Regional research

A key pillar of APN's science agenda

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. Under this pillar, APN supports collaborative research that contributes to the evolving science-policy arena, including the UNFCCC Paris Agreement, IPCC, IPBES, post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the UN Decade of Ocean Science as well as ongoing and new global change and sustainability research programmes.

Examples of CRRP activities fall under the following categories:

  1. Collaborative research on global change and sustainability that, particularly, addresses gaps, analysis, synthesis and assessment.
  2. Collaborative research that develops pathways and mechanisms to achieve progress towards global change and sustainable development and develop adaptation strategies.
  3. Collaborative place-based integrative research particularly from developing countries.
  4. Collaborative research that is co-designed with stakeholders (non-academic) and has actionable outcomes.
