Through the competitive Collaborative Regional Research Programme (CRRP), we promote regional research that has potential to improve our understanding of global change and its implications while contributing to a sound scientific basis for policymaking in areas affected by global change.
Examples of CRRP activities fall under the following categories:
- Collaborative research on global change and sustainability 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 place-based integrative research, particularly from developing countries.
- 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.
