2020 HG4RR Exchange Programme

Call for Applications for the 2020 HG4RR Exchange Programme is now open.

The main objective of the Home Gardens for Recovery and Resilience (HG4RR) Network is to establish an international network of experts (researchers and practitioners) to advance our knowledge on topics related to home gardens, resilience, food security, emergencies and interventions. In facilitating research exchange and building capacity, the HG4RR network aims to study how informal small-scale home gardening acts as a coping strategy tool to strengthen the food security and resilience of vulnerable households living under extreme uncertainty and susceptible to negative shocks. In addition, we aim to better understand the effects home gardens might have beyond material outcomes (access to food), such as on improved livelihoods or women’s empowerment.

The research stays can last up to two months, and you do not need to have published to apply for funding. The deadline is 15 January 2020.

Relatively little is known about how households struggling to survive protracted violence and displacement get by economically, what shapes their (agricultural) livelihoods and what determines their food security. This is true both of socio-economic determinants and of the natural science of smallholder agriculture in conflict and fragile settings. Standard agricultural surveys in conflict-affected countries only […]
