USGCRP is implementing a sustained National Climate Assessment process that will ultimately facilitate continuous and transparent participation of scientists and stakeholders across regions and sectors, enabling new information and insights to be synthesized as they emerge. Current sustained assessment activities are listed below; more information will be added as it becomes available. To learn more about the sustained assessment process, read the Sustained Assessment Special Report (developed by the National Climate Assessment & Development Advisory Committee) or contact the Engagement staff.
Join NCAnet—a national “network of networks” working to extend the National Climate Assessment process and products to a broader audience.
