Small grants program, 2013

As a part of Objective 4 of SIAC to strengthen impact assessment (IA) capacity, this call for one-page proposals launched in October 2013 aimed to support a variety of IA activities by CGIAR scientists and CRP partners through a simple, fast approval process. The call is now closed due to a combination of reasons (budgetary and lengthy administrative process).

Four proposals from CIMMYT, ILRI, IWMI and Bioversity (a sum of US$35,000) were funded between October 2013 and March 2014. Brief reports will be posted on this site at the end of project period.

  • IWMI, electricity and water pump policy in India: evaluation to assess impact of policy change.
  • ILRI, pastoral value chains in Senegal: MSc Fellow to develop social or environmental sustainability indicators.
  • CIMMYT, agri. technology package in Malawi and Ethiopia: applying endogenous regression switching model to a panel dataset.
  • Bioversity, Home Gardens evaluation in Nepal: new approaches to measurement/evaluation of gender impacts.
