Background on the APN Call for Proposals

To fulfill its mission, APN promotes understanding of global environmental change through collaborative regional research and scientific capacity building, with a specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region. This has been achieved since 1996 by selecting competitive activities within research, capacity building, and science-policy interactions, in areas of  air, land, coasts and oceans; biodiversity and ecosystemsclimate; food, water and energy; human dimensions; and risk reduction and resilience.

This year, APN is inviting proposals in it’s two core programmes, for funding from October 2024: the Collaborative Regional Research Programme (CRRP) and the Scientific Capacity Development Programme (CAPaBLE). A limited amount of financial support is available for proposal activities that fall within its area of interest.

With a growing interest in APN proposal submissions, evidenced by our record total of 145 proposal submissions in the 2022 Call for Proposals, the APN Scientific Affairs team is looking forward to sharing detailed insight into our annual Call for Proposals launch procedure and guidance for successful proposal submissions.
