Priority Research Areas

With the imminent release of the National Adaptation Research Plan (NARP) and call for Expression of Interest funding proposals, the NCCARF-Terrestrial Biodiversity Network is trying to facilitate research collaboration on the Priority Research Areas outlined in the NARP.

It is hoped that with this information it will be easier to submit nationally collaborative research proposals that address Priority Research Areas for Terrestrial Biodiversity.  There will be some emphasis on research consortia in the assessment of project proposals. If you have any further questions about this process please feel free to contact me.
