The panelEdit

Many leading Earth scientists from the region and researchers from Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) were part of the panel’s work since its beginning.[2] Among them Cynthia Rosenzweig, who helped pioneer the study of climate change and agriculture.[3] Additionally, legal, insurance, and risk management experts are part of the NPCC.[1]

ReportsEdit

  • The first report NPCC1 was published in 2010, about adaptation and risk management response.[1]
  • The second report NPCC2 was published in 2013, about climate risk, based on observations, climate change projections, and maps.[4]
  • The third report NPCC3 was published in 2015, and provides climate projections until 2100.[5][6]
