BAOBAB 2024 Request for Proposals

The focus of this call is supporting teams of researchers, policymakers, and/or practitioners to use synthesis research approaches to better understand climate impacts, enhance climate action, and reduce risks.  

ASCEND will support up to 6 teams. Each team will be funded to convene multiple times at ASCEND facilities that support transdisciplinary team science at the University of Cape Town over 2 years. Teams can have up to 15 participants from across Africa and globally. A full-time postdoctoral research fellow is also funded for each team.

It is expected that synthesis research will include data and knowledge on Africa, but this may also involve synthesis of data and knowledge beyond Africa with relevance for the continent.
