In the first week of May, the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) plans to release the report of the third U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA). The NCA is a climate status report authorized every four years under the Global Change Research Act of 1990. It is based on the best available science and written by hundreds of scientists and experts from academia; government; the private; and non-profit sectors.
The USGCRP released the draft report for public comment nearly a year ago. The Security and Sustainability forum hosted a series last year on the draft NCA findings. For free access to those recordings join SSF
for free. The recordings are posted under the Archive tab
on the website.
Registration is open for the webinar:
