Since 2009, the Belmont Forum, whose members include funding organisations, research councils and regional consortia, has been funding calls for proposals, also known as Collaborative Research Actions (CRAs), to promote international transdisciplinary research in the context of global environmental change. 

As a full member of the Belmont Forum, the SNSF is participating in the Climate, Environment, and Health II CRA (CEHII), which, as its name suggests, is concerned with the connections between climate, environment and health. This CRA has multiple objectives: to deepen understanding of the complex connections between climate variability and the effects on the environment associated with climate change, to develop prevention systems, to create climate/health databases and forecasts, to support long-term policy-making and cooperation, to include marginalised but disproportionately affected populations, and to develop and co-produce indigenous knowledge. The topics covered by the CRA are:

  • Topic 1: Decision-science of environmental behaviour and implementation
  • Topic 2: Food, environment and biological security
  • Topic 3: Climate risks to ecosystems and populations


Each project must include at least three scientists eligible to receive funding from three funding organisations from at least three different countries participating in the programme.
