NCEI’s six Regional Climate Services Directors (RCSDs) regularly engage with stakeholders about climate information needs, and help build and strengthen active partner networks with public and private constituents. They help to connect and integrate NOAA’s work with partner organizations that develop and deliver climate services at the regional level, including the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment programs, Regional Climate Centers, state climatologists, the National Integrated Drought Information System as well as other agencies, institutions, and organizations. These efforts increase the value of climate information to users and support more efficient, cost-effective delivery of products and services.
NCEI is committed to meeting the needs of our regional partners and users. While we work through our hiring processes to bring in permanent RCSDs for the Western, Southern, and Alaska regions, we have assigned interim RCSDs.
