2. ADDRESSING CRITICAL GLOBAL CHANGE
ISSUES THROUGH A RESEARCH FRAMEWORK
Global change research focuses on providing scientific insight into critical
global change issues and policy choices facing the nation and the world
community. Global change research to address these issues is organized into a
flexible multidisciplinary framework for coordinating science activities.
3. THE FY 1995 U.S. GLOBAL CHANGE RESEARCH PROGRAM
Each global change issue is addressed through a process which strives to
document, understand, predict, and assess the science in a way that yields
results that are relevant to the needs of decision makers.
4. LINKING TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY
The USGCRP is founded on the premise that international cooperation and
coordination is fundamental to addressing global environmental issues.
USGCRP programs significantly contribute to worldwide global change research
5. GLOBAL CHANGE EDUCATION AND PUBLIC AWARENESS
"The ultimate source of the strength of science will not be found in its
products or in its powerful instruments. It will be found in the minds of
scientists, and in the discourse which scientists have developed in order to
describe what they know..."
