Call for Applications:
Transdisciplinary Research for
Pathways to Sustainability
Future Earth and the Belmont Forum are pleased to announce the launch of the joint Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on the theme of Pathways to Sustainability. The call launches on 23 July 2020 with a closing date 31 October 2020.
To help provide a science base for achieving sustainability goals, the Belmont Forum and partners are supporting 1-2 years of collaborative research networking that focuses on integrated qualitative and quantitative approaches to develop Earth-system-based transformation pathways for sustainable development. The initiative invites its participants to consider all important interactions among the sustainable development goals, and address cross-cutting issues among at a minimum three or more explicitly identified Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Projects are free to prioritize the interactions to be explored, based on their own local, national, regional, or global context as long as they address the Belmont Challenge providing knowledge for understanding, mitigating, and adapting to global environmental change. Participants are required to use a transdisciplinary approach to engage society at large. This approach will ensure ownership of science outcomes as well as relevance to both policy-makers and decision-makers. Additionally, this approach should lead to social acceptance and empowerment.
