Initiated in 1989, the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) was mandated by Congress in the Global Change Research Act of 1990 (GCRA)to “to assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict and respond to human‐induced and natural process of global change." The GCRA was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush in November 1990.
