PEER is seeking research projects that support the goals and objectives of USAID/Indonesia as outlined in the Mission’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS; Principal investigators have the opportunity to apply for PEER funds if their research supports one of the following three priority areas for USAID/Indonesia:
  • Education: USAID/ Indonesia is interested in supporting research into methodologies of STEM education at both secondary and university levels. Special interest in strengthening teaching methods and curricula in statistics, the scientific method, research methods, generation of knowledge, methods of inquiry, and evidence-based decision making. Education proposals that involve the application of the scientific method to non-research contexts and evidence-based decision making are also encouraged.
  • Biodiversity conservation: USAID/Indonesia is interested in supporting policy-relevant research that seeks to better understand causes and consequences of the loss of biodiversity in both marine and terrestrial environments, including understanding the root causes of deforestation, species decline, overfishing, and wildlife trafficking in Indonesia. Biodiversity proposals that complement USAID’s flagship forestry and marine projects, Lestari ( and Sustainable Ecosystems Advanced Project (SEA), will be prioritized.
  • Wildlife trafficking policy: USAID/Indonesia is interested in supporting research that could produce evidence to better inform wildlife trafficking policy. Examples include research which leads to: a better understanding of the viability of wild populations of the most trafficked species; technology development to detect and combat trafficking; ecosystem services linked to trafficked species; and the economics or sociology of wildlife trafficking.
