Belmont Forum awards funding for Resilience in a Rapidly Changing Arctic
The Belmont Forum is pleased to announce the awardees of a second Collaborative Research Action focused on Arctic regions.
The call aims at bringing together researchers and other expertise across the globe to develop proposals from integrated teams of scientists and stakeholders to address key areas of arctic resilience understanding and action. This collaboration of academic and non-academic knowledge systems constitutes a transdisciplinary approach that will advance not only understanding of the fundamentals of arctic resilience but also spur action, inform decision-making, and translate into solutions for resilience. The consortia address at least two of seven interconnected elements of resilience as described in the Arctic Resilience Report of the Arctic Council: natural, social, financial, cultural and human capitals; infrastructure; and knowledge.
Following an international call, funding organizations from 10 countries have committed resources for this call. Canada, Denmark, France, Japan, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden,andUSA have agreed to award 8 international consortia of researchers and stakeholders who will conduct collaborative projects of 3 to 4 years duration.
