Climate change projects are funded through many programs across NIFA ‘s 70+ program portfolio — in addition to those directly related to climate. Learn more about how climate-related work is funded across some of the more unapparent program area priorities within the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI).
This webinar is ideal for researchers, Extension personnel and educators who are interested in climate change-related work but are unsure of which funding opportunities to pursue. You’ll hear from national program leaders who will discuss specific climate-related projects that have been funded across AFRI — and you’ll come away with a few “unusual suspects” programs that support efforts in climate change resilience, adaptation, and mitigation.
The specific focus of this webinar will be climate-related work funded through less obvious program area priorities within AFRI’s Foundational and Applied Science (FAS) Request for Applications. Please note this webinar will focus on work outside of AFRI’s Sustainable Agricultural Systems (SAS) program area and the more overt climate program area priorities in AFRI FAS. Highlights will include a quick description of programs and climate change-focused projects in research, education, and Extension.
