Description The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) coordinates research across 13 Federal agencies to better understand global change and prepare the Nation for its impacts.

Global change encompasses climate change; it also includes other processes that can interact with climate, such as changes in the water cycle, biogeochemical cycles, land use and management, demographics, and biodiversity.
