The 2022 funding round for the Greenhouse Gas Inventory Research (GHGIR) fund is not yet open for applications.
What to include in your GHGIR application
- clearly describe the scientific methodology of the proposed work
- clearly describe how the work will result in improvements to the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, forestry, and other land use
- identify the project's deliverables and key risks
- describe how the project will be successfully delivered
- consider Māori perspectives, aspirations, and opportunities

- include a well-considered project plan.
To assess your application, we need robust information and as much evidence as possible.
How we assess funding applications
Applications are assessed against 7 criteria to determine how well they qualify and whether they will receive funding.
- Alignment to the emissions reporting needs of agriculture, forestry, and other land uses.
- Value for money.
- Ability to deliver outcomes.
- Alignment to research priorities.
- Science excellence.
We encourage collaboration between multiple research organisations.
Applications are assessed by a panel of subject matter experts. Final decisions are made by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). All applicants are told whether they were successful after the panel meeting. Successful applicants can then finalise their project milestones and sign GHGIR funding contracts.
Projects can begin once the contract is signed.
