Biodiversity Futures: Projecting Changes in Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services for Decision-Making


The Belmont Forum call for proposals on biodiversity scenarios is now open. The objective is to stimulate the formation of international networks of scientists and the advancement of the inter- and trans-disciplinary methodologies of scenario-building needed to enhance usefulness of biodiversity scenarios in decision-making.

Proposals for one to two-year networking projects can be submitted on the Belmont Forum’s submission portal between May 2, 2014 and July 2, 2014.

The Belmont Forum plans opening a second call in 2017, on the same topic, for international collaborative research projects, possibly in partnership with other funding bodies such as the European network BiodivERsA.
