BelmontForum2Grants for international research on environmental change at global and regional levels


Principal Office: International

 

The Belmont Forum represents an international group of agencies and organizations that fund research on global environmental change. The Belmont Forum operates in support of IGFA, the International Group of Funding Agencies for Global Change Research.

The Belmont Forum aims to deliver knowledge to avoid and adapt to detrimental environmental change, including extreme hazardous events. Its focal areas include research related to:

  • Coastal vulnerability;
  • Freshwater security;
  • Ecosystem services;
  • Carbon budgets; and
  • Most vulnerable societies.

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Collaborative Research Actions. The Belmont Forum aims to help deliver international collaboration through Collaborative Research Actions (CRAs). The CRAs address the Belmont research priorities; add value to the work of the individual Belmont members; and bring together new partnerships of natural scientists, social scientists, and users.

Many CRAs are supported through calls for proposals. Proposals are submitted by international consortia, consisting of partners from at least three Belmont countries.

Each Belmont member funds researchers in its own country. Researchers from countries not participating in a call for proposals may participate in a research project at their own expense.
