BACKGROUND.

ORD research programs are structured to understand environmental problems and inform sustainable solutions to meet EPA’s strategic goals. The research programs comprise six program areas: Air, Climate, and Energy; Safe and Sustainable Water Resources; Sustainable and Healthy Communities; Chemical Safety for Sustainability; Human Health Risk Assessment; and Homeland Security.

ORD requested that the SAB work jointly with the ORD Board of Scientific Councilors (BOSC) to provide advice to inform the agency’s development of new Strategic Research Action Plans for these programs to cover the period 2016-2019.
