As part of Azim Premji University’s efforts to strengthen and elevate action on climate change, the University is are launching a Research Funding Programme in this area. This is designed to promote increased understanding, and to explore possible action and responses on the climate crisis in India.
We invite high quality proposals that examine significant questions of public concern in the following three areas:
- Climate change education and outreach
- Climate change policy and action
- Climate change adaptation in various sectors of development practice
While the University is open to any broad consideration within the area, the research should be empirically grounded, and be able to directly inform and engage with education and outreach, policy or practice. We are especially seeking proposals in emerging areas of major relevance such as climate change communication, climate change and health, and climate change in cities, but are open to proposals engaging with climate change in all its diverse aspects.
Successful projects must have a strong component of action in some form: projects that are solely research-focused will not be considered in this call. Collaborative research applications are encouraged.
The duration of projects is for 1 year, and size of the research fund is a maximum of Rs. 20 lakhs per proposal.
