Report: NASA/NOAA/OSTP Climate data user study

Many groups — including federal agencies, state and municipal governments, private-sector organizations, and educational groups — should use climate-change information in their planning and long-range decision making. In January of 2016 and building on the work of several federal studies on climate information, 18F was commissioned to investigate the behaviors and patterns of climate-change planning and make recommendations for how the federal government could make its climate-change data easier to use and act upon.

18F conducted interviews and prototype tests with municipal analysts, science translators, and private-sector planners. 18F identified ways the federal government could encourage them to incorporate climate change data into their planning processes.
