LUSTIG, Allyza (USGCRP) Engaging Anthropologists in the National Climate Assessment: Opportunities and Lessons Learned. The National Climate Assessment (NCA) is a quadrennial assessment produced by the U.S. Global Change Research Program that captures the latest knowledge on climate change science and impacts in the United States to support decision-making. While climate assessments are inherently interdisciplinary, the NCA has not yet engaged the social science community to its fullest potential. Doing so could enable a deeper understanding of the social, ecological, cultural, and physical systems surrounding climate change and more actionable research. At this panel, anthropologists will share their experiences with working on assessments and discuss opportunities for NCA engagement.
