Developing a Strategy to Evaluate the National Climate Assessment: Call for Experts

About the Activity & the Call for Experts

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is seeking suggestions for experts to participate in the new study tasked with developing a strategy for evaluating stakeholder use of the National Climate Assessment (NCA) and selected other US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) products.  The study will consist of a methodological framework and design for a future evaluation and plans for gathering relevant information and data to support such an evaluation including criteria to prioritize stakeholder groups to participate.

Using these suggestions, National Academies staff will be looking to build a committee of approximately 12  volunteer experts in addition to collecting information for potential speakers, participants, and peer reviewers for any publications resulting from the activity.

Based on the Statement of Task, staff are looking for expertise particularly in the following areas:

  • Evaluation Instrument Design/Implementation
  • Climate Communication
  • Stakeholder Engagement (engagement with policymakers, decision makers, etc.)
  • Engagement with Historically Marginalized Communities and Underrepresented Stakeholders
  • Development Process for National Climate Assessment
  • Use of the National Climate Assessment for Decision-Making
The National Academies are committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion in order to strengthen the quality of our work. Diverse perspectives contribute to finding innovative approaches and solutions to challenging issues. We encourage the suggestion of experts who reflect the populations we serve and also welcome in particular suggestions of experts from underrepresented racial, ethnic, gender and sexual identity groups, people with disabilities, and early- and mid-career professionals.

We invite you to submit your suggestions by September 29, 2023 using this survey form.
