IAMCR is pleased to announce that Sneh Gupta (India) and the team of Solomon Oyeleye and Ifedolapo Ademosu (Nigeria) have been awarded research grants from the UNICEF/IAMCR Communication for Development Research Fund to support research projects that will advance our understanding of how Communication for Development (C4D) contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The awards, worth USD 4,000 each, are funded by UNICEF and managed by IAMCR.
The fund supports research that can link to the work of the Global Alliance for Social and Behaviour Change (GASBC), a coalition of organisations from diverse fields, united by a common commitment to building informed and engaged societies. UNICEF and IAMCR are founding members of the Alliance.
Sneh, Solomon and Ademosu will receive cash support, mentoring, and the coordination of a peer review of the final papers. They will present their work at IAMCR’s 2021 online conference and will discuss their work at webinars open to members of the UNICEF and IAMCR communities.
