Belmont Forum - FORESTS 2024: Tropical Forests - Global Implications and Pressing Actions

The Belmont Forum, an international partnership of research funding organizations of which ANR is a member, is launching a call for projects recognizing the pressing challenges and opportunities to meet the targets under the Sustainable Development Goals and the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework in tropical forests worldwide. This Collaborative Research Action (CRA) aims at coordinating actions and projects with a transdisciplinary approach to develop innovative solutions to the challenges faced in tropical forest regions, Amazonia being the largest and most populated. Acknowledging the differences in governance, cultural diversity, and territorial configuration, this CRA spans tropical forests worldwide that face similar challenges.

Proposals should encompass elements from at least two of the three areas below:

  • 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
