A Dedicated Team

Established in 2010, the National Park Service Climate Change Response Program (CCRP) advances efforts to address the effects of climate change across the breadth of the National Park System. The Program works across directorates and program areas to support parks through technical expertise and research, guidance and training, project and planning support, and provision of communication products. The Program works with other agencies, organizations, and stakeholder groups—nationally and internationally—to maximize information sharing, support, learning, and project effectiveness.
