ESA National Nature Assessment Water Cooler Chat

In April 2022, the Biden administration announced the launch of the first-ever U.S. National Nature Assessment (NNA). Led by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, this report will assess the state of the U.S.A’s lands, waters and wildlife and the specific benefits that they provide. The assessment will also allow the country to look ahead at how nature might change in the future and identify opportunities for investments in nature to help achieve climate, health, environmental justice and economic goals.ESA will hold a water cooler chat about National Nature Assessment and the White House’s request for information about framing the National Nature Assessment.Come to the water cooler chat at 10am M.T. on Monday January 9 to discuss options for contributing to the National Nature Assessment framework.This is an informal Zoom meeting to hear thoughts from the ecological community.
