The 2022 Commonwealth Climate Resilience Challenge Grants are being offered by the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
The Grants are given to member institutions to assist climate resilience programs.
The funds, which are open to academic and professional staff, encourage collaborative work focusing on one of the Commonwealth Climate Resilience Network’s (CCRN) two primary strategic priorities:

Increasing universities’ contribution to community, industry, and government resilience
The funds may be utilized for a variety of initiatives, seminars, and events, including:
- Improving climate change adaptation learning, teaching, and training – for example, virtual exchange or cooperation, teaching or professional practice cooperation, sharing, and co-creation of educational resources
- Increasing CCRN members’ climate change adaptation research ability – for example, via virtual fellowships or cooperation, comparative analyses, research management and uptake capacity development, and understanding and recording indigenous knowledge and resilience practices.
- Improving the policies and practices of Commonwealth universities in terms of institutional resilience — for example, establishing tools, training, and techniques to enhance contingency and continuity of operations planning at higher education institutions.
