Atlantic Canada faces unique and difficult challenges as climate change progresses. This targeted funding opportunity is intended to support short term, rapid initiatives which will advance identification, development and/or adoption of genomics tools that lead to solutions that help to combat climate change.

The goal for this program is to provide a foundation for Atlantic Canadian stakeholders to pursue subsequent larger scale Climate Change funding initiatives, such as Genome Canada’s anticipated flagship mission.

The Small-Scale Climate Change Fund is led by Genome Atlantic, in partnership with Research Nova Scotia.
