The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), in collaboration with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, is seeking public comment on the prospectus for its National Global Change Research Plan (2022-2031). The opportunity to provide comment runs through January 11, 2022. The prospectus can be accessed by visiting USGCRP’s Review and Comment System. In addition to feedback on the strategic pillars and priorities, USGCRP is seeking input on themes or topics that should be included in the final Strategic Plan. Respondents should consider ideas on emerging, large-scale scientific questions related to global change and/or response, especially those where interagency collaboration will be critical; specific information on how science is or is not being used to inform societal response to climate change, and why; and knowledge gaps and obstacles to implementing scientific tools or knowledge.
