Climate, Environment, and Health II (CEH II 2023)

CEH II 2023
Full Proposals

Invited Full Proposal Opens: 19 October 2023
Full Proposals Due:
29 February 2024 20:00 UTC

Belmont Forum's Latest Collaborative Research Action will address the nexus of Climate, Environment, and Health. The purpose of this call is to address an unmet need to promote, mobilize, and establish an inclusive, transdisciplinary funding scheme, through the preservation and celebration of diverse communities, research topics, ecosystems, and creative transformative solutions. One ambitious goal for this CRA will hopefully create a comprehensive culture shift through education, research, service, and advocacy to inspire a world where all animals and humans can thrive - through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science - and by adapting and protecting Earth's natural systems for generations to come.

Call themes:

  • Theme 1 - Decision-science of environmental behavior and implementation
  • Theme 2 - Food, Environment, and Biological Security
  • Theme 3 - Climate Risks to Ecosystems and Populations
