Overview:

The Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems (CNH) Program supports interdisciplinary research that examines human and natural system processes and the complex interactions among human and natural systems at diverse scales. 

Research projects to be supported by CNH must include analyses of four different components:

  1. The dynamics of a natural system
  2. The dynamics of a human system
  3. The processes through which the natural system affects the human system
  4. The processes through which the human system affects the natural system. 

CNH also supports research coordination networks (CNH-RCNs) designed to facilitate activities that promote future research by broad research communities that will include all four components necessary for CNH funding.

CNH will support research projects in two different categories:

  • CNH Large Research Projects
    • Awards in this category provide two to five years of support for projects ranging in size from $500,000 to $1,800,000.
  • CNH Small Research Projects
    • Awards in this category provide two to five years of support for projects ranging in size from $150,000 to $500,000.

Large and small research projects are expected to differ in scope. For example, small projects may have fewer study sites or 4 personnel, may study systems with fewer key processes, or may require less time. Proposals for small projects are not expected to compete with proposals for large projects; large and small projects will be evaluated independently. Note that both large and small research projects must include research on all four of the CNH components, as previously described
