CitiesIPCC Legacy Research Grant Program

June 15, 2019

The City of Edmonton, with support from Alberta Ecotrust, are partnering to deliver research grants to help advance knowledge about how Edmonton can become an energy sustainable and climate resilient city.

Research projects must align with the City of Edmonton’s Energy Transition Strategy and the Climate Resilient Edmonton – Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan. Research projects should also align with the Global Research and Action Agenda on Cities and Climate Change Science which includes the topics of Urban Planning and Design, Built and Blue / Green Infrastructure, Sustainable Consumption and Production, Finance, Uncertainty, and Informality.

Proposals must align with one or more of these three areas of focus:

  • Energy Transition;
  • Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience; and/or
  • Citizen Science (to support Energy Transition and Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience).
