Are you working on research to help adapt agricultural production to climate change? If so this funding call from the Science for Africa Foundation (SFA Foundation), could be for you!

The African Agriculture Climate Adaptation Research System funding call is being rolled out through the SFA Foundation’s Grand Challenges Africa (GC Africa) programme, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Grants of up to $100,000 will be provided to seed projects and up to $200,000 to transition to scale projects implemented over a period of 18-24 months.

The African agriculture climate adaptation research system funding will be given to innovative projects that strengthen research, evidence, and processes supporting agriculture-related adaptation planning. This also includes risk management and investment, intra-Africa research collaboration on data, data science, and modeling.
