Call for Proposals on Mountains As Sentinels of Change (deadline: 15.06.01) [fr]
Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action on “Mountains as Sentinels of Change” - This call aims at fostering research on climate, environmental and related societal change in mountain regions, considering both new measurements, recovery of existing data, and the development and use of integrated modelling strategies by adopting a strong trans- and inter-disciplinary approach.
Attention to the hydrological, ecological, societal and economic implications of the ongoing and expected environmental changes is an essential component in the proposed projects, as well as the design of adaptation measures in the face of climate and global change, regional development and sustainable development strategies for mountain regions.
Five main themes have been identified that characterize the “Mountains as sentinels of change” Collaborative Research Action (CRA) Call. The themes of the call are:
• Theme1. Drivers of change
The variety of natural and anthropogenic drivers that generate the observed and expected environmental changes in the mountains.
• Theme 2. Ecosystems and Biodiversity
• Theme 3. Water
• Theme 4. Hazards, Vulnerability and Risks
• Theme 5. Adaptation and Resilience
The funding will facilitate cooperation with consortia including members from at least 3 partners countries: France, Germany, Brasil, China, USA and UK.
