Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems (CNH2) Crosscutting Programs
If you submitted a Letter of Intent (LOI) to the December 2018 deadline and are planning to submit one to the September 17, 2019 deadline, please note that the system retained your earlier submission and issues a warning that you have already submitted when you are trying to submit again. Please IGNORE this warning and submit your new LOI. The system lets you submit another.

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.
PIs are encouraged to develop proposals that push conceptual boundaries and build new theoretical framings of the understanding of socio-environmental systems. Additionally, we encourage the exploration of multi-scalar dynamics, processes and feedbacks between and within the socio-environmental system.
