CIFSRF – Next call for concept notes on food security


IDRC is pleased to announce that the next open competitive call for concept notes as part of the Canadian International Food Security Research Fund (CIFSRF) will be launched in late January 2011. The deadline for submission of concept notes is planned for March 23, 2011.

The CIFSRF is a 5-year, CA$62-million fund that supports research partnerships between Canadian and developing-country research organizations to apply research to find lasting solutions to fight hunger and food insecurity in the developing world. The Fund is a core element of CIDA’s Food Security Strategy and of IDRC’s food security programming priorities.

Project budgets under the upcoming call will be in the range of CA$1 to $5 million. Project duration must not exceed 30 months, including field research and final reporting.

More details about the upcoming call and instructions will be available on the IDRC website as soon as the call is launched and an announcement will be made on the CIFSRF listserv. If you would like to subscribe to the listserv, please let us know at
