Public Comment Information: The Montana Climate Assessment (MCA) invites all stakeholders to engage with the draft of its first assessment report (MCA1) through the public comment process, which is now live! Public comment is an opportunity for the community to provide input and feedback to the draft report before it is finalized for publication. The MCA1 draft for public comment will be undergoing external peer review simultaneously with the public comment period, and therefore will not yet be peer reviewed. The MCA team welcomes comments from the public on the content of the draft report with regard to its clarity, extensiveness, and usefulness. Comments from the public on the draft MCA1 report will be accepted electronically through the end of the comment period which closes at close of business on May 5, 2017.
Overview: An assessment of Montana’s climate is currently underway to describe past and future climate trends that affect different sectors of the State’s economy. The Montana Climate Assessment (MCA) project involves university researchers, decision makers, and other stakeholders with the goal of providing timely and relevant information for the citizens of the State. The first assessment, available in 2017, will focus on climate issues that affect agriculture, forests, and water resources in Montana.
