Start Preamble


Request for public comment.


The U.S. Global Change Research Program is three years into the implementation of its National Global Change Research Plan 2012-2021 (​strategic-plan) hereafter called the Strategic Plan. That decadal Strategic Plan remains the continuing blueprint for USGCRP, with its strategic directions guiding the Program. There are areas, however, where the landscape has changed by virtue of significant progress, changing scientific or societal urgencies, or challenges.
