Last edited 4/26/2016

ALEXANDRIA, VA, October 25, 2012—The Department of Defense's (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

The Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area supports the development of the science, technologies, and methods needed to manage DoD's installation infrastructure in a sustainable way. SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following two focused Statements of Need (SON) in Resource Conservation and Climate Change:

- Recovery of Ecological Processes Impacted by Non-Native Invasive Species in the Pacific Islands

- Climate Change Impacts to Built Infrastructure in Alaska

Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 SONs will be selected through a competitive process. All pre-proposals are due to SERDP by Tuesday, January 8, 2013. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP web site at
