This opportunity supports interdisciplinary and trans-sectoral teams working on at least two of the eight identified risks associated with climate change. Projects must focus on responding to the needs of those most impacted by the effects of climate change, such as communities in low- and middle-income countries or Indigenous territories, or groups that are vulnerable due to their geographic, social and/or economic circumstances.

The identified risk categorizations include: risks to low-lying coastal socio-ecological systems; risks to terrestrial and ocean ecosystems; risks associated with critical physical infrastructure, networks and services; risks to living standards; risks to human health; risks to food security; risks to water security; risks to peace and to human mobility.
