Locations: The WISH2ACTION Consortium operates across Lot 2 countries, specifically: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burundi, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Pakistan, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe. The four WISH outputs they are: Output 1 – Community and Individual Choice Output 2 – Sustainability Output 3 – Access to Services Output 4 – Global Goods The combined strengths of WISH2ACTION’s consortium allows for the strong integration of service delivery (Output 3) with social behaviour change activities to generate demand and break down barriers to access (Output 1), and with advocacy and accountability initiatives to strengthen national ownership (Output 2), all of which contribute to generating models, tools and evidence for advancing SRHR (Output 4) in a sustainable way.
The Prosperity Fund cross-HMG 'Digital Access Programme' is a DFID-led partnership with FCO and DCMS. It aims to catalyse more inclusive, affordable, safe and secure digital access for excluded and underserved communities in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Brazil and Indonesia. Increased digital inclusion in the programme countries will form the basis for more thriving digital ecosystems that generate high-skilled jobs, opportunities for local digital entrepreneurship focused on country-specific development challenges, as well as potential partnerships with international and UK business aimed at mutual prosperity. The Digital Access programme will also focus on learning about sustainable models and enablers for digital inclusion. The learnings will be shared with key stakeholders and other partner countries, thereby amplifying the impact of the programme.
The recipient of this support will be private sector, financial institutions and not‐for profit organisations or partnerships thereof. The ultimate beneficiaries of the services are poor, vulnerable and excluded people of DRC, especially women and adolescent girls, in the agriculture, renewable energy and financial sectors, in up to 5 provinces of the DRC.
The RELIEF Centre aims to mount an innovative and breakthrough social science project of global significance that will speed up the sustainability transitions that the world critically requires in the context of large scale movement of peoples. The core will be a programme of research and civic engagement, centred around the research questions and objectives below. A vision of future prosperity for Lebanon - applicable also to refugees' home countries - will be developed with indicators and metrics (ways to measure value creation) that ordinary citizens can use to determine whether their communities and governments are on track to achieve their vision. Here the aim is to develop a radical new vision of prosperity within a world on the move, but to do so in the context of Lebanon and the refugee crisis with the intention to develop a model/template that could be used elsewhere. Research Questions: 1. What does inclusive growth and sustainable prosperity look like in the context of large-scale movement of people? 2. How can we improve the quality of life for all in urban environments in the Lebanon? 3. How do we drive innovation and measure value creation in the context of the Lebanon? 4. How can the research and knowledge transfer capacities of Universities be reconfigured to develop innovative responses to these challenges? These research questions will answered by addressing the following objectives: O1. Develop an innovative and integrated approach to sustainable prosperity for 'hosts' and 'refugees' in Lebanon based on social and economic inclusiveness, with concrete and locally specific learning and knowledge transfer outcomes at the core O2. Undertake research on the needs, barriers and opportunities for social and economic transformation for prosperity and innovation in the context of Lebanon and the possible return of refugees to their countries of origin, with specific capabilities and knowledge outcomes O3. Engage stakeholders - including academic networks, policy makers, business, civil society organisations, communities and citizen scientists - in the co-design, co-production and implementation of localised and contextualised options based on robust research evidence O4. Using established standards and taking into account existing gaps, develop new measures of value that enable good decisions through modelling, simulation and visualisation of data sets O5. Focus efforts on sustainable collaboration across and between UK and Lebanese higher education (HE) institutions to develop innovative responses to learning and knowledge transfer with potential relevance to other contexts of movement/migration O6. Demonstrate and develop the role of social science in leading new forms of multidisciplinary knowledge production across disciplines and sectors of intervention to develop a shared intellectual agenda and deliver innovative research to support and inform high level impact O7. Use digital technologies to build new knowledge sharing platforms for innovative forms of collaboration between Universities and communities, both for research and for capacity development and knowledge transfer O8. Develop a new generation of scholars able and trained to work across disciplines and to use quantitative and qualitative data, to co-produce research excellence with multiple stakeholders, including local communities, and cross policy boundaries to ensure long-term change.
