Congress has asked the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) to analyze organizational options for establishing a Climate Service at NOAA. This study will be used to inform NOAA's ongoing work on this topic. A critical component of the Academy's study is to identify mechanisms to fully engage stakeholders that could be utilized by a Climate Service to effectively fulfill its mission. Everyone is invited to participate.
For 14 days, beginning on Monday, June 14th, the Academy will host an online dialogue to inform the study, which will be delivered to NOAA, Congress, and the public in September 2010.
