*The OML Center welcomes proposals for the 2016 Resilience Grants*

Now on its fourth year, the Oscar M. Lopez Center for Climate Change
Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management Foundation, Inc. (OML Center) is
pleased to announce its call for proposals for the 2016 Resilience Grants.

Science and technology have a critical role to play in enhancing the
resilience of the sectors of society whose aspirations to develop
sustainably are threatened by climate-related risks and disasters. With
this in mind, the Center encourages submissions that focus on science-based
innovations that will provide opportunities and adaptive alternatives to
managing the risks and threats of climate change and variabilities.

In an effort to respond to our country’s need for more localized and
impact-driven research, knowledge, and tools, the Center is looking for
proposals that fill three specific themes:

*Climate Risk and Resilience*

   - Projects that will support assessments of current and future risks and
   determine the most appropriate strategies for managing these risks
   - Measures that seek to strengthen climate resiliency of communities

*Climate Change Impacts on Sectors*

   - Projects that will look into climate change impacts on ecosystems and
   primary industries, society (values, attitudes, climate resilient culture),
   justice, policy, governance , health, and the private sector

*Advances in Climate Science*

   - Innovations in climate science that will spur new solutions and have
   practical application in the areas of climate dynamics and modelling,
   climate prediction/weather forecasting, GIS and remote sensing, and loss
   and damage, among others
   - Early-stage climate adaptation technologies that will be able to
   demonstrate practical application of climate science

The Center also recognizes that for science to create real impact,
innovations and knowledge must be widely understood, accepted, and used
effectively by those threatened by risks and disasters, so that they may
become catalysts or agents for sustainability themselves. To fill this gap
between climate science solutions and user communities, the Center is
limiting its acceptance to proposals that can demonstrate utilization/use
and impact of project outputs.

*The deadline for submission of Pre-Proposal Concept Note is 01 December
2016. The deadline for submission of Proposals is 15 January 2017.*
