Request for Proposals: Pathways Communication Grants Program (Round 2)


Following the success of the first round of the 2022 Pathways Communication Grant, which closed on January 31, 2022, we are happy to announce the second round of funding which is now open.

The response and number of applicants for the first round of funding was a reflection of a strong need from the community that we hope that this grant helps address. Specifically, the aim of the grant is to increase visibility, understanding and uptake of scientific contributions supporting the development of pathways for sustainability within non-expert audiences through  innovative dissemination formats and practices.

Proposals should outline and describe the importance of the communication product and its potential impact on the development of sustainable pathways and refer to completed research outcomes of projects that advance the understanding of at least one of the following three aspects of pathways for sustainability:

  1. How interactions at various scales in complex human-environment systems produce trade-offs or synergies within a context of competing development agendas and claims on resources,
  2. How transformations can be mobilized to enable expansion of integrated pathways to sustainability in diverse concrete contexts,
  3. How pathways and processes of transformation, which are likely to differ between places given differences in histories, contexts and values, interact across locations and scales, creating both tensions and synergies, and ‘add up’ to outcomes at the regional and global levels.


The deadline for the second call is October 31, 2022.
