Global Antimicrobial Resistance Innovation Fund (GAMRIF) – UK-Argentina: tools to tackle AMR in the Environment
Project Data Last Updated: 27/07/2021
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-10-GAMRIF-WP4-UK-Argentina
This is a bilateral partnership with Argentina to support research to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in agriculture and the impact on the environment. Successful projects are a partnership of UK companies and research orgnisations, with Argentinian companies and research organisations. The competition and partnership will be delivered in the UK by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), both part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), and delivered and matched-funded, on a resource basis, by the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) in Argentina.Description
The aim of this partnership is to generate new knowledge and provide a deeper evidence base that can help to reduce the impact of drivers of AMR in the environment from agricultural sources as they apply to Argentina and low- and middle- income countries (LMICs). This includes research towards the development of theroretical frameworks for surveillance and reporting on AMR and antibiotics, and research towards the development of strategies for manure, slurry and waste management. Projects are also required to produce outputs that translate research into policy, such as policy briefings or best practice position papers for LMICs.Description
Projects funded through the Global AMR Innovation Fund (GAMRIF) will primarily benefit people in LMICs, where the burden of drug-resistant infection is greater.
