Americas Regional Info Day

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the Belmont Forum invite you to the

AMERICAS REGIONAL INFO DAY

Monday, November 6, 2017
From 8am to 5pm

The Americas Regional Info Day welcomes experts and stakeholders, funding and resource organizations, coordination and governance bodies, and public, private and non-profit institutions who are engaged in activities relevant to the Belmont Forum Challenge, to provide knowledge for understanding, mitigating, and adapting to global environment change.

The discussion will identify priorities at the science-society-policy nexus that are of mutual interest in the Americas region, overcome challenges and build opportunities for multi-national collaboration, and strengthen linkages to global frameworks to leverage extramural funding for Americas regional priorities. 

The Belmont Forum is an international partnership that mobilizes funding of environmental change research and accelerates its delivery to remove critical barriers to sustainability. Members are most of the main funding agencies and organizations in the world, including FAPESP.

Forum actions are guided by the Belmont Challenge, a vision document that encourages: international transdisciplinary research providing knowledge for understanding, mitigating and adapting to global environmental change.
