MessageSujet: Borlaug Global Research Alliance Fellowships in USA, 2015 Mar 19 Aoû 2014 - 15:21

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is now accepting applications for the 2015 Borlaug Global Research Alliance Fellowships. Fellows will be selected from 12 countries that are members of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases. Fellows will work with a mentor at USDA’s Agricultural Research Service or a U.S. university for up to 12 weeks on climate change mitigation research. The U.S. mentor will later visit the fellow’s home institution to continue collaboration.
The application deadline is October 31, 2014.
Objectives:

  • To provide early-to-midcareer agricultural research scientists, faculty, and policymakers with individual training opportunities in climate change mitigation research
  • To provide practical experience and exposure to new perspectives and/or technologies that can be applied in their home institutions
  • To foster increased collaboration and networking to improve agricultural productivity and trade
  • To facilitate the transfer of new scientific and agricultural technologies to strengthen agricultural practices
  • To address obstacles to the adoption of technology such as ineffectual policies and regulations

Eligible Countries: Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Vietnam
Targeted Research Areas: 
1. Developing Tools for Greenhouse Gas and Carbon Sequestration Assessments

  • Develop easily used methods for measuring or estimating greenhouse gas emissions in agricultural settings
  • Develop easily used methods for measuring or estimating carbon sequestration in agricultural soils
  • Develop and field test user-friendly software for quantifying and reporting emissions under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

2. Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity in Crop Production Systems

  • Identify agricultural management strategies leading to reduced net greenhouse gas emissions per unit of commodity produced in agronomic (including rice), horticultural, or agro-forestry crop systems
  • Develop models for application of experimental data in decision support tools for different crop or agro-forestry systems in different countries

3. Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity in Livestock Production Systems 

  • Identify agricultural management strategies leading to reduced net greenhouse gas emissions per unit of commodity produced in grazing or confined animal production systems
  • Develop models for application of experimental data in decision support tools for livestock production systems in different countries

4. Developing Databases and Strategies for Synthesis, Integration and Decision Support to Manage Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Carbon Sequestration in Agricultural Systems 

  • Develop databases assembled from different research teams working on identifying methods to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration
  • Develop process models as a foundation for projecting emissions and sequestration in different agricultural systems and for decision support tools
