Title: Thematic Synthesis Projects: Informing Sustainability and Adaptation Decisions through Assessment and Modeling of Ecosystem Services
Sponsor: National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center
Deadline: 5/10/12
Amount: Unspecified

Description/Eligibility: SESYNC seeks proposals for activities related to data, modeling and methods that will improve our capacity to observe ecosystem services. This includes measures of social processes and outcomes related to the ecosystem services’ benefits to households, communities, and businesses – and biophysical outcomes related to the presence or production of beneficial ecological features and processes. In general, there is a need for observational tools that foster spatial measurement and for analysis that facilitates integration of social and biophysical data across local, regional and global scales. There is also a need for time-series observations to detect changes in socio-ecological systems and the production and benefit of ecosystem services. Ideally, proposals should provide insights and improve methods needed to understand and respond to current conditions as well as anticipation of and adaptation to future scenarios. We also encourage proposals that place emphasis on information relevant not just to research, but also to natural resource decision-making.
