Human activity is causing the depletion of essential resources, global warming, rapid loss of biodiversity, and accelerating de-gradation of Earth's life support systems. These developments threaten the livelihoods, health, and security of people in all nations and cultures as well as the well being of the greater community of life. The Rockerfeller Brothers Fund's sustainable development grantmaking endeavors to address these challenges by supporting environmental stewardship that is ecologically based, economically sound, socially just, culturally appropriate, and consistent with intergenerational equity. The Fund encourages government, business, and civil society to work collaboratively on environmental conservation and to make it an integral part of all development planning and activity. (GA 3/08)

Communications technology that can provide seamless, robust, connectivity is at the foundation of the Sea Power 21 and FORCEnet vision...to have the right information, at the right place, at the right time... The performance of Command and Control (C2) systems and decision making at all levels of command depend critically on reliable, interoperable, survivable, secure and timely communications and networking, and the availability of high capacity multimedia (voice, data, imagery) communication networks is fundamental to nearly all Department of Navy missions. The current evolution of naval warfighting from a platform-centric to a network-centric paradigm depends on successfully meeting the implied need for significantly enhanced communications and networking capabilities, extending both to fixed shore facilities and to highly mobile air, surface, land and subsurface platforms, including the so-called disadvantaged user, e.g., small-deck combatants, submarines, unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), dispersed ground units in urban and radio frequency (RF) challenged environments. The goal of the Communications and Networking Program within the Office of Naval Research (ONR 312) is to support the FORCEnet vision by developing measurable advances in technology that can directly enable and enhance end-to-end connectivity for mission-critical information exchange among such widely dispersed naval, joint and coalition forces.
