FOODSECURE aims to design effective and sustainable strategies for assessing and addressing the challenges of food and nutrition security. 

FOODSECURE provides a set of analytical instruments to experiment, analyse, and coordinate the effects of short and long term policies related to achieving food security.

In this respect the project challenges a number of generally accepted ‘truths’ about rural and city development, and the importance and implication of migration in shaping these. It thereby questions the overall negative interpretations of the economic role of rural-urban mobility and migration in sub-Saharan Africa and generates new insights into the relationship between rural-city connections and poverty dynamics.

DESAFIO literally means “challenge” in both Portuguese and Spanish, and the main aim of this new project is to make a contribution towards tackling what is arguably one of the major challenges facing Brazil -and Latin American and Caribbean countries more generally- in the twenty-first century: eradicating structural social inequality in the access to essential water and sanitation services (WSS).

SEATIDE aims to take a new look at the benefits and risks of integration in Southeast Asia. SEATIDE researchers use a field study approach to take national and transnational perspectives on:

ECOPAS (European Consortium for Pacific Studies) is a multidisciplinary project designed to provide coordination and support to research and policy communities on issues connected to climate change and related processes in the Pacific Islands region, in order to define better options for sustainable development.

The Pacific is notable for the discrepancy between the contribution of its small economies to global climate change, and the severity of climate change effects experienced by its peoples. Linkages between research networks and policy interfaces will contribute to more context-sensitive EU external action, and will set a future research agenda for social science and humanities in the Pacific.

The overall objective of the TEMPER project consists in providing a comprehensive assessment of the pros and cons of recent initiatives to promote circular migration, as an alternative to more traditional forms of temporary and permanent migration. These initiatives often rely on a poor understanding of the reasons why some migrants spontaneously return an circulate, and others do not. To overcome this lack of understanding, the TEMPER project will pursue three main objectives:

(1) it will identify the main drivers of return and circulation decisions of migrants recently involved in temporary and permanent migration,,

(2) it will measure and explain the role that different programs, and immigration policies at large, have played in shaping those individual decisions and,

(3) it will assess the impact that different types of temporary, permanent and circular mobility have for migrant and non-migrant workers, their families and their employers.

Chronic Poverty Advisory Network is  a network of researchers   policy makers and practitioners across 15 developing countries   focused on tackling chronic poverty and getting to zero extreme poverty and deprivation.

Global Development Network  is  a public International Organization that builds research capacity in development globally.

Department of International Development leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. They are ending the need for aid by creating jobs, unlocking the potential of girls and women and helping to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit.

SEA-EU-NET represents a ASEAN-EU Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation jointly tackling global challenges such as “Food”, “Water”, “Health” and “STI policy issues”.

Created in 1984, the RPCA is an international network for co-operation and co-ordination under the political leadership of ECOWAS and UEMOA and co-animated by CILSS and the SWAC/OECD Secretariat. It brings together Sahelian and West African countries, bilateral and multilateral co-operation agencies, humanitarian agencies and international NGOs, agricultural professional organisations, civil society and the private sector and regional and international information systems, with ECOWAS, UEMOA and CILSS at the centre.
