Call for pre-proposals: Food-water-energy nexus in African cities

African scientists can apply by 15 March to participate in a Collaborative Research Action from the Belmont Forum called the Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI): Food-Water-Energy Nexus.

Reposted from Future Earth.

The Belmont Forum and START have announced that they are seeking pre-proposals for a new research opportunity in Africa focusing on sustainable cities and food, water and energy (FWE) resources. The call is part of the Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI): Food-Water-Energy Nexus Collaborative Research Action, which seeks to 'bring together the fragmented research and expertise across the globe to find innovative new solutions to the Food-Water-Energy Nexus challenge'. The Collaborative Research Action is a joint effort of the Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe.

The call for pre-proposals is open to African nationals working at institutions based in Africa. The deadline for submissions is 15 March 2017.

For more information about this research call or to submit a pre-proposal, see the application announcement here

From the initial SUGI: Food-Water-Energy Nexus call:

Belmont Forum and JPI Urban Europe have partnered to ensure participants across physical, natural, social sciences and arts and humanities as well as policy and decision-makers and stakeholders around the world.

The call topics will enable the participants to develop projects that aim to find solutions to the Food-Water-Energy nexus for a sustainable urbanisation. The goal is to rapidly evolve the knowledge base, advance indicators and assessment tools that are needed for a comprehensive understanding of the FWE nexus.

For questions, contact Jon Padgham or Sarah Schweizer.
