... The National Academies have established the CCI in order to:  More effectively meet the nation's needs for climate information by being responsive to and engaging with different audiences;  Identify the National Academies' particular niche in the broader landscape of climate communication efforts;  Leverage climate-related work from across the institution to more fully realize the potential of the information to meet user needs;  Develop innovative approaches to be nimbler and more responsive, and to proactively meet user needs in a rapidly changing context; and  Advance institutional coordination on this cross-cutting issue. The National Academies convened an external Advisory Committee (see Appendix for the member biosketches)

... In addition to consensus study reports, the National Academies have a long tradition of convening engagement activities -- including workshops and symposia through the work of roundtables and standing committees -- to bring together experts in a neutral setting to learn about the state of the science and provide decision makers with the best available information. These foundational values of objectivity and rigor provide an opportunity for the National Academies to stand as leaders in providing trusted information about the climate to more people than ever before.

... Ultimately, however, the Advisory Committee believes that the National Academies can do more to be a brighter "beacon" for the best available scientific and technological information needed to anticipate and respond to climate-related challenges and opportunities. Development of the Strategic Plan To develop a strategic plan for the CCI, the National Academies first brought together an internal advisory group composed of staff representing each programmatic division and central communication and outreach office, referred to as the CCI brain trust.
