2018 INGSA Research Associates


INGSA was proud to partner with the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to provide six professional development grants to support early-to-mid career researchers and policy professionals in Low and Middle Income Countries. These grants enabled these INGSA Research Associates to undertake research of diverse facets of the science-to-policy interface in their countries and regions.

We are grateful to the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) for making these grants possible.

The recipients were chosen through a competitive process that attracted applications from all around the world, and these recipients are an excellent example of the potential and scope of science/policy interface inquiry in the Global South.

We encourage you to have a deep read through each of the Research Associates’ project overviews below:
