Secretarial Order 3289

Addressing the Impacts of Climate Change on America's Water, Land, and Other Natural and Cultural Resources (9/14/09)

… the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has been developing regional science centers … currently known as "regional hubs“ of the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center…

The Climate Change & Energy Response Council will work with USGS and other Department bureaus to rename these regional science centers as Regional Climate Science Centers and broaden their mandate …

  • CSCs will deliver basic climate change impact science.

  • CSCs will prioritize fundamental science, data and decision-support activities.

  • CSCs will partner with and help facilitate the coordination of fundamental climate science capabilities across their regions of responsibility.

  • CSCs will synthesize, integrate, and communicate existing climate change impact data.

  • CSCs will partner with resource managers at pertinent LCCs to assist development of science-based adaptation strategies.
