SSRP small grants fund

2023 marks a pivotal year as we approach the mid-point in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With our seventh small grants funding round, we continue to support collaborations across the University of Sussex and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) that help to deliver science towards the SDGs. This particular SSRP funding round aims to strengthen relationships with international partners in low- and middle-income countries alongside connections with local agents in Sussex and the South Downs to ‘advance sustainability research with impact’.

Sussex researchers from across SSRP’s main partner schools and beyond enter this year with a modest pot of funding to build on previous research, scale up existing impactful work and pilot new project areas. The awarded projects will help to tackle global and local sustainability challenges – from integrating public health and conservation initiatives; creating sustainable land use systems in the South Downs; protecting the Rights of Nature; and exploring the relationships between biodiversity trends, subsistence poaching and socio-economic factors to pushing the boundaries in the area of menstrual health through inclusive environmenstrual action.
