  • Alternative Title:
    Report to the NOAA Science Advisory Board
  • Description:
    "NOAA conducts world class research and development ( R&D ) that is critical to the Nation's security, economic growth, and environmental health. The importance of NOAA R&D will expand in the future as coastal and ocean resources and weather and climate information become even more strategically important to the economy and as American lives, property, and critical infrastructure are increasingly exposed to the impacts of extreme weather and changing climate and coastal conditions. Given today's fiscal realities, NOAA now requires an R&D portfolio that is more sharply focused on key areas essential to supporting its services to the Nation. NOAA can continue to meet its service and stewardship mandates only if it significantly changes the management of its R&D portfolio and is given the flexibility to allocate its R&D budget to its highest priorities, as specified in the Next Generation Strategic Plan. NOAA's capability to set R&D priorities and to focus research on those priority areas must be strengthened"--executive summary.
