Call for Transnational Research Proposals on “Supporting biodiversity and ecosystem protection across land and sea”

Biodiversa+, the European Biodiversity Partnership, has announced a 2021-2022 joint Call for Transnational Research Proposals on “Supporting the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems across land and sea” is now open.

This call aims to support transnational research projects (3-years duration) addressing one or more of the three (non-exclusive) themes below:

  • THEME 1 – Knowledge for identifying priority conservation areas, establishing effective and resilient ecological networks, enhancing species-based protection and preserving genetic diversity
  • THEME 2 – Multiple benefits and costs of biodiversity and ecosystem protection: synergies and trade-offs
  • THEME 3 – Effective management and equitable governance to deliver bold conservation outcome

Projects combining aspects from several themes are encouraged. This call is focused on the protection of biodiversity in the wild. This does not, for example, include efforts for restoration of habitats and species, or ex-situ conservation.

The call covers all environments, i.e. terrestrial, freshwater and marine. It also covers research on biodiversity conservation in the Outermost Regions (ORs) and Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of the EU.

Important dates

  • Launch of the call: Friday 01 October 2021
  • Deadline for pre-proposals submission (mandatory): Tuesday 30 November 2021, 15:00 CET (local time in Brussels)
  • Deadline for full-proposals submission: Thursday 14 April 2022, 15:00 CEST (local time in Brussels)

Going beyond implemention with non-state and subnational climate action
Egypt is hosting this year’s UN Climate Change Conference in Sharm El Sheikh. The slogan of this year’s conference is ‘Together for Implementation’. However, by merely implementing existing pledges under the Paris Agreement, governments would certainly spell the death of the goal to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Looking back at the Toronto Conference
Amid the changing autumn leaves, scholars from across the world met up in Toronto for the Earth System Governance Conference 2022, which took place from the 20th to the 24th of October. The world continues to rapidly change, as different challenges and crises arise and are dealt with on different governance levels. The challenge for this research community is to create knowledge on how to ensure that throughout all these changes, the sustainability transition continues to advance in a just way.
