The U.S. Global Change Research Program is expected to release the first-ever U.S. National Nature Assessment in 2026.

The National Nature Assessment will draw on expertise from the Federal Government, Indigenous communities, academia, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. The Assessment team will hold an array of public engagement opportunities to ensure the report answers questions that are important to every American’s life, and is informed by the best available evidence. Public comments are open through March 31, 2023.
