Join March 25, 2024, Virtual Webinar with NSF Program Officers to Learn about the New CHIRRP Funding Opportunity to Support Co-Designed Projects to Safeguard Community Resilience

Natural hazards compounded by changing climates, rising populations, expanding demands for resources, and increasing reliance on technology are putting our economy, well-being, and national security at risk.

The goal of Confronting Hazards, Impacts and Risks for a Resilient Planet (CHIRRP) (PD 24-297Y) is to help safeguard communities and ecosystems for a resilient planet by supporting the co-design of projects that deliver evidence-based, actionable solution pathways reducing the risk from earth system hazards compounded by global environmental change.

Researchers, academics, and community leaders will work together on NSF-supported projects to advance understanding, forecasting and/or prediction of future Earth system hazards and risks, develop community-driven research questions, and inform actionable, science-based solutions that increase community resilience now and in the future.

CHIRRP projects will demonstrate convergence of three essential elements:

(1) Equitable community partnerships
(2) An Earth-system science approach to advance knowledge of hazards, impacts and risks
(3) Pathways to actionable solutions to increase increase environmental and societal resilience


Date: Monday, March 25
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST

NSF invites you to a virtual webinar to have an interactive conversation about this new program. Program Directors will provide a brief overview of the new opportunity and then answer questions about it. Have your questions ready for the NSF team.
