global science needs new partnerships
Global Science Needs New Partnerships

NSF

USAID

  • Mission: scientific research
  • Primary client: US science community
  • Funding to US institutions
  • Awards based on merit review
  • Mission: foreign assistance
  • Primary clients: developing countries
  • Funding to foreign partner via US institution
  • Bureaus, regions, and missions need buy-in

benefits of leveraged funding
Benefits of Leveraged Funding

USAID Benefits:

  • Scientist-to-scientist relationships build capacity
  • Development needs and perspective included in research effort
  • Institutional linkages endure over time
  • Scientists communicate when politicians don’t or won’t

NSF Benefits:

  • US science is more effective with fully engaged and funded international partners
  • Foreign scientists possess local and regional knowledge
  • Research questions span borders and are global in nature

adapting to a world without glaciers
Adapting to a World without Glaciers

Questions:

  • What do you do when the water cycle changes?
  • How do we begin to adapt to such a different future?

Outcomes:

  • Research and action agendas for water, agricultural, and biodiversity sectors
