Deadline for applications: September 20, 2021, at noon (East African Time)
Background and context
The University of Dar es Salaam, in collaboration with the GAP research group, would like to invite interested and qualified candidates holding a graduate degree in Natural Resources Assessment and management, Climate Change, Social Sciences and/or relevant disciplines to apply for fully funded PhD positions under the GAP research programme.
The GAP research programme GAP focuses on analysing how (de)centralized modes of governance influence the distribution and use of finance for adaptation during implementation, using a comparative
study of Tanzania and Kenya. GAP’s overall goal is to provide evidence for how and by whom decisions are taken, and on what and where adaptation funds are spent. GAP is organized around 3 analytical components, each unfolded in a work package (WP), focused on: the financial architecture of adaptation finance in Tanzania and Kenya (WP1); the politics
of adaptation finance in Tanzania and Kenya (WP2), and building North-South partnerships and capacity for scrutinising adaptation finance and make policy recommendations for how they may become transformative (WP3).
GAP is funded by the Consultative Research Committee for Development Research (FFU) under Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DANIDA).
