Within the scope of its mission, the committee’s specific objective is to produce a National Climate Assessment that:a. Integrates, evaluates, and interprets the findings of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and discusses the scientific uncertainties with such findings;b. Analyzes the effects of current and projected climate change upon ecosystems and biological diversity, agriculture, energy production and use, land and water resources, transportation, human health and welfare, and social systems, including in a regional context; c. Analyzes current trends in global change, both human-induced and natural, and projects major trends for the subsequent 25 to 100 years;d. Provides guidance on establishing a continuing, inclusive National process that synthesizes relevant science and information about changes in the Earth system as they affect the Nation’s climate and about how such changes relate to and interact with changes in social, economic, ecological, and technological systems; ande. Support climate-related decisions by providing an information base in multiple formats, including web-based and hard copy formats. 024ff042-eef3-4e6f-a95d-577254e2d6d1 Make, Accept, Implement f48e5998-fd67-449e-b671-805727c20072 b6962718-c8a9-48a5-92db-5c5f5b9a450b Recommendations Made Number National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The final product of the NCADAC will be a report delivered in 2013.
