In December 2020, IPA announced two parallel funding strands, one focused on validating measures of soft skills (RFP can be found here) and one focused on innovative and advanced research methods (RFP can be found here). To read about the projects funded to date see here, and check back in this space for future updates.
Women’s Work, Entrepreneurship, and Skilling (WWES) Initiative
In response to the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women and girls, IPA launched the Women’s Work, Entrepreneurship, and Skilling (WWES) Initiative as part of RECOVR (Research for Effective COVID-19 Responses). The WWES Initiative combines data collection efforts, research projects, and policy work, focusing on two key themes: (1) women's work, entrepreneurship and time use and (2) youth skilling and school-to-work transitions. Our Request for Proposals will support piloting, data collection, analysis, dissemination, and policy engagement activities. The deadline to submit a proposal is January 27, 2021.
