toward the development of an ongoing, sustainable national assessment 
of global change impacts and adaptation and mitigation strategies for

Matters To Be Considered

    Consideration of white papers provided by ad hoc working groups on 
the subjects of:
    1. The National Climate Assessment Interim Strategy, the NCA Draft 
Outline, and Federal Activities.
    2. Engagement Strategy and Requests for Information.
    3. Scenarios and Regional Summaries.
    4. Peer Review, Data Management and Development of a NCA Portal.
    Status: The meeting will be open to public participation with a 10-
minute public comment period from 4:45-4:55 p.m. The NCADAC expects 
that public statements presented at its meetings will not be repetitive

individual or group making a verbal presentation will be limited to a 
total time of two minutes. Written comments should be received in the 
NCADAC DFO's office by May 16, 2011 to provide sufficient time for 
NCADAC review. Written comments received by the NCADAC DFO after May 
16, 2011, will be distributed to the NCADAC, but may not be reviewed 
prior to the meeting date.
