Aspen

This meeting engaged federal agencies and academics in exploring how to design a national assessment process that examines the vulnerabilities of the U.S. to climate change in terms of: its ecological systems, its major economic sectors, and its social infrastructure. Topics included: assessment of previous regional assessments, how to integrate regional stakeholder input, and how to consider different sectors with the overall goal of satisfying the US Global Change Act requirement for providing the nation with a comprehensive climate impact assessment.
