March 15, 2008 – Deadline for expressions of interest: research grants on gender and land in Southern Africa

The Program for Land and Agrarian Studies is seeking expressions of interest for research on gender and land to be carried out in Southern Africa, through an initiative funded by the International Development Research Centre in collaboration with the International Land Coalition and Makerere Institute for Social Research. Securing Women’s Access to Land: Linking Research and Action, seeks to generate locally-based knowledge by supporting civil society and women’s organizations that have significant experience in supporting women’s land (and other) rights.

Four grants of a maximum of US$50,000 will be given to initiatives led by community-based organizations (CBOs) in collaboration with NGOs, research institutes, and policy organizations. The four grants will be distributed among South Africa, Madagascar, and two other countries in the sub-region.
