Climate, Food and Farming Research Network Call for Proposals

November 18th, 2010

The Climate, Food and Farming research network (CLIFF) is a newly established initiative by the CGIAR Challenge Programme for Climate, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the Department of Agriculture and Ecology at the University of Copenhagen.

The aim of the network is to bring together PhD students and established researchers working on climate change mitigation and related adaptation activities in small-scale farming and food systems in developing countries. Click here to read more about the network. One of the main objectives of the network is to build research capacity by supporting PhD research within the networks’ themes. CLIFF’s first call for research proposals has just been announced. The call is for research looking at the GHG abatement potential of various agricultural practices and technologies and their synergies with adaptation.

Deadline for applications is 6 December 2010. The full call can be viewed here.
