Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN): Inviting applications for ‘2019 Calls for Proposals under the CRRP and CAPaBLE Programmes’ to support for regional research and capacity development activities.

Funding brief: The APN invites proposals under the Collaborative Regional Research Programme (CRRP) and the Capacity Development Programme (CAPaBLE) for funding from September 2020. A limited amount of financial support is available for regional research and capacity development activities that fall within its areas of interest.

APN invites proposals under its Collaborative Regional Research Programme (CRRP) for funding from September 2020. A limited amount of financial support is available for regional research and capacity development activities that fall within its areas of interest.

Activities related to collaborative regional research programme that APN supports cover the following:
Collaborative research on global change and sustainaility that, particularly, addresses gaps, analysis, synthesis and assessment work.
Collaborative research that develops pathways and mechanisms to achieve sustainable development and develop adaptation strategies.
Collaborative research that contributes to the evolving science-policy arena, including IPCC, IPBES, post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, as well as ongoing and new global change and sustainability research programmes.

APN invites proposals under its Capacity Development Programme (CAPaBLE) for funding from September 2020. A limited amount of financial support is available for regional research and capacity development activities that fall within its areas of interest.

Activities related to the CAPaBLE programme cover the following:
Capacity development activities that promote the following approaches related to one or more the five thematic areas of APN:
Utilizing and strengthening existing capacity
Creating opportunities to use/instil capacity
Developing new capacity through innovative approaches
Awareness raising and dissemination activities for policy- and decision-making communities, civil society and/or the general public.
Science-policy interfacing in the context of the five thematic areas.
Capacity development partnership activity that contribute to the capacity development components of the evolving global change arena, including IPCC, IPBES, post-2015 Sustainable Development goals, and ongoing and new global change and sustainability research programmes.

High Priority Topics for Funding
APN invites trans- and interdisciplinary research and capacity development proposals that reflect the following themes:
Climate change and climate variability and their related impacts (climate projections/downscaling, extreme events, DRR, monsoon, etc.)
Ecosystem-based adaptation and disaster risk reduction
Smart agriculture (resource allocation, livestock, food, technology transfer, innovation, extension, etc.)
Transboundary issues (pollution, water quality, human health, fisheries and microplastics, invasive species, waste management, etc.)
Transition towards a sustainable future
Water, food and energy security
To help achieve 1 to 6, they encourage innovative data for evidence-based decision-making tools.

Topics discussed under the above themes included the following (not in priority order):
Improving the quality of climate change projections to address climate change impacts at national and subregional levels
Extreme events related to monsoon and climate change
Climate change and impacts on human health (physical and mental health)
Coastal erosion and increasing risk to infrastructure
Climate change adaptation due to increased flood, drought and wildfire events
Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in the context of international processes such as IPBES, IPCC, NOWPAP, AP-PLAT, etc.
Increasing the resilience of indigenous and local communities to climate-induced impacts
Addressing knowledge gaps on social vulnerability due to the impact of a changing climate and unsustainable use of biodiversity
Technology transfer for smart agriculture and food security
Policy-relevant research on the implementation of nationally determined contributions (NDCs)
Energy efficiency, GHG emissions reduction, facilitation of adoption of related mitigation policies
Impacts of microplastics; research on new materials to combat microplastics
Transboundary air pollution and its impacts on human health
Proposals that do not address any of the above themes will not be accepted under the 2019 Call for Proposals.
