EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) has requested the Science Advisory Board (SAB) to provide advice on EPA's Draft Sustainability Research Strategy and multi-year research plan. The SAB will review the strategy, which proposes a scientific framework for "a more systematic and holistic approach to environmental protection that takes into consideration the complex nature of environmental issues and the welfare of future generations," and the multi-year research plan, which describes ORD's research to meet the short-term and long-term goals of the Research Strategy.
