Jan 25: Webinar with Global Change Research Program

The Global Change Research Program is hosting a public webinar next week on the Health Chapter and health-related content of the 4th National Climate Assessment (NCA4).  The webinar is timed prior to the close of the open comment period for the NCA4 to give commenters an opportunity to ask questions of the health chapter author team and assist health stakeholders in responding to the draft. The webinar will provide background on the NCA, its health content, and will provide guidance on how to access and use the Review & Comment system at review.globalchange.gov.

The public comment period for the draft NCA4 report is open until Jan 31st. This review period is a critical component of the NCA process and a great opportunity for individuals and groups to get involved, so we hope that you will encourage your networks to review and comment on the draft by visiting review.globalchange.gov before Jan 31!
