Surdna Foundation Sustainable Environments Program - 0 views

  •  
    The Sustainable Environments Program seeks to create just and sustainable communities in four ways:

    Sustainable Transportation Networks & Equitable Development Patterns
    We support clean, affordable, equitable, high-quality and efficient transportation and land use development that better connects critical services, jobs, schools, housing and other regional destinations.

    Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment
    No longer accepting grants. New guidelines are under construction to reflect the new direct of Surdna's work in the energy arena.

    Urban Water Management
    We support efforts to capture storm water and slowly release it into the existing network of drains, pipes and sewers, or reuse it where it falls to cultivate natural green spaces.

    Regional Food Supply
    We support ways to make it easier to get local, sustainably produced food from our farms to the markets closest to where it's grown, and to better connect food producers and consumers.

    We seek organizations that:

    -Promote meaningful collaborations and an integrated approach to infrastructure solutions (i.e., ways in which transportation, energy, water, and food systems can be combined);
    -Focus on infrastructure decisions that better meet the needs of historically underserved communities including low-income communities and people of color;
    -Promote long-term solutions and leverage strategic infrastructure investments;
    -Highlight, especially through communications, the multiple benefits of next generation infrastructure.

Plant Biotic Interactions (nsf17551) | NSF - National Science Foundation - 0 views

  •  
    The Plant Biotic Interactions (PBI) program supports research on the processes that mediate beneficial and antagonistic interactions between plants and their viral, bacterial, oomycete, fungal, plant, and invertebrate symbionts, pathogens and pests. This joint NSF-NIFA program supports projects focused on current and emerging model and non-model systems, and agriculturally relevant plants. The program's scope extends from fundamental mechanisms to translational efforts, with the latter seeking to put into agricultural practice insights gained from basic research on the mechanisms that govern plant biotic interactions. Projects must be strongly justified in terms of fundamental biological processes and/or relevance to agriculture and may be purely fundamental or applied, or include aspects of both perspectives. All types of symbiosis are appropriate, including commensalism, mutualism, parasitism, and host-pathogen interactions. Research may focus on the biology of the plant host, its pathogens, pests or symbionts, interactions among these, or on the function of plant-associated microbiomes. The program welcomes proposals on the dynamics of initiation, transmission, maintenance and outcome of these complex associations, including studies of metabolic interactions, immune recognition and signaling, host-symbiont regulation, reciprocal responses among interacting species and mechanisms associated with self/non-self recognition such as those in pollen-pistil interactions.

Minor Crop Pest Management Program Interregional Research Project #4 (IR-4) | National ... - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of the IR-4 program is to enable the crop protection industry to provide safe, effective, and economical crop protection products for growers and consumers of minor/specialty crops. The crop protection industry cannot justify the costs associated with the research and development, registration, production, and marketing of crop protection products for minor/specialty crops due to the smaller market base and limited sales potential. The IR-4 program provides the assistance needed to ensure that new and more effective crop protection products are developed and made available to minor/specialty crop producers. These efforts require effective collaborations among federal agencies, the crop protection industry, and land-grant colleges and universities.

Food Safety Preventive Controls and Produce Safety Standards: Building Competency in La... - 0 views

  •  
    Given the importance of the region in exporting human food to the United States, FDA proposes working with a multilateral institution in the region, specifically the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), to develop an expert cadre to foster FSMA standards implementation. IICA has been a strong U.S. government partner in Latin America and the Caribbean and can effectively play a pivotal role in FSMA training in the region. The activities undertaken under this Cooperative Agreement would be targeted to training FDA's regulatory counterparts who commit to doing further training in their respective countries, academia, and industry representatives. By training regulators, IICA would be providing up-to-date information on FDA FSMA requirements, as well as good agricultural practice knowledge. If regulators or appropriate government institutions become trainers of the Alliance curriculum, they could possibly offer the training at lower costs, which can be a prohibitive factor for smaller business entities in understanding and implementing FSMA produce safety standards.
