The National Global Change Research Plan 2012-2021: A Strategic Plan for the U. S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP)
This plan was mandated by the Global Change Research Act of 1990 (GCRA, P.L. 101-606) and will serve as the guiding document for USGCRP for the next decade. It is built around four strategic goals: advance science, inform decisions, conduct sustained assessments, and communicate and educate. In addition to these four goals, the Plan emphasizes the importance of national and international partnerships that leverage Federal investments and provide for the widest use of Program results. This Plan builds on the Program's strengths in integrated observations, modeling, and information services for science that serves societal needs and fully addresses the GCRA's mandate to "understand, assess, predict and respond to human-induced and natural causes of global change."
