Climate, Environment and Health (CEH) Improving understanding of Climate, Environment and Health pathways to protect and promote health

The Belmont Forum in collaboration with Future Earth, announces a new collaborative research action for transdisciplinary research which will improve understanding of the pathways between climate, environment and health to protect and promote human health and well-being in the face of climate challenges.

Multilateral, inter- and transdisciplinary research projects will investigate where significant uncertainties exist that are barriers to action; address complex climate, ecosystem and health pathways to determine processes underlying causal links; and foster the use of scientific information and climate-related decision support tools to better inform planning and enhance resilience.

Disaster Risk, Reduction and Resilience (DR3)

The Belmont Forum welcomes transdisciplinary proposals to its Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (DR3). For this call, we define disasters as extreme environmental events that negatively impact coupled human-natural systems, including but not limited to impacts on economic, health, infrastructure, and social subsystems. Extreme environmental events may be generated by natural forces, including climate change, and/or anthropogenic causes.

Resilience in Rapidly Changing Arctic Systems (CRA Arctic II)

This joint Belmont Forum CRA calls for co-developed and co-implemented proposals from integrated teams of natural and social scientists, and stakeholders to address key areas of arctic resilience understanding and action. This collaboration of academic and non-academic knowledge systems constitutes a transdisciplinary approach that will advance not only understanding of the fundamentals of arctic resilience but also spur action, inform decision-making, and translate into solutions for resilience. The term "stakeholder" is used here in its broadest possible sense, allowing for co-development of projects with partners from, but not limited to, civil society, government, industry, NGOs, and Indigenous organizations.
