"Domains" research funding round: Now open!

banner

Be a part of the Deep South Challenge research rōpū, and help enable Aotearoa New Zealand to prepare for our changing climate.

We are now seeking funding proposals for our Domains Research. We’re looking to fund research that will enable climate-sensitive sectors - hapū and iwi, business, and local and central government - to adapt to climate change.

Funding proposals are due 8 November 2019 with an expected start date of 1 April 2020.

We invite proposals to:

  • the Māori domain
  • the three domains of Communities, Infrastructure and the National Economy.

 

MĀORI DOMAIN

We are looking for research projects that will contribute substantive and transformative outcomes for Māori and for wider Aotearoa New Zealand. These must fit within the Challenge’s mission, to enable New Zealanders to anticipate adapt, manage risk, and thrive in a changing climate.

Please find all the documentation you need to submit a research proposal at this section of our website.

 

COMMUNITIES, INFRASTRUCTURE, NATIONAL ECONOMY DOMAINS

We are calling for research that focuses on: making and improving projections of New Zealand’s future climate; the impacts and implications of climate change for Aotearoa New Zealand; and enabling adaptation to climate change.

Research proposals should address the research themes of multiple impacts, effective adaptation, water and land and the economy.

Please find all the documentation you need to submit a research proposal at this section of our website.
 

We look forward with anticipation to your innovative, high-impact and end user-relevant research proposals.
