Call for research proposals

Case Studies on the Intersectional Impacts of Air Pollution on the World of Work of Vulnerable Groups including Women and Youth in Southeast Asia

News | 14 July 2021
The Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), in collaboration with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the International Labour Organization (ILO), call for proposals for in-country research partners to conduct case studies in Cambodia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Thailand and Viet Nam on the intersectional impacts of air pollution on the world of work of vulnerable groups including women and youth.

This work links to the UN Climate Action for Jobs Initiative (CA4JI) by contributing gender-responsive research on the impact of air pollution on labour market outcomes. This will help improve the knowledge base and enable policy makers in South-East Asia to better understand the impacts associated with their Just Transition policy plans. The CA4JI aims to support countries in achieving a Just Transition to carbon-neutral economies by providing knowledge and technical advice, design and implementation support, and financial assistance.

Total funds available are up to 400,000 Swedish Krona (SEK) per country.

Timeline: All submissions and any questions are to be sent by email to Ms Jaee Nikam,, by the deadline: 13 August 2021.
