Expanding Engagement with USGCRP
A better understanding of the needs of USGCRP stakeholders helps ensure that the scientific products USGCRP provides are clear, topical, and applicable to the specific needs of users at multiple levels. As USGRCP looks ahead, the information gained from engagement activities will help shape the future of the Program. NOAA, on USGCRP’s behalf, has convened a 15-member Federal Advisory Committee (FAC) to advise the sustained-assessment process on enhancing engagement with stakeholders, assessment activities, and the quadrennial NCA report. FAC members are strategic thought leaders with expertise in science, communications, engagement, and education, and will advise USGCRP on how to make the sustained-assessment process and products more useful to USGCRP stakeholders, as well as to connect the Program to new groups that would not be reached otherwise.
