The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX), a joint endeavour with Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity. 

This call is seeking proposals from individual organizations, or consortia of multiple organizations, to become implementing partners in the new GPE KIX Regional Observatories on Education System Resilience initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to contribute to the improvement of education system resilience of GPE partner countries through research and evidence. The task of implementing partners will be to establish regional observatories, conduct applied research and mobilize its findings. The call expects to fund six regional observatories: one in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), one in East, West, Central and Southern Africa, and four in Europe, Middle East and North Africa, Asia and the Pacific (EMAP).    

This initiative follows on the GPE KIX COVID-19 Observatory project. Building on the insights of the original project and a recent scoping study conducted in preparation for the call, this new initiative focuses on: 

  • Examination of existing practices related to education system resilience in GPE partner countries. 
  • Anticipation of future disruptions to education systems in GPE partner countries.

KIX will allocate CAD4 million for the entire initiative through this call and each individual project will be 28 months in duration.
