Projektbidrag – Vetenskapsrådet och Forskningsrådet för miljö, areella näringar och samhällsbyggande (Formas)
Utlysning gäller projektbidrag inom utvecklingsforskning, med inriktningen ”Sustainability and resilience – Tackling consequences of climate and environmental changes” med relevans för minst utvecklade länder. Klimat- och miljöförändringar drabbar befolkningar i minst utvecklade länder hårt. Konsekvenserna är allvarliga när extrema väderförhållanden ändras och förlust av biodiversitet och andra hot mot samhällen, människor och ekosystem tilltar. Forskning om resiliens och hållbarhet som bidrar till att förstå dessa risker och effekter och hur de kan hanteras är därför av största vikt. I detta sammanhang är det också centralt att problemställningar och forskningsfrågor formuleras gemensamt med medverkande forskare i de aktuella länderna.
