UK Climate Resilience Programme – Two topics – Governing Adaptation and Enhanced Climate Change Risk Assessment Capability

Return to opportunities

Summary

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is inviting proposals to their second funding opportunity through the UK Climate Resilience programme, funded through the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF). The programme aims to draw together fragmented climate research and expertise to deliver robust, multi- and inter-disciplinary research into climate risks and adaptation solutions.

In this second UKRI funding opportunity, up to £3.5 million is available across two topics, up to 28 months in duration.

Topic A:  Enhanced Climate Change Risk Assessment capability

This topic aims to produce improved UK spatial modelling of climate-related risks, characterisation of interdependent risks and representation of adaptation strategies in integrated assessment models of impact and adaptation.

Up to one interdisciplinary proposal will be funded in this topic area up to the value of £2m (at 80% FEC) for up to 28 months in duration. Applications are anticipated to include researchers across the natural, physical, engineering, health, arts and humanities and social sciences.

Topic B: Governing Adaptation

This topic aims to enhance our understanding of the social, institutional and cultural contexts, including behaviour, capacity and governance of individuals, organisations and policy, and the interactions between them, in delivering adaptation.

This topic will be delivered through a maximum of two projects, each up to the value of £750,000 (at 80% FEC) and up to 28 months in duration.

Town hall meeting

The UK Climate Resilience programme will be holding an open town hall meeting on 3 October 2019 in London (venue tbc) to further communicate the remit and objectives of the programme and the specific requirements of this call, and bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines with interests in climate impacts and resilience in the UK. Attendance to the meeting is not mandatory for applicants.
