The OML Center is now accepting expression of interest and nominations for the composition of its Technical Review Panel (TRP). Members of the TRP review and advise on proposal enhancement and project improvement on a per project basis depending on expertise and project’s core areas as follows: : 1) Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Urban Areas and Critical Watersheds; 2) Advances in Climate Science (downscaling climate scenarios; sensors/instruments for climate prediction); 3) Strategies on Flood and Water Management; 4) Climate Change Impacts on Terrestrial, Aquatic and Urban Ecosystems; 5) Enhanced Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessments; 6) Integrated Ecosystem-Based Management; 7) Climate-Responsive Sectors (forestry, agriculture, health, infrastructure etc.); and 8) Capacity Building and Mainstreaming DRRM and CCA into Development Planning.
Those experts who have experience aligned to the Center’s research focus and with experience in “grant-making” process are highly encouraged to accomplish our Expert Background Information Sheet (EBIS). We will contact you if we will receive research proposals that match your interest and expertise. By completing our EBIS, you will automatically be part of the Philippine interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral network of researchers, academics and practitioners that OML Center is currently developing to enhance the understanding and prediction of climate change and geohazards impacts as well as to generate innovative science-based solutions to climate-related risks and disasters.
