ASRT Green Fund: Climate Change Adaptation and Nature Conservation

Although climate change is a global challenge, adaptation to its negative impacts varies from place to place, from developed to developing countries, and from North to South, depending on the geographical position, type, and severity of negative environmental impacts and economic status of the country. Reports of the World Bank indicated clearly that climate change is a challenge for sustainable development and increases the costs of sustainable development in developing countries. Accordingly, the developing countries need huge efforts and funds to develop new costly infrastructures that are resilient to climate change. This is necessary to achieve efficient use of available water resources, to cope with sea-level rise and salinization of groundwater and soil, to develop precision and smart agriculture systems for maximum crops per drop, and to support social and institutional adaptation through education, awareness, new policies, and legislations.

Accordingly, Egyptian researchers and experts, at home and/or abroad, are invited to submit short-term, innovative, applicable, and economically feasible RDI proposals to support the aforementioned ASRT efforts aiming at climate change adaptation and nature conservation. It might be worth reaffirming that submitting the same proposal to different national or international funding organizations is not allowed and will be treated as miss conduct (unethical behavior). In this regard, all relevant penalties of scientific miss conduct will be applied.

ASRT is pleased to announce a fast-track competitive call for RDI proposals addressing the following thematic areas:

Ecofriendly Sustainable Development of Rural Areas and coastal regions.
Support of National Breeding Programs (NBP) aiming at developing strategic crops tolerant to salinity, drought, high temperature and diseases.
Saline agriculture and future Crops.
Conservation of natural heritage and archeological areas.
Green innovation to mitigate the impact of climate change.
Conservation of natural genetic resources (Gene Banks, Botanical Gardens, Encyclopedia, National Biodiversity Records, etc.).
Economic, strategic and fore sighting studies addressing climate change challenges.
Using earth observation and modeling for real time monitoring, predict and better understand the impacts of climate change.
Red Sea Coral Reef bleaching problem and rehabilitation.
Solid and E- waste recycling.
Ecofriendly textiles.
Green infrastructure to promote urban resilience to climate changes.
Smart agriculture and emerging technologies aiming at more crops per drop.
Towards feasible, applicable and sustainable urban landscaping industry based on wild plants.
