RDCEP is being funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the Decision Making Under Uncertainty (DMUU) program.
The primary goal of DMUU is to "advance fundamental understanding of decision making under uncertainty for climate change and related long-term environmental risks." In addition, the Center is expected "to provide new knowledge about how public officials, firms in the private sector, other groups, and/or individuals can incorporate existing knowledge about climate change and related long-term environmental risks into their decisions."
In total, the NSF awarded funding to four university-based centers under the most recent DMUU program.
Additional information about the DMUU program can be found on NSF's web site.
