3ie RFP: Systematic reviews of development interventions on water, sanitation & hygiene, climate change & humanitarian assistance
The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) requests proposals for systematic reviews that investigate the impact of development interventions in the areas of water, sanitation and hygiene, climate change and humanitarian assistance.
The review questions are:
- To what extent has the sanitation and hygiene sub-sector taken into account the life-cycle approach in the design, implementation, maintenance and use of programmes during the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) period (2000-2015)?
- What is the effectiveness of interventions aiming to promote sanitation and hygiene behaviour change in communities?
- What is the comparative efficiency and effectiveness of providing humanitarian non-food item (NFI) in-kind distributions versus cash and vouchers in the immediate aftermath and recovery period following natural disasters and political instability?
- What are the effects of land use change and forestry sector programmes and policies on greenhouse gas emissions and human welfare outcomes? (Evidence gap map and two systematic reviews).
Applicants, please note:
- There will be one award for each of these questions, but 3ie and its partners may choose to fund fewer reviews if insufficient proposals of adequate quality are received.
- 3ie expects to fund grants of up to US$100,000 for each systematic review. But costs may vary depending on a range of factors, including the scope of the review and methods of synthesis employed.
- Only legally registered organisations and consortia of registered organisations, not individuals, may apply.
- Organisations may only submit one proposal per question (but may submit more than one proposal for different questions) and may be included on more than one proposal.
- The lead grant-holding organisation may be located anywhere in the world.
- 3ie encourages proposals and research teams from low- and middle-income countries, and requires proposals include researchers from low- and middle-income countries in the study team.
The deadline for submission is 12 noon GMT, 22 May 2015. For queries please email email@example.com
