findings of an IDRC-funded project in the West Bank — Reproductive health needs of Palestinian refugee camp adolescent girls: From evidence to policy — include the importance of engaging the community in COVID-19 prevention efforts and providing assistance to those in need.
This project is part of an initiative that will provide evidence and strengthen capacity for bridging the knowledge gap in responding to the growing COVID-19 health crisis both in the short-term and longer-term.
Digital health technologies have the potential to provide greater access to better quality and more affordable care, but governing the digital personal data generated by and required to support many digital health innovations is a critical challenge.
This project aims to generate knowledge on adolescents’ perceptions of and requirements for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services among Palestinian refugee camp dwellers in the West Bank and Jordan.
