Following is a message that went out from the USGCRP about upcoming public engagement workshops (virtual) on the fifth National Climate Assessment, which is underway and planned for delivery in 2023. These reports focus on how climate change affects people and places in the U.S. The workshops include a wide range of topics (e.g., air quality, economics, land use/land cover change, coastal effects, etc.), communities (e.g., agriculural and rural; tribal and indigenous people; urban/cities, etc.), and geographic regions. Please share with your networks and communities.  

 

Forwarded message  

The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and the authors of the Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5) are hosting a series of virtual public engagement workshops to inform development of this federal climate report. These workshops are free and open to the public.The information gathered in this workshop will help authors decide which topics to cover in their chapter of the Fifth National Climate Assessment, a major U.S. Government report on how climate change affects people and places in the United States.

To register for any of the events, please click here. Please share this announcement broadly and encourage your networks to join. Public engagement is an important part of the National Climate Assessment development process and ensures that the author teams prioritize information that is most relevant to decision makers and other stakeholders.

About the report: The National Climate Assessment is a Congressionally mandated quadrennial report led by the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The report evaluates the effects of climate change on regions and sectors of the United States and reports on trends in climate change for the next 25 to 100 years. The Fifth National Climate Assessment will highlight advances in scientific understanding of human-induced and natural processes of climate change and the resulting implications for the United States. Major themes will be presented through the lens of vulnerability, impacts, risks, and adaptation. The report is expected for release in late 2023.
