Future Earth has committed to supporting the community building of the Belmont Forum Climate, Environment and Health CRA. The call is indented for multilateral, inter- and transdisciplinary proposals focusing on Climate, Environment and Health with the aim of improving the understanding of climate, environment and health pathways to protect and promote human health and well-being in the face of climate challenges. This Future Earth Webinar is intended to help relevant stakeholders find each other across communities and boundaries.

The Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Climate, Environment and Health was previously announced on the Future Earth website and serves for multilateral, inter- and transdisciplinary research projects that will investigate where significant uncertainties exist that are barriers to action; address complex climate, ecosystem and health pathways to determine processes underlying causal links; and foster the use of scientific information and climate-related decision support tools to better inform planning and enhance resilience.

During the Webinar, we will provide a brief overview of the call statement, EoI and full proposal guidance, participating agencies/organizations, evaluations, and other information. Depending on the number of participants we hope to give time for participants to introduce themselves and express their interests to join and reach out to others during the Webinar.
