Hosted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
On December 6, 2022, USGCRP released the U.S. Global Change Research Program 2022–2031 Strategic Plan, which sets the course for Federal global change research for the next decade.
The Plan, which was informed by input and review from Federal agencies, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and the public, lays the foundation for meeting new and growing challenges, as well as demands for useful, accessible, and inclusive data and information. It is organized around four pillars: Advancing Science; Engaging the Nation; Informing Decisions; and Collaborating Internationally.
In this roundtable event, global change experts were invited to share their thoughts on these pillars and the future of research and engagement in the United States and beyond.
