NC CASC at the Fifth National Climate Assessment All Authors Meeting
Last week, contributors and authors convened in Washington, D.C. to work on the Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5). This is part of a series of documents created by the US Global Change Research Program to analyze impacts of global change in the United States as well as current trends in global change and projections for the future. Topics include climate trends, land use change, ecosystem services and biodiversity, and more; this assessment will ultimately be used by Congress and federal agencies, and will be available for the public.
Several NC CASC members attended the latest All Authors meeting:
Northern Plains chapter: Aparna Bamzai-Dodson and Stefan Tangen
Tribes and Indigenous Peoples chapter: James Rattling Leaf
Water chapter: Imtiaz Rangwala
After final revisions and agency reviews this summer, the assessment will be available to read in Fall 2023.
