The National Geographic Enduring Impacts: Archaeology of Sustainability Request for Proposal (RFP) focuses on the gathering and analysis of archaeological, paleoenvironmental, and paleoclimatological data for the purposes of increasing our understanding of human-environmental interactions over time, to ultimately contribute to mitigating contemporary environmental and climatic crises. Current issues like climate change, overpopulation, disruptions in food security, and loss of habitat and biodiversity are threats that were faced and sometimes overcome by societies in the past. While the challenges we face today may be unprecedented in scale and demographic impact, there is a wealth of information on how people articulated with, mediated, and in many cases impacted long-term environmental trends over millennia. This knowledge can be employed in the development of future strategies in environmental sustainability- and resilience-building, and in understanding how human actions in the past continue to affect present-day communities in their ability to tackle environmental and climatic challenges. Six webinars about this RFP, and how to apply, will be held on February 25, February 27, March 11, March 13, March 24, March 26, 2020.

Please note: April 22, 2020 is the next deadline to submit a proposal for this funding opportunity. For more information go to: https://www.nationalgeographic.org/funding-opportunities/grants/what-we-fund/enduring-impacts/
