A 4-year global collaboration project

The UKRI Collective Fund award 'Gender Responsive Resilience and Intersectionality in Policy and Practice (GRRIPP) - Networking Plus Partnering for Resilience' is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund.

It is a 4-year global collaboration and knowledge-exchange project, implemented by a collective of universities. It aims to bring together theory, policy and practice to promote a gender-responsive approach to disaster management and development. 




Almost £2 million will be dedicated to support projects in Africa, Latin America and Caribbean, and South Asia, responding to the needs and priorities identified in each region. With this, we aim to make knowledge produced in the Global ‘South’ more visible and support diverse initiatives that can have a positive impact on local communities.


The needs of each region and the scope of funded projects is defined through a collaborative process with the Regional Networks and orientated by a gender and intersectional lens. The regional projects aim to provide the opportunity to build capacity, connect different projects together, support early career researchers and practitioners, and give visibility to those who do not usually benefit from access to funding. 

Implementation approach

GRRIPP is not only about innovative research and development initiatives, it also proposes to develop innovative methods and ways of working; we are committed to lead the project in a feminist way and are guided by a decolonial approach, by which we mean a critical reassessment of power relationships between and within countries, communities and social relations more generally. Our structure of management is flat and horizontal, and all the partners follow a code of conduct that ensures a diverse, fair and safe working environment. 

In this regard, GRRIPP aims to foster an international collaboration that brings to the forefront initiatives from the Global ‘South’. With this change of focus and methods, we will contribute to renew theory and implement better policies and practices in the fields of gender-responsive disaster risk reduction, climate change action and development.
