Conducted every four years, the National Climate Assessment is a key resource for understanding and communicating climate change science and its effects across the United States. Its findings influence federal science priorities and are used by U.S. engineers, citizens, communities, and businesses as they create more sustainable and environmentally sound plans for the nation’s future. From Jan. 15 to Feb. 15, civil engineers have an opportunity to review the draft 2013 assessment. You will get an advance look at its findings and be able to make recommendations for its improvement, including any additional research needed. Find out how and where you can act now to provide your input to this influential federal report.
