Interior Department seeks climate change advisers

The notice, to be published in Thursday’s Federal Register, states that the committee will include members from federal, state and local governments, scientific and conservation groups, academics, Native American tribes, landowners, and businesses.

The group’s mission is to provide input on the “contents of a national strategy identifying key science priorities to advance management of natural resources in the face of climate change.”

It will also provide advice on ensuring scientific integrity and quality of the NCCWSC’s work.
