**Some programs are limited. Please read solicitations carefully and consult your Office of Research for specifics, such as limited applications through your university and internal application deadlines.**

This Research Call is being offered by the Belmont Forum, a group of funding agencies from around the world that support transdisciplinary, globally-representative research groups and coproduction/participatory methods to address various Global Environmental Change topics. Topics are addressed through a “Collaborative Research Action” (CRA) and the Migration / Mobility & Global Change CRA is the next research call that will launch. This call is co-branded with Future Earth and managed by the National Research Foundation as the Thematic Programme Office. A partnership with the Global Development Network will offer early opportunities for networking and proposal strengthening before the submission deadline, with a chance for in-depth learning on the goals of the Call, how to meet the Call requirements, what will make Consortia successful, opportunities to identify collaborators and participate in existing Consortia. Awarded projects receive opportunities to participate in coordinated activities throughout the award lifecycle to enhance networks, stakeholder engagement, transdisciplinary, and dissemination of findings.

This announcement is intended to inform interested individuals and groups of the upcoming research funding opportunity focused on integrated systems approaches to accurately characterize migration and mobility and its intersection with Global Change, both closely related and intersecting phenomena. This Announcement outlines the key areas of interest for this Call, the timeline, and presents an opportunity for all to participate in a series of Workshops and Networking activities to prepare strong proposals and Consortia to submit.

Theme and Key Areas:
Successful proposals should focus on illuminating the determinants of migration – why people move, do not move, from and to where and when, and on what time scale, in relation to Global Change processes like environmental and climate change, demographic changes, consumption patterns, energy use, and land-use. Exploration of dependencies, linkages, and/or impacts between Global Change, migration and mobility, human constructs, social science, and humanities approaches, and other studies are encouraged. Within this theme, there are three areas to consider including (1) data and methodology, (2) policy, and (3) human-centric approaches that integrate human perspectives and needs in all steps and aspects of a project and beyond.

Expression of Interest:
To find out more information about the workshops and networking events, fill out the Expression of Interest form on their website. Preferential access to the workshops and networking opportunities will be given to those that fill you the Expression of Interest form by February 1, 2022.

Application Deadline: Expressions of Interest due February 1, 2022; full call for proposals will close during the month of July 2022.
