The ARA’s Grassroots Action Research Micro-grants 2023 have been awarded!
The Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA) has awarded 30 Global South projects as part of its Grassroots Action Research Micro-grants. The projects will receive up to GBP 15,000 to carry out inclusive, locally-led action research for identifying needs and opportunities for building resilience.
“The ARA’s Grassroots Action Research Micro-grants kickstart or strengthen Global South relationships that represent all voices and knowledge types in exploring equitable approaches for adapting to climate change,” says ARA Micro-grant Lead Sydney Church.
The awarded projects are based in 22 countries from the Global South, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Haiti, Kenya, the Philippines, Somalia, India, and Uruguay. They address a variety of climate adaptation issues identified as urgent by local communities, including health, coastal erosion, drought, urban planning, and food security.
