Climate change is widely regarded as among the most challenging environmental issues ever faced by humanity. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is working to enhance its climate services by creating a comprehensive and coordinated approach to providing information to support adaptation and mitigation of climate change and its impacts, including those important for human life and coastal/marine ecosystems. NOAA has recently published a report entitled, "A Vision for Climate Services in NOAA," (available at www.climate.noaa.gov/pdf/ GandPdocumentOct21.pdf) that provides a set of goals and principles for these services from the view of a group of NOAA scientists and related experts. Below is an abridged version of this document, with particular emphasis on ecosystem and fisheries considerations.
