Appendix A: Statement of Task for This Report

The Advisory Committee will conduct an independent review of the U.S. Global Change Research Program’s draft update to the strategic plan (USP). The Advisory Committee’s review will take place concurrent with public review. The Advisory Committee will address the following questions about the draft update:

  1. Does the USP adequately document the status of USGCRP efforts to achieve the goals and objectives laid out in the Strategic Plan for responding to the Nation’s needs for information on climate change and global change, their potential implications, and the potential effects of different response options?
  2. Does the USP appropriately identify areas where USGCRP should continue to put emphasis, as well as areas that require increased attention? If the USP identifies any new areas of emphasis or areas needing increased attention for the USGCRP, are these topics and the efforts identified for approaching them appropriate for the Program?
  3. Does the written document describing the program effectively communicate with both stakeholders and the scientific community?

The Update to the Strategic Plan (USP) is a supplement to the Ten-Year Strategic Plan of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) completed in 2012. The Strategic Plan sets out a research program guiding thirteen federal agencies in accord with the Global Change Research Act of 1990. This report reviews whether USGCRP’s efforts to achieve its goals and objectives, as documented in the USP, are adequate and responsive to the Nation’s needs, whether the priorities for continued or increased emphasis are appropriate, and if the written document communicates effectively, all within a context of the history and trajectory of the Program.
