Climate Change Action
In our effort to strengthen and elevate action on climate change, the funding in this area is designed
to promote increased understanding of the climate crisis in India and to explore possible
action and responses to it. We invite high-quality proposals that examine significant
questions of public concern in the following areas:
Climate change education and outreach
Climate change policy and action
Climate change adaptation and mitigation
While we are open to any broad consideration within the area of climate action,
proposals that focus on other aspects of sustainability, such as pollution, waste
and ecology without establishing a strong link to climate change will not be considered.
Proposals should be empirically grounded and be able to directly inform and engage with
education and outreach, policy or practice. Successful projects must have a strong
component of action in some form; projects that are solely research-focused will not be
considered in this call. Collaborative research applications are encouraged.
Research Funding budget: INR 5-10 lakhs
Duration of project: 1 year
