Farming for Climate Justice is a Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR, based at Coventry University) collaboration with the Bio-Economy Chair at the University of Cape Town that emphasises the co-generation of socially inclusive research capable of transforming thinking and research practice for just food and farming systems. Funded by the British Council (Researcher Links Climate Challenge), the project will co-generate outputs for COP26 under the themes of adaptation and resilience, nature-based farming solutions, and agroecology financing.
The project team is inviting early career researchers (ECRs) from the UK and South Africa – from academia and civil society networks – to join us in a series of workshops and networking opportunities on intersecting topics. ECRs will be mentored to develop interdisciplinary research teams and collaborative action research proposals. Successful teams will win Challenge Prize funding to facilitate the co-production of knowledge with small-scale producers and other food system actors mobilising around, and exposed to ratcheting climate and biodiversity crises.
Applications to participate close on 11th April 2021. If you’re an ECR from the UK or South Africa, and would like to find out more please visit the website at Farming for Climate Justice.
