Global Affairs Canada (GAC) has awarded funding to PEP for a new research initiative on “Climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa: Impacts and responses for women and girls”. Through this three-year initiative (2020-2023), PEP will support up to four (4) research projects, each in a different sub-Saharan African country.
To ensure the relevance of the research and its use for informing policy, the projects will be led by teams of local researchers and government officers. The PEP research support program spans four distinct methodological approaches. For each approach, experts from around the world are assigned as mentors to the research project teams upon the teams’ selection.
