Title: CNH2 Research Projects

Sponsor: National Science Foundation

Funding: Large: $750,001 to $1,600,000; Small: $150,000 to $750,000; Research Co-ordination: Up to $500,000

Duration: 2 – 5 years

Deadline: LOI: December 17, 2018; Proposal: February 14, 2019

Description: The CNH2 Program supports research projects that advance basic scientific understanding of integrated socio-environmental systems and the complex interactions (dynamics, processes, and feedbacks) within and among the environmental (biological, physical and chemical) and human ("socio") (economic, social, political, or behavioral) components of such a system. The program seeks proposals that emphasize the truly integrated nature of a socio-environmental system versus two discrete systems (a natural one and a human one) that are coupled. CNH2 projects must explore a connected and integrated socio-environmental system that includes explicit analysis of the processes and dynamics between the environmental and human components of the system.
