2023 International Joint Initiative for Research in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Competition

The call will support research that is both interdisciplinary (integrating information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge) and trans-sectoral (involving the academic, research, economic [businesses], societal [governmental and nongovernmental organizations] and community sectors, as appropriate) on participatory contextually and culturally appropriate mitigation and adaptation responses to at least two of the eight representative key risks of climate change, noted above. Projects must focus on responding to the needs of those most impacted by the effects of climate change, such as communities in low- and middle-income countries or Indigenous territories, or groups that are vulnerable due to their geographic, social and/or economic circumstances. All projects are required to partner with participating community or communities in the co-creation, implementation and ownership of the research and outcomes, and to develop approaches related to policy implementation and knowledge mobilization.
