The Tropical Forests: Global Implications and Pressing Actions funding call from the Belmont Forum supports research consortia of researchers taking on a transdisciplinary approach to develop innovative solutions to the challenges faced in tropical forest regions, This call for proposals recognises the growing threats to those ecosystems and their inhabitants, such as climate change, deforestation, unregulated agroindustry and land conversion, illegal activities, pollution, and environmental/climate injustices. In the global tropical forest regions such as the Amazon, Central America, Asia, and Africa, the well-being and survival of indigenous peoples and local communities depend on the local ecosystem under pressure. The challenges tropical forest regions face vary depending on governance, local ecology, cultural diversity, and territorial configuration.

Proposals should cover at least two of the following three areas:

  • AREA 1: Reduce deforestation, and promote sustainable development and locally-led economies
  • AREA 2: Ecosystem Function, Connectivity, and Climate Change Science
  • AREA 3: Environmental Justice and Governance

The consortium must include researchers from the social sciences, natural sciences, and include societal partners. Each proposal must have research groups in at least 3 different countries, including countries in the Americas, Brazil, USA, Japan, Switzerland, Norway, France and China. The grant provides funding for 3 years. Amount of funding is dependent on each funder of this funding call.

Pre-posals are due November 12, 2024. Full applications are due May 30, 2025.
