The Fifth National Climate Assessment

The Fifth National Climate Assessment is the US Government’s preeminent report on climate change impacts, risks, and responses. The NCA5 aims to provide the scientific foundation needed to inform decision making across the United States. A team of more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee produce the report, which is extensively reviewed by federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences as well as the public. The NCA5 serves as a crucial resource for guiding climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, helping to inform policies, investments, and climate mitigation strategies.

Chapter 11 of the Fifth National Climate Assessment focuses on adaptation and mitigation strategies to help farmers, subsistence-based communities, and rural populations address issues caused by climate change. For more information visit the link below.
