The U.S. Climate Change Science Program Office, incorporating the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and the Climate Change Research Initiative (CCRI), recently launched its Web site, http://www.climatescience.gov. The new site will be the main clearinghouse for information on the Bush Administration's interagency climate science initiative -- including its Strategic Plan, which will provide the principal guidance for the U.S. global change and climate change research programs during the next several years.
Visitors to the Web site will also find information on the upcoming U.S. Climate Change Science Program: Planning Workshop for Scientists and Stakeholders, set to take place on December 3-5 in Washington, D.C. Interested members of the scientific, international, and stakeholder communities may also register electronically for the workshop on the Web site.
Media are invited to register and attend the U.S. Climate Change Science Program: Planning Workshop for Scientists and Stakeholders. The workshop will be held Dec. 3-5, 2002 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road, NW, Washington, D.C. Registration and logistical information is available at http://www.climatescience.gov. Pre-registration by Nov. 15 is recommended.
U.S. Climate Change Science Program Office (CCSPO) was organized in
response to President Bush’s Climate Change Research Initiative
(CCRI) to create an integrated, credible climate science program that
utilizes the best resources of the federal government and its domestic
and international partners for increased scientific inquiry, observation
and monitoring for the development of decision-support information for
policymakers. Located and directed through the U.S.
Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) the CCSPO is jointly sponsored by 13 U.S. government
agencies and includes representatives of each of the sponsoring agencies.
