The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) is soliciting requests for funding proposals to convene interdisciplinary teams to tackle questions at the heart of sustainable economic development, human well-being, and nature conservation.
The proposed projects should address clear and intriguing science questions, with the outcomes forging a direct path to impacting policy or practice. There will be special emphasis for this round of proposals on the issues of climate change, sanitation, and water security.
SNAPP brings together teams of 12-18 people from diverse organizations referred to as working groups. SNAPP working groups meet intensively in 3-4 in-person collaborative sessions (lasting 3-5 days each) over the course of 18-24 months. Between sessions, team members collaborate remotely to publish research, develop implementation tools and products, and support decision-makers' use of the results.

SNAPP is a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, Wildlife Conservation Society, and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
