GCRF: DAMS 2.0: Design and assessment of resilient and sustainable interventions in water-energy-food-environment Mega-Systems

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Our aim is of a world in which all DAC list countries make rapid progress to the achievement of the SDGs and the delivery of emissions reductions necessary for the Paris Climate Change Agreement by selecting, designing, financing, and managing dams to meet local, national and regional development needs and preferences. To fulfil this aim we set the following objective: to transform how new dams and systems of new and existing dams are assessed, selected, designed, and operated to provide water, food, and energy security for all. This goal will be achieved through both research (the creation of new knowledge) and capacity development (raised capacities of partner and non-partner organisations), underpinned by development of shared interdisciplinary tools that integrate engineering (on system modelling, dam selection, design and operation), social sciences (on economic, social and political and processes and impacts), physical sciences (climate, hydrology, ecology) and agricultural sciences (crop production systems). Our specific objectives are: 1 To deepen understanding of how nexus system interventions (new dams, or systems of dams, and their operation) cascade through socio-economic, engineered, ecological and political systems, and use this knowledge to help stakeholders develop and negotiate solutions that are economically, socially and environmentally beneficial. Specifically, we will replace the current approach of designing dams in isolation with a whole systems-based approach that combines conceptual and numerical models of socio-economic/natural/engineered systems with novel decision-analysis techniques. 2 To enhance the technical and institutional capacity of partner and non-partner researchers and policy-makers to ensure that dam decision-making leads to economically, socially, and environmentally desirable outcomes. Specifically, we seek to move from 'cut and paste' 'Terms of Reference' documents (ToRs) when dam-building projects are put out to tender to ToRs crafted to achieve development outcomes that are sustainable and equitable. 3 To create a cross-disciplinary network of researchers and policy-influencers and inter-disciplinary tools for dam decision-making globally, which will continue to operate after programme completion and that can transfer learning to the 'next generation' of nexus system planners world-wide. Reaching those specific objectives will be done so as to be able to satisfactorily respond to the following urgent questions which are the heart of our Nexus system research agenda on dams: 1 What's happening now? Who is selecting, designing, and financing dams and systems of dams today; what approaches and tools do they use; and, what shapes and incentivises decisions about dam selection and operation? 2 What should be improved? What technical and political knowledge is required so that new dams can be selected and designed to maximise and appropriately allocate benefits, promote resilient and sustainable development, and minimise conflict and socio-ecological loss; what decision processes need improving; and, should a wider set of stakeholders be invited into the decision process? 3 How? What skills, approaches, processes, tools and academic/professional networks would help create a new generation of engineers, applied social scientists and policy analysts in the UK, in cases study countries and in other countries to achieve our mission?

Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

'Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality' (henceforth KNOW) will address the challenge of achieving urban equality in cities in the Global South. The SDG 11, to achieve cities which are safe, inclusive, resilient and sustainable, and the New Urban Agenda adopted at Habitat III in Quito, 2016, emphasise inequality as one of the main obstacles to achieving prosperity and resilience in cities. KNOW focuses on building capacity to research urban equality in the developing world and among ODA researchers in the UK. The project brings together a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and international team to develop innovative long-term programmes of knowledge co-production for urban equality among governments, communities, businesses, and academia. The objectives of KNOW are: 1. Transformative Research for Urban Equality: to co-produce knowledge to activate transformations towards urban equality in selected cities in the global south, with a focus on redistributive and integrated actions to address prosperity, resilience and extreme poverty. This research will engage with diverse groups of people and aspects of their lives which often go unrecognised, unmeasured, or made invisible in nine cities of the Global South. Firstly, it will give them agency within a process of knowledge co-production. Secondly, it will generate missing data and ideas needed to develop policy, planning and governance approaches that are responsive to real lives, opportunities and processes in the cities where they are applied. For communities, the project will support processes to improve recognition and participation in urban governance, and deliver context-specific projects whose outcomes will benefit them directly. For local governments, the project will help to develop, implement and assess policy and strategies to deliver urban equality. 2. Building Research Capacity: to build and strengthen research capacity in selected DAC countries and the UK to tackle the challenges and opportunities of vulnerable urban communities through partnerships of equivalence between networks and organisations of the poor, government, the private sector and academia. KNOW will expand the capacities of a wide variety of actors to participate in collaborative knowledge production and pathways to impact prosperity, resilience and extreme poverty in the selected cities. This involves defining research problems together with key city actors; involving both experts and urban citizens together in learning-by-doing research processes; development an ethics of practice; and integrating impact strategies in the research process. 3. Developing Urban Learning Hubs: to jointly build responsive Urban Learning Hubs in target countries to co-produce relevant knowledge to analyse, plan, monitor and compare city progress towards national and global goals on urban equality, in particular the SDGs and the Habitat III New Urban Agenda. Through the programme of research, the project will strengthen Urban Learning Hubs in selected cities and regions. This will involve consolidating networks of actors with the interest in and capability to address multiple dimensions of urban equality in each location. The outcome will be context specific Urban Learning Hubs that can act as intermediaries between multiple actors delivering research and action for urban equality.

RELIEF: Refugees, Education, Learning, Information Technology, and Entrepreneurship for the Future

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

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.

Gender Responsive Resilience and Intersectionality in Policy and Practice (GRRIPP) - Networking Plus Partnering for Resilience

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

A central aim of the Network+ will be a critical interrogation of key concepts as part of our research leadership role. This will extend beyond a scholarly endeavour to encompass the policy and practice domains. We aim for GRRIPP to be an important global influencer of ideas, policies and practices. Creating a feedback loop of our research advances between the global, Municipal and community levels would allow us the see impact at local levels. Some of this work will be undertaken by regional teams but mostly this will come out of the Commissioning process. The GRRIPP project aims to support the evolution of gender and intersectionality, resilience and sustainability from descriptive heuristics to frameworks for transformation through establishing a new Network of Networks. This will allow the unpacking of these concepts and the development of knowledges that are critical and situated, indigenous and decolonial; establishing in-country research needs across different timeframes; collectively identifying the major indigenous problems which require our whole team's attention. We aim to support a stronger understanding of gender & intersectionality, and a much-improved ability to embed that understanding in policy and practice, which is absolutely critical for delivering the SDGs, theSendai Framework and other global challenges, in a way that leaves no-one behind. Through a paradigm shifting network of collaborators (ranging from academic to policy leading think tanks, practitioners and municipalities), this GCRF Network+ aims to nurture long-lasting and mutually beneficial collaborations between and among communities, municipalities, policy makers, scholars and international academic institutions; and to generate meaningful insights into considerations of gender responsive, risk aware, sustainable and resilient infrastructure in its various manifestations (human, political, economic, social, built) found in settlements at every scale. Knowledge building and excellence in research. The science behind this network and the research that will be developed will be driven by the host countries and their development challenges and will be socially relevant and academically cutting edge. Capacity-building and international partnerships. GRRIPP aims to devise a series of capacity building workshops and events which will allow the sharing of expertise and the development of skills and knowledge (e.g. trainings on proposal writing and joint 'write-shops' for preparing academic papers including on feminist writing) internationally, intra-nationally, and across discipline and sector. We expect our Regional Partners to be creative and innovative in the research and events they commission. Networking. The GRRIPP team is a network of experienced and productive networkers. We aim to: -Build in-country capacity (including UK) using agile techniques through networking and carryingout innovative and grounded for a sustainable trajectory of widely shared research and practice excellence. -Engage with other networking groups across UKRI networks and GCRF hubs. Engagement events and processes will include those sectors currently lacking (or resistant to) a gender dimension. -Regional Teams will include a networking mentoring function to support ECR. -As well as conventional network activities such as online webinars/round tables, we plan activities which are more grounded and co-produced, including from a feminist, decolonial and activist perspective, which will be determined as network members feel appropriate to their settings. -From our first Inception Meeting we will develop legacy plans to ensure the sustainability of the work we initiate or develop. A conscious aim of GRRIPP is to decolonise knowledge production and provide levels of autonomy for regional teams.

MRC Strategic Award to establish an International Centre for Genomic Medicine in Neuromuscular Diseases

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Our Mission To create a transcontinental genomics research and capacity building partnership between the UK and Official Development Assistance Lower and Middle Income Countries (ODA-LMICs) with an initial focus on India, Brazil, South Africa, Zambia & Turkey. We will discover new disease genes, define the genetic variants in known neuromuscular genes, understand comparative genetic architecture in different populations and explore disease mechanisms. We will dramatically increase the number of patients with an accurate genetic diagnosis, build "trial ready" cohorts and ultimately improve health outcomes for patients with this unmet health need drawn from a combined population of over 1.5 billion people. Our Vision To deliver a mature transcontinental clinical academic partnership led by a new group of outstanding clinical academics graduated from our training programme. They will be an enduring locally sustained legacy of expertise and they will harness genomics to improve the lives and health outcomes of children and adults with serious neuromuscular diseases (NMDs). Objectives 1. Establish an international clinical fellowship training programme to generate a group of highly trained clinical academics who will be a legacy of leaders in personalised genomic medicine in the LMICs. These fellows will establish enduring mutually beneficial collaborative scientific links with the UK NMD clinical and genetic expertise based in Newcastle, Cambridge and UCL. 2. Establish a core international bioinformatics platform, pipeline and cloud-based clinical and genetic database. Openly share phenotypic and genetic data and encourage other LMICs to join this collaborative programme. 3. Build ethnically diverse cohorts of children and adults with NMDs which we will deeply phenotype and comprehensively genotype. 4. Identify known and new disease genes and assess comparative genetic architecture of NMDs across four continents. Use this knowledge to understand phenotypic variability, disease progression and disease mechanisms. 5. Increase the number of patients in LMICs with a precise genetic diagnosis ultimately enabling delivery of a personalised disease management plan, based on care guidelines to identify and manage complications using widely available and cheap interventions to improve health outcomes. 6. Enhance genetic diagnostics in UK-based Indian, Brazilian, Turkish & African NMD patients. 7. Build sustainability after five years, through retention of trained fellows in LMICs and through collaboration with host institutions, patient organisations, and local health care providers.

Chicken or Egg: Drivers for Antimicrobial Resistance in Poultry in India (DARPI)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The main objectives of DARPI are: 1. Determine the drivers for antimicrobial use (AMU), by undertaking participatory rural appraisal and rapid ethnographic assessment at key stages along the broiler meat food system. 2. Map, define the socio-economic context and identify hotspots within the poultry meat food system, by quantifying AMU and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at key points of the system. 3. Determine rational use protocols and alternatives to AMs, through in vivo and in vitro studies that minimize AMR selection, and analyse risks for dissemination of AMR. 4. Co-design and assess AMU/AMR interventions with people who work and use the broiler meat food system. Objectives 1 and 2 are important for understanding the complexity of the drivers of AMU and AMR in the broiler meat system in its entirety and provide data that inform studies in Objective 3, and allow pressure points for AMU and AMR to be identified and visualised, which will aid the co-design of interventions with stakeholders for Objective 4. The supply chain from breeder to retail will be followed with integrated collection of qualitative and quantitative data, providing valuable opportunities for training in social design and ethnographic methodology. We will determine practices, use and the drivers for use of AM, and quantify the abundance and diversity of AMR along this chain, supported by in vivo and in vitro studies, including investigating alternatives to antimicrobials and alternative AMU strategies, with all of this subject to economic analysis. These will inform rational use and the development of participatory design tools to co-design and ensure that interventions are feasible, acceptable and cost-effective; with consideration of the future trajectory of the Indian poultry industry, so that approaches are scalable, sustainable and able to react to accommodate anticipated trajectory development within the Indian context. Objective 1 will be led by the by Royal Holloway University with the University of Arts and the Centre for Disease Dynamics Economics & Policy (CDDEP), but with involvement of other Indian institutes. Objective 2 will involve all institutes in contributing to data (qualitative, quantitative, economic) and sample collection, and analysis; specific work packages have been designed to contribute to these objectives, with the National Institute of Animal Biotechnology (NIAB) leading along with the University of Liverpool, Karnataka Veterinary Animal and Fisheries Sciences University (KVAFSU), and the Poultry Disease Diagnosis and Surveillance Laboratory (PDDSL) of the Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, contributing to metadata and sample collection and determining the presence and context of AMR in the broiler meat chain. The economic context will be led by the University of Edinburgh, Liverpool and CDDEP and they will also contribute to objectives 3 and 4. Objective 3 will be led by Indian Council for Agricultural Research - Directorate of Poultry Research and Liverpool, with contributions from NIAB, KVAFSU and PDDSL, with the risk of dissemination addressed by Royal Veterinary College London, who will also contribute to data analysis across objectives 1-3. Finally, the co-design aspects of objective 4 will be led by the University of Arts and CDDEP.
