"The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) is one of the largest components of the U.S. climate program. CCSP is a multi-agency effort focused on improving our understanding of the science of climate change and its potential impacts.
The CCSP integrates federal research on climate and global change, as sponsored by thirteen federal agencies and overseen by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Council on Environmental Quality, the National Economic Council and the Office of Management and Budget."

"The planning and implementation of EPA’s climate research and assessment activities are closely coordinated with the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP). The CCSP Strategic Plan called for the production of 21 rigorously peer reviewed Synthesis and Assessment reports over a three-year period. EPA was a lead agency on the three reports listed below and contributed to most of the others.
• Report #4.1 Coastal Sensitivity to Sea-Level Rise: A Focus on the Mid-Atlantic Region.
• Report #4.4 Preliminary reviews of adaptation options for climate-sensitive ecosystems and resources.
• Report #4.6 Analyses of the effects of global change on human health and welfare and human systems.
These assessments were conducted through an open Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) process that strictly adhered to guidelines on information quality assurance and peer review."
