It is becoming imperative that we determine how society can best integrate social, ecological, physical, and built environments to provide for growing demand for food, energy and water (FEW) in the short term while also maintaining appropriate ecosystem services for the future. The overarching goal of the INFEWS program is to catalyze well-integrated, convergent research to transform understanding of the FEW Nexus as integrated social, engineering, physical, and natural systems in order to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability. This solicitation allows the partner agencies--National Science Foundation and the United States Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA)--to combine resources to identify and fund the most meritorious and highest-impact projects that support their respective missions, while eliminating duplication of effort and fostering collaboration between agencies and the investigators they support.
Proposals are due September 26, 2018.
