The office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Department of Commerce has announced the funding call “Climate Program Office (CPO) Adaptation Sciences: Interdisciplinary research, engagement, and capacity building to advance adaptation and resilience in islands of the Caribbean and the Pacific”.
The program seeks proposals for interdisciplinary adaptation research activities to identify and better understand evolving climate risks, vulnerabilities, and adaptive capacity, and to foster the integration of this knowledge into adaptation and resilience planning for islands in the Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
The aim is to support interdisciplinary and participatory research activities that address island-identified resilience needs, with an emphasis on projects that result in: (1) contextually relevant and usable information about climate impacts, vulnerabilities and solutions; (2) the evaluation, identification and strengthening of the adaptive capacities of institutions, communities, sectors and islands; (3) and/or the integration of climate information in adaptation planning, action and long-term resilience strategies.
Please note that the closing date for applications is January 31, 2023.
