Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Actions (CRAs): Climate, Environment and Health II
Call for proposals
The Belmont Forum has launched a call for proposals addressing the climate, environment and health nexus. The deadline for pre-proposals is July 15, 2023.
The Belmont Forum is an international partnership of funding agencies, international science councils and regional consortia that mobilises funding for environmental change research. It is committed to the advancement of transdisciplinary science. Scientist and stakeholder support is made possible through Collaborative Research Actions (CRAs), which are the Forum equivalent of a call for proposals.
The Belmont Forum has designed the current CRA "Climate, Environment and Health II" to strengthen and expand the current scientific understanding of links between climate variability, change, environment, and health impacts. The focus will be to address research priorities in LLMICs and underrepresented groups through the participation of indigenous peoples, local communities, and civil society (including NGOs) to implement sustainable platforms and promote capacity development between the global North and South.
Theme 1 – Decision-science of environmental behavior and implementation
Theme 2 – Food, Environment, and Biological Security
Theme 3 – Climate Risks to Ecosystems & Populations
