GCRF Urban Disaster Risk Hub

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Overarching Aim: To reduce disaster risk for the poor in tomorrow's cities, by making urban development in low and middle-income countries resilient to multiple disasters. The Hub will co-produce new understanding of the multi-hazard context in four target cities around specific, ongoing policy development and implementation programmes, catalysing a transition from crisis management to risk-informed planning in these cities, and globally through collaborating International governance organisations. The Hub will strengthen national, city and community capacity to implement and track the SDGs by building resilience of the poor (1.5) including strengthening gender equality (5C), to reduce human and economic losses in cities (11.5), through disaster management (11.B and 13.1) and climate change adaptation plans (13.2) with strengthened communication and capacity building for climate change adaptation integrated into broader development activities (13.3). Objectives: 1. Carry out forensic examinations of urban risk, exposing physical and social root causes and drivers of historical multi-hazard crises, understanding the decision-making context and identifying opportunities for more inclusive processes, including those enabling gender equity. 2. Set up Partnerships, including researchers and stakeholders, with a City Hub Office, in each target city. 3. Refocus physical science from concentrating on process to quantifying controls on human disaster risk reduction in a multi-hazard environment. 4. Quantify and model physical and social vulnerability and exposure at unprecedented resolution. 5. Integrate high-resolution layers of multi-hazard disaster risk into the Global Risk Model by developing new techniques for nested risk modelling within the main UN platform for global risk analysis. 6. Co-develop decision support tools to bridge the gap between currently existing large-scale analyses and the scale of city management intervention. 7. Combine the new multi-hazard risk models with detailed analysis of social and physical vulnerability and decision-making contexts into a framework for action-oriented community and city disaster risk planning. 8. Use multi-hazard scenarios in this new framework to examine future development choices and stimulate engagement and innovation to generate and enact risk-reducing options. 10. Build capacity for integrated planning through mentoring of junior professionals, exchanges between practice and academic partners and the training of PhD students funded by partners. Outputs and Outcomes (for high level city and international outcomes see Theory of Change), technical outputs are: 1. High-resolution validated models of multi-hazard risk in its societal context at the correct precision and scale to reflect individual experience and inform urban development planning. 2. Precise descriptions of exemplar multi-hazard risk contexts leading to recommendations for risk and development planning policy to mitigate risk accumulation in future development. 3. Tools and methods for citizen-led and city-level monitoring, evaluation and audit of disaster risk and futures planning, aligning city risk assessments with the Sendai Framework and targeted SDG indicators, facilitating city leadership in - and direct engagement with - the global policy agenda. 4. City Partnerships to facilitate new governance relationships between city authorities and relevant sectors to deploy Hub methods and tools and to champion city leadership in knowledge exchange. 5. A national and international legacy of active research and policy groups with strong inter-connections and links to UK science and international governance organisations to amplify the urban voice in future international risk governance. 6. Legacy vehicles: risk assessment and action planning tools owned by city and international partners to fill strategic technical gaps that will be modified and deployed during and after the Hub.

GCRF: Tobacco control capacity programme

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

OUR OVERALL AIM is to improve research capacity in LMICs to conduct high quality studies that will generate evidence on how to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by tobacco use and to advance key development priorities. In doing this we will draw on an established framework for building research capacity [1] that has six main elements: 1. Co-creation of research close to practice; 2. Infrastructures; 3. Skills and confidence-building; 4. Linkages and collaborations; 5. Actionable dissemination; and 6. Sustainability. OUR OBJECTIVES are to: - Develop a consortium of partners led by the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies, a UKCRC Centre of Excellence. UKCTAS will collaborate with Research Organisations in LMICs in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, along with Cancer Research UK's International Tobacco Control Programme. The team will be supported by a range of organisations and funders (Linkages and collaboration). - Establish and train a cohort of post-doctoral fellows in the participating LMIC Centres. Additional research capacity will be developed in UK Universities with research fellows supporting the programme (Infrastructure) - Develop new studies focused on tobacco control through a process of co-creation of research topics, data collection approaches and plans for dissemination undertaken between participating academics, government and NGO partners in each LMIC country (Co-creation of research closer to practice) - Apply findings from these new studies to inform the implementation of effective tobacco control measures (reducing the demand for, and supply of, tobacco products) in each LMIC, in the UK and other countries (Actionable dissemination) - Engage post-doctoral fellows, co-applicants and collaborators in existing and new training opportunities in relevant research methods, tobacco control research and advocacy skills which will be offered by UK and LMIC Universities and Cancer Research UK (Skills and confidence building) - Invest in wider stakeholder engagement (for example, Ministries of Health and Finance) throughout to identify pathways to impact and future options for the sustainability of the programme (Linkages, collaboration and sustainability) These will be realised through a programme of work with an emphasis on research that will inform the implementation of the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The FCTC is central to the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 'Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all, at all ages'. SDG3.10 states: 'Strengthen the implementation of the WHO FCTC in all countries, as appropriate'. Our capacity building activities will support researchers to conduct work that cuts across the main elements of effective tobacco control and is also relevant to economic development and addressing the causes and consequences of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). However, the new studies that we will conduct have a particular focus on three research questions that will directly contribute to the realisation of additional UN Sustainable Development Goals. These are: 1. To what extent do national approaches to tobacco taxation align with international best practice, and how can these be enhanced to reduce tobacco consumption? (SDGs 17.1 and 17.3) 2. How can local capacity to eliminate illicit trade in tobacco products be increased, advancing implementation of the Protocol to the FCTC? (SDGs 16.5 and 16.a) 3. What are the principal barriers experienced by governments in protecting public health policy from tobacco industry interference, with specific reference to taxation and illicit trade? (SDGs 16 and 17.14) Further detail on our objectives, activities, research questions, proposed research and partnerships to achieve our proposed programme is included in the attached Case for Support.

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.

Improving healthcare at the intersection of gender and protracted displacement amongst Somali and Congolese refugees and IDPs

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has developed a framework for addressing the health-related objectives in the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration (GCM), and has indicated how responses to migration and health - including in the context of protracted displacement - will support action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our development-based approach to neglected, chronic, gendered mental health conditions associated with violence and conflict amongst IDPs in Eastern DRC and Somalia, and Congolese and Somali refugees in Kenya and South Africa has two principal Aims: to support the right to healthcare and Universal Heatlh Coverage (UHC) in contexts of protracted displacement and vulnerability (SDG3) and to improve gender equality in the context of gendered access to healthcare services (SDG5). In sequential order, our Objectives are: 1. To identify and analyse current policy processes that respond to the health needs of forcibly displaced people and thereby identify existing models for integrating those populations into health systems that could be made applicable to our various protracted displacement contexts. 2. To identify key neglected chronic mental health conditions (and comorbid chronic physical health conditions) associated with protracted displacement, conflict, and gendered violence. 3. To map the types and locations of healthcare providers that displaced people turn to for treatment for chronic mental health conditions (and comorbid physical health conditions). 4. To document how gender and other factors influence health seeking by displaced people for physical and mental health conditions associated with displacement, conflict and violence. 5. To indicate how displaced people can be supported to help reshape healthcare systems and delivery mechanisms that are more resilient and responsive to their needs. 6. To analyse how access to healthcare for displaced women and men (including LGBTIQ+ people) is affected by local, national, regional, and global health systems and refugee policy. 7. To establish how to support plural healthcare systems to encompass diagnosis and treatment of neglected chronic physical and mental health conditions associated with protracted displacement, conflict, and gendered violence.

LegumeSELECT: Science-driven Evaluation of LEgume Choice for Transformed livelihoods

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Our goal is to increase the contribution of legumes to smallholder livelihoods in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) through more appropriate legume selection decisions. We will achieve this by further developing the existing decision support framework 'LegumeCHOICE' by combining existing data with new data from experimentation to resolve legume traits, and evaluation of individual farm biophysical and socioeconomic contexts. This will provide knowledge and tools to aid smallholder farmers in making rational decisions for smart integration and use of multi-purpose legumes for an enhanced production environment. We will deliver this through three linked WPs with the following objectives: O1.1: To synthesise data on multi-purpose legume productivity, quality and use across SSA (WP1.1). O1.2: To further develop the existing prototype 'LegumeCHOICE' decision support framework with data from WPs 1.1 and 2 into a robust tool fit for use by the development community (WP 1.2). O2.1: To characterise root traits (nodulation, soil exploration, biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) potential) of annual legumes of different classes (WP 2.1). O2.2: To establish the quantitative importance and mechanisms of legume contributions to soil C and N stocks and nutrient supply, and under residue management and maize intercrop/rotation (WP 2.2). O2.3: To quantify BNF, nutrient- and water-use efficiency in a range of legume-based systems to determine the robustness of trait-soil-management relationships for enhancing the predictive power of the developed 'LegumeCHOICE' tool (WP 2.3). O3.1: To propose and validate legume intensification scenarios based on WPs 1 and 2, for a range of specific contexts of spatiotemporal niches (agro-ecologies, farming systems, production objectives, farmer typologies) (WP 3.1). O3.2: To embed the 'LegumeCHOICE' tool with ongoing development initiatives to ensure uptake of findings, engagement of partners, links to other ongoing projects and legacy (WP 3.2).

Improving the resilience of informal settlements to fire (IRIS-Fire)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

IRIS-Fire aims to develop new methods and tools required to evaluate and model the fire risks within South African informal settlements of the Western Cape so that situationally appropriate and cost-effective solutions and strategies can be suggested to improve the resilience of South African informal settlement communities against large-scale conflagrations. The research will examine the hypothesis that fire spread in informal settlements is similar to that in wildland forest fires, and so the techniques used to manage and understand such fires could be used interchangeably. To achieve the aim of the project and examine its hypothesis, the below objectives have been identified: *Create a best practice resilience based technical guideline for improving informal settlements based on workshops with stakeholders and evidenced based research delivered within this research proposal; *Perform unique single and multiple (2-3 shacks) real-scale shack fire experiments within the UK to quantify the parameters required for simulation *Perform unique large area outdoor real-scale shack tests in South Africa to provide fire spread data and quantify the effects of wind and weather on fire spread as input data for modelling large-scale conflagrations. *Model the range of fire tests using a combination of existing computational fluid dynamic simulators (e.g. fire dynamic simulator) to assess our model assumptions *Develop new sub-models pertaining to informal settlement fires based on the quantified characterisations and validation data from experimental programs. *Produce a framework and risk-mapping concept procedure for informal settlements and apply to the informal settlements of the Western Cape. *Deliver capacity building and knowledge transfer workshops and CPD events to a range of audiences including forensic analysis of informal settlement fires *Perform ground surveys of 1000 shacks across different informal settlements to enhance current data on their stochastic topology.
