A primary goal for the National Climate Assessment is to establish permanent assessment capacity both inside and outside of the federal government. Building on two previous National Climate Assessment Reports (2000 and 2009), the US Global Change Research Program has established the National Climate Assessment as an ongoing process that engages people and organizations across the country in creating and maintaining the information infrastructure needed to conduct sustained assessments that improve our country’s ability to understand, anticipate, and respond to climate change impacts and vulnerabilities.
