Call for scientific and non-academic reviewers


Deadline: 25 November 2016


Dear all,


Now with the New Urban Agenda adopted, the International Council for Science in partnership with the Network of African Science Academies, and the International Social Science Council will support 10 col­laborative research projects across Africa (to the value of up to 90,000 Euro each over two years) in 2017 in order to ensure that science can effectively contribute to the implementation of this Urban Agenda in Africa. These projects are expected to generate new solutions-oriented knowl­edge that will help develop new urban paradigms in Africa and make African cities more resilient, adaptable and healthier (for more details, please see the document attached).


We are now looking for scientists and non-academic experts with expertise in energy systems, air pollution, health, provision of health services, climate mitigation and adaptation, land use and urban planning, and disaster risk reduction in the urban environment to review full proposals between Nov 2016- mid Jan 2017. Experience in inter- and transdisciplinary research would be of value. Guidelines for review will be provided.


You can also contribute to our efforts in making African cities more sus­tainable and resilient by reviewing proposal(s). If you are interested or know relevant experts, please contact me by 25 November. Thank you!
