Children’s learning: effects of climate change and environmental degradation in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

The FCDO invites tenders to conduct a systematic review of the effects of climate change and environmental degradation on children’s learning in Low- and Middle-Income countries (LMICs).

It will also outline what is known about the nature and scale of these effects.

Educating girls is a top and long-standing development priority for the UK. In December 2022, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) published a position paper setting out the vision for addressing the climate, environment and biodiversity crises in and through education.

This review will inform UK approaches to address the impact of climate change and environmental degradation on learning.

To produce a robust systematic review, the FCDO seeks a research team that has:

  • experience undertaking research in the fields of climate and education in LMICs
  • an ability to review sectoral literature to identify evidence relevant to understanding the impact of climate and environmental degradation on education
  • skills in conducting rigorous evidence syntheses, including systematic reviews or rapid evidence assessments

Eligibility: Eligible parties include non-governmental organisations (NGOs), UK-based non-profit organisations, companies, educational institutions, individuals, and humanitarian relief organisations.

Funding information: Funding is valued at £10,001 to £100,000
