US National Climate Assessment underway, input sought

January 13, 2022

Since 1990, the United States has produced its own national climate assessment report to, in the words of the project’s director Allison Crimmins, “provide Americans with information on the accelerating impacts, vulnerabilities and responses to the climate crisis.” Work on the fifth assessment is well underway and NOAA has made available for public comment annotated outlines of each of the 32 chapters included in the draft report.  In addition to the public comments on the report, there are a series of open workshops daily over the next several weeks to allow the public to engage more actively in the process. The list of topics and schedule of times are available here.

The report and workshops cover both national and system-level topics as well as climate change in 10 regions of the U.S. Comments will be accepted for 45 days.
