Maryland and Delaware Climate Change Education Assessment and Research

National Climate Assessment, U.S. Global Change Research Program
As directed by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, the National Climate Assessment (NCA) represents a collaboration of 13 Federal science agencies, a 60-member advisory committee, and 240 academic, government, private, and nonprofit sector authors. Using broad reaching scientific information, the NCA synthesizes and communicates the current knowledge in climate change science, assesses the gaps in knowledge, and projects future trends.  The NCA’s goals include informing Federal and climate science research priorities, building climate-literacy, and serving as a resource for U.S. citizens, communities and businesses to use when making sustainability plans. The next National Climate Assessment report is due for release in 2013. For additional information, visit
