Programmes

Over the past years, EADI has acquired significant capacity to manage and coordinate extensive research projects, such as the ones presented below. EADI´s access to a broad spectrum of experts in universities, research centres, NGOs and think-tanks in the development field constitute an excellent basis for strong project consortia formation.

The dedicated team of project officers in Bonn are ready to advise the EADI members at all stages of their involvement with EU research funding.

Breaking the Vicious Circle between Poverty and Ill Health. Are Cash Transfers and Social Health Protection Policies in Ghana and Kenya Mutually Complementary?

The project aims to develop new strategic knowledge on the effectiveness of cash transfer programmes and social health protection policies in Ghana and Kenya. It focuses on the accumulation of health-related human capital and its spill-over effects on intermediate inclusive growth objectives, particularly for poor women and children. It seeks to understand if, and under which conditions, these policies are mutually complementary. The research project will extend existing research by combining cost effectiveness with political-economic considerations. This will be achieved by engaging in a multi-level and interactive process with researchers, ministries, and practitioners to co-produce knowledge.

Urban Chances - City Growth and the Sustainability Challenge

Chance2Sustain examines how governments and citizens in cities with differing patterns of urban economic growth make use of participatory (or integrated) spatial knowledge management to direct urban governance towards more sustainable development. Participatory spatial knowledge management is the main concept we use to study this issue, as it reflects a strategic resource, which all stakeholders can contribute to urban governance processes towards sustainable development.

IKM Emergent

IKM Emergent has been a research and communication programme founded on a critical analysis of current practice in the use of all forms of knowledge, including formal research, within the international development sector. IKM Emergent believes that historically the development sector has adopted a too linear and simplistic understanding of how development takes place and therefore of how it needs to act in order to make change happen.
