Title

Infrastructure Knowledge Programme Policy Research - Regional Infrastructure for Trade Facilitation

Description

The Department for International Development (DFID) is pleased to announce a call for research on ‘Regional Infrastructure for Trade Facilitation - Impact on Growth and Poverty Reduction’. This theme has been identified as a priority area for improved evidence both within DFID and amongst external stakeholders. The research outputs will provide evidence to support an increased focus on economic infrastructure in DFID as part of the drive for an increased focus on economic development. It will support DFID in improving the design of regional infrastructure programmes and in integrating into future programming the lessons learnt from the closure of the Trademark Southern Africa (TMSA) programme. The research will explore: • The evidence that improvements in regional infrastructure designed to increase cross-border trade in Sub-Saharan Africa (through reducing the costs of trade, including costs caused by delays – principally transport) result in poverty reduction: (1) indirectly as a result of economic growth; (2) directly. • The potential risks to the poor created by trade growth resulting from improvements in regional infrastructure. • Policy interventions that have the capacity to increase benefits for the poor and mitigate potential harm to the poor. Application from academic institutions, consultancies and NGOs/think tanks are all welcome. Applicants must ensure the proposed research will be carried out to a high ethical standard and must ensure that any potential ethical issues have been considered and explain how these will be addressed.
