Regional Climate Change Workshops.
The White House Office of Science and
Technology Policy and the U.S. Global Climate Change Research Program are
sponsoring a series of workshops to examine the vulnerabilities of
various regions of the United States to climate variability and climate
change and to gather information across regions to support national
scientific assessment (called for in the Global Change Research Act of
1990). Eighteen workshops with the full involvement of relevant
stakeholders are being held in different regions of the country.
