Belmont Forum launches a call for research proposals to improve understanding among the climate, environment, and health pathways to protect and promote ecological, planetary, and human health in the face of climate challenges. Convergent research and/or transdisciplinary research projects will investigate issues that impede policy implementation; address complex climate, ecosystem, and health pathways to determine processes underlying causal links; capacity development and collaboration across relevant disciplines and institutions; and foster the use of international scientific databases with local knowledge to develop climate-related decision support tools to better inform planning, resilience, and adaptation to climate change.

This is an international, transdisciplinary call for proposals with the aims to:

  • foster global transdisciplinary teams of natural (including climate), medical, and social scientists, and stakeholders to co-produce world-leading research in collaboration with LLMIC communities;
  • develop an understanding of the complex linkages and pathways between climate variability and change-associated impacts on the environment, on exposure pathways for health, and on human behavior and well-being;
  • develop and/or integrate international or national geographical, health, and early-warning system databases that will adopt implementation science strategies with civil society partners (including NGOs) to train a workforce designed by and for the local community;
  • provide applicable information, knowledge, scientific evidence, and effective tools to support long-term policymaking, decision-making, capacity development, and collaboration across all timescales, regions, and disciplines to foster a collaborative community of practice for climate, environment, and health; and
  • include systems-level approaches at the intersection of climate, environment, and health to incorporate underrepresented communities of different socioeconomic, cultural, gender, and minorities into a comprehensive climate resilient health system, as defined by the WHO.

Application Deadline: July 15, 2023 (Preliminary Proposals);  January 15, 2024 (Full Proposals)
