The North American Carbon Program (NACP) Science Implementation Plan (NSIP) Draft is now available for public input. The NACP Science Implementation Plan aims to chart a course for the next decade and beyond, guiding the work of the NACP as a whole by updating our strategy and laying plans to translate it into practice. Getting broad input from the NACP community is key to the NSIP's development and impact.
