Alberta Land Institute Issues Call for Proposals

The Alberta Land Institute (ALI) announces a Call for Proposals for its research grants competition in four research areas. The deadline for receipt of applications is November 30, 2012. We expect that successful applicants will be notified by January 15, 2013.

Research topics for the four proposals are:

  • Assessing Property Rights and Land Use Regulation
  • Evaluation Mechanisms for Wetland Restoration in Alberta
  • Assessing the Implications of Fragmentation and Conversion of the Agricultural Land Based on Municipal Development
  • Identifying Trade-offs and Management Options in the Alberta Irrigation Sector over the next 25 Years.

Call for Proposals documents can be found on the ALI website.

Proposals must be in line with ALI’s mandate to provide evidence-based policy options to resolve land-use issues, support dialogue with stakeholders and identify new approaches to secure Alberta’s prosperity through transformational land management.
