APPENDIX A

Statement ofTask

The Advisory Committee will author a short report that provides high-level guidance on research priorities for the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) as a way to proactively meet their charge to advise the Program on broad, Program-wide issues, and to identify topics of importance to the global change science community. The Committee will consider how USGCRP can best meet the mandate of the US Global Change Research Act of 1990, given the significant climate change impacts happening today and projected to increase in the future. In addressing its charge, the Committee will:

  • Provide a short update on accomplishments of USGCRP to date;
  • Identify the most critical global change risks and uncertainties facing the nation and the world in the next 5-10 years;
  • Recommend priorities for research needed to advance understanding of these risks and uncertainties and to support decision making at local to national scales; and
  • Discuss opportunities for USGCRP participating agencies and other partners to advance the identified research priorities and applications to decision contexts, including new approaches for better linking the process of scientific deliberations with people who use information.

The US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is a collection of 13 Federal entities charged by law to assist the United States and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and natural processes of global change. Global Change Research Needs and Opportunities for 2022-2031 advises the USGCRP on how best to meet its mandate in light of climate change impacts happening today and projected into the future. This report identifies critical climate change risks, research needed to support decision-making relevant to managing these risks, and opportunities for the USGCRP's participating agencies and other partners to advance these research priorities over the next decade.
