Applications are open for the Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) Knowledge into Use Awards 2022. GRP in collaboration with the Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and the International Center for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), through The Resilience Knowledge Coalition, is launching the “knowledge into use” awards in the lead-up to the Resilience Hub at COP27.
The Knowledge into Use awards are for innovative and creative ways of facilitating the use of resilience knowledge. These could be games, cartoons, arts, theater, exhibits of local and indigenous knowledge or audio-visual content (movies, songs, etc). These innovative and creative ideas should be based on sound evidence published in the form of research papers or reports.
The broad themes for this contest include Urban, Rural and Coastal Resilience. Harmonising science with elements of justice, equity and indigenous and local knowledge expressed creatively using evidence that exists on these three themes is highly encouraged. The most interesting concepts will be awarded cash awards with the expectation that the award money will act as an enabler for the individual/group/grassroots organisation to implement or express the idea creatively in time for an exhibition within 6-8 months.
The concept note/ idea should be a 200 word brief on the challenges being solved and the evidence generated on enhancing resilience. For instance, mangroves have the potential to act as resilient natural infrastructure to manage storm surges and support community livelihoods. If this knowledge is depicted through an entertaining comic strip, then that could be a contender for the cash award.
