XCEPT Component 1: X-Border Local Research Network

The Asia Foundation

The X-Border Local Research Network — a component of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s Cross-Border Conflict: Evidence, Policy and Trends (XCEPT) program — is a partnership between The Asia Foundation, the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center and the Rift Valley Institute. With support from UK aid from the UK government, the three organizations work with local research partners to improve our understanding of political, economic and social dynamics in conflict-affected borderlands, and the flows of people, goods and ideas that connect them. The project supports more effective policymaking and development programming, leveraging research to advocate for peaceful change.

Peatland Assessment in SE Asia by Satellite (PASSES)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

Tropical forest fires affect 20 million+ people in SE Asia, leading to significant deteriorations in public health and associated premature mortalities. Fires also contribute substantially to global CO2 emissions and other widespread negative environmental impacts. Many fires occur over drained peatland areas. Climate change and existing land use trends mean that, without intervention, peat fire frequency and impact are expected to increase. The only long-term intervention is to retain the natural hydrology of intact peat swamp forests and raise water levels in disturbed areas. However, the costs of restoring and maintaining peat condition across huge peatland areas (~250K km2 in SE Asia) are enormous. The planning and prioritisation of such activities, as well as monitoring intervention effectiveness, is therefore vital. Furthermore, better observations of peat condition also enable improved understanding of the delivery of peatland ecosystem services. Satellite observations of peat condition can play a hugely valuable role in peatland monitoring, but currently are under-exploited. A recent advance in satellite interferometric SAR (InSAR) data processing by University of Nottingham (UoN) shows a remarkable capability to map peat condition (via vertical displacement), even when under a forest canopy. The PASSES project will combine this capability with information derived from conventional satellite measurement techniques to develop a comprehensive peatland monitoring service. PASSES will also demonstrate that wide area, routine, comprehensive monitoring of peatland can now also be cost effective, through exploitation of freely available, continuous observations from satellites through the EU Copernicus programme and exploitation of emerging industrial hosted processing capabilities

ILO-DFID Partnership Programme on Fair Recruitment and Decent Work for Women Migrant Workers in South Asia and the Middle East -Phase II

International Labour Organization (ILO)

The ILO-DFID partnership programme is a five-year, inter-regional development cooperation programme addressing forced labour. It constitutes a second phase of the previous Work in Freedom Programme (2013-2018) The overall aim of the programme is to reduce vulnerability to trafficking and forced labour of women and girls across migration pathways leading to the care work and textiles, clothing, leather and footwear industries of South Asia and Arab States. The project will contribute towards bringing about a sustained situation where women and girls in South Asia and Arab States are less vulnerable to trafficking and forced labour in emerging sectors of migrant employment. The programme will address key drivers and vulnerabilities of human trafficking, such as (a) gender and other forms of discrimination, distress migration and poor working and living conditions, through an integrated prevention strategy of (1) targeted social protection and empowerment, (2) fair recruitment practices and (3) evidence based policy advocacy for decent work options. At least 350,000 women and girls will be reached at source and destination in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh, Oman, Bahrein, Lebanon and Jordan . If policy recommendations are implemented, the programme could indirectly reach over one million. Key stakeholders will include governments, social partners, the private sector, NGOs and importantly, the voice and participation of women migrant workers themselves.

Serological tools for COVID-19 control and vaccine roll-out in Southeast Asia

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has caused immeasurable burden on economies and public health globally, including in Asia. New diagnostics for detecting the present and past exposure to the virus have been developed, and vaccines are emerging for clinical evaluation and roll-out. As the number of cases plateau, the exit strategy of Governments will involve the use of surveillance and contact tracing to limit the damage of future sporadic outbreaks in the short to medium term, while vaccination will ideally lead to elimination. However, many of the tests and vaccines under evaluation are based on the same biological targets, and infection control activities will need to distinguish immune responses to vaccines and those elicited by SARS-CoV-2 infection, which cannot yet be achieved with current front-line rapid testing kits. With this in mind, we propose to investigate alternative immunological targets arising from LSHTM modelling, informatic tools and laboratory work. These targets will be assessed within ongoing collaborations with government research institutes and hospitals in Thailand and The Philippines, who are at the forefront of clinical management and infection control in the COVID-19 response. These sites have pre-existing biological samples and data collected for diagnosis and treatment that will be used in the proposed project. We will evaluate new biological targets and establish assays that can be implemented by these countries to assist a surveillance system to monitor the progress of vaccination and SARS-CoV-2 elimination in the community. This will provide vital data for the direction of vaccine rollout and containment strategy. Most importantly, the tools developed can be easily implemented across other LMIC countries with a minimal laboratory set-up. With this, our goal, is to make a lasting contribution to Southeast Asian COVID-19 surveillance infrastructure, thereby improving the health and economy of the nations.
