Adapting Rural Living and Land Use to Environmental Change: Call for Proposals

The Relu Programme, with additional funding from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), invites applications under a fourth call on the theme of “Adapting rural living and land use to environmental change”. The call has two objectives. The first objective is to build networks and capacity for creative knowledge exchange and learning between researchers and policy makers, businesses, practitioners, local communities and the wider public, with a view to strengthening adaptive capacities, primarily within the UK. The second objective is to explore and promote novel approaches and partnerships for interdisciplinary research and analysis on living with environmental change in rural contexts.

The call specification document and further guidance are available at http://www.esrc.ac.uk/ESRCInfoCentre/opportunities/current_funding_opportunities/RELU.aspx
