Purpose: to prepare for future environmental challenges by enhancing community capacity to plan and implement resiliency projects and improve the protections afforded by natural ecosystems by investing in green infrastructure and other measures. The program will focus on water quality and quantity declines, forest health concerns, and sea level rise. The program will emphasize community inclusion and assistance to traditionally underserved populations in vulnerable areas.
Funding priorities for this program include:
High-impact resiliency adaptations to help communities prepare for fire in the U.S. West, floods and droughts in the Mid-West, and sea-level rise on the Eastern seaboard.
Community demonstration and capacity-building projects that help communities understand environmental risks and opportunities and organize and take actions to improve local resiliency by enhancing natural buffers and system functions.

The interdisciplinary Spring 2017 EARThS Conference seeks papers that address such questions from graduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and biophysical sciences at University of Idaho and Washington State University. Ideal papers will focus on case studies or cross-sectional analyses of (1) creative approaches to examine the past, present, or future of environmental issues or (2) interdisciplinary efforts that seek to address or adapt to such problems in local, regional, national, and/or international venues.
We have attached the abstract submission form and we encourage everyone to apply. Abstract submissions are due by March 10th and can be emailed to email@example.com. You are also welcome to forward the call for abstracts to other researchers you think might be interested.

Abstract submission deadline: March 10, 2017 The environment is more politicized than ever and creative approaches are required to understand and address the environmental issues that pervade everyday life. Unfolding political realities, funding uncertainties and public confusion leave us in a crucial position to take stock of environmental issues. The conference will serve to forge or strengthen interdisciplinary ties as we critically reflect on the environment as a dynamic process of both physical conditions and social understandings. Together, we will explore pressing questions about how best to engage in meaningful interdisciplinary work to both recognize and respond to environmental realities. Ideal papers will focus on case studies or cross-sectional analyses of (1) creative approaches to examine the past, present, or future of environmental issues or (2) interdisciplinary efforts that seek to address or adapt to such problems in local, regional, national, and/or international venues. To submit abstracts please email firstname.lastname@example.org Conference date: April 1, 2017 at WSU FLYER
