Climate, Food and Farming Research Network Call for Proposals, 2014

Last modified September 24, 2014 12:04

Grants to support scientific training of PhD students from developing countries

The Climate Food and Farming (CLIFF) Research Network invite applications from students from developing countries1, currently enrolled in PhD programs for short-term (3-4 month) scientific training and research stays at CGIAR research centers. Applicants should have a background in agriculture and climate change research and an interest in mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. We especially seek students with experience with crop-livestock systems. Selected students will be sponsored for shortterm (3-4 month) scientific training and research stays at CGIAR centers in their home regions, or affiliated research institutions2. During their tenure at the host institutions, students will learn approaches used in the Standard Assessment of Mitigation Potential and Livelihoods in Smallholder Systems (SAMPLES) research program to evaluate options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from smallholder systems and the changes in productivity and livelihood indicators associated with alternative practices.
