Call for EOIs: Research Grant Funding on Climate Change in Papua New Guinea

The grants provide funding for climate change research grants aimed at advancing the knowledge of the health and environmental consequences of climate change. This support is primarily focused on several critical dimensions of how climate change influences agriculture, Sustainable Development, water quality, environment, human health and infrastructure.

Ultimately, this knowledge informs strategies and policies to address climate-related challenges and safeguard the health and resilience of communities.

  • The student awards are offered to Papua New Guineans and permanent residents of PNG pursuing Master’s studies at a university in PNG and to researchers, research and higher learning institutes in the PNG community.

  • The open category is for researchers and professionals, academic and higher learning institutions, government organizations in PNG engaged in climate change.
