You are cordially invited to the Belmont Forum Climate, Environment and Health (CEH) Collaborative Research Action (CRA) Scoping Meeting. This scoping meeting is designed to bring together scientists and practitioners at the intersection of climate, environment and health in order to:
- 1) Identify scientific and institutional barriers for action;
- 2) Create greater communication across sectors and communities;
- 3) Identify and align research and funding priorities;
This will help shape the content and funding capacity of the CEH2 call for proposals anticipated in 2022. Tony Capon will kick off a robust discussion on climate, environment, and health challenges of the region.
