SIANI offers seed funding to expert groups that support its vision and mission to understand emerging issues in food security and nutrition in low-income countries. Expert groups comprise a diverse group of stakeholders (academia, NGOs, private business, government, etc.) to prepare publications, organize events, and engage in other activities that strengthen the Swedish resource base and their partners. Expert groups do not need to be geographically located in Sweden. However, if an expert group is established outside Sweden, it needs to have a clear link to the Swedish resource base and Swedish funded activities. The deadline for proposals is 15 July 2017.
All proposals must clearly demonstrate how the proposed group will deliver on gender equality and how its activities contribute to the alleviation of poverty. In addition, proposals should clearly fit under one of the following focus areas of the SIANI programme:
- Rural transformation
- Agricultural production and trade
- Landscape management
- Climate change, resilience, peace and conflict
- Nutrition and health
