Applications are open for proposals on how to manage and facilitate a scoping process for a potential UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) joint research programme on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) for equitable climate resilience, using co-creation.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to 28 November 2022 and the programme will begin in December 2022.


The ARA is looking for an organisation to manage the design and delivery of a co-creation process that brings in relevant, local knowledge and voices to inform the strategic and scientific direction of a possible action-oriented research funding programme.


It is expected that the supplier will engage with the ARA Secretariat and UKRI to refine and realise a co-creation process to feed into the NbS programme scoping. Once the process is agreed, the supplier is expected to design, prepare and deliver the individual online workshops, including facilitation.

Deliverables and Outputs

  • A co-creation plan for identifying the challenges, opportunities and research questions that can be used to influence the scope of a potential NbS programme.
  • Design of workshops programme, including participatory methodologies.
  • Preparation of workshop materials for facilitators and participants.
  • Facilitation of workshops.
  • Contribute towards the synthesis that draws knowledge from one workshop to the next.
  • A report outlining the outcomes of the workshops that can be used to inform the scope of a new NbS programme.

More details on the application and eligibility requirements and other information can be found in the Terms of Reference.

Applications must be submitted to no later than 24 November 2022.
