Preparing for the Future Through Science and Technology: An Agenda for
Environmental and Natural Resource Research is a progress report on an
interagency plan that focuses the federal R & D funds on the enhanced
emphasis in the research and budget planning cycles of the CENR federal
agencies with environment and natural resources research:

Ecosystem Research - to promote the efficient use of natural resources
while sustaining ecosystem integrity for future generations.
Observations and Data Management - to ensure that the necessary
measurements are made efficiently and that the data are widely available
to all stakeholders in easily usable forms.

Socioeconomic Dimensions of Environmental Change - to understand the
underlying human influences on the environment and the potential
responses of society to change.

Environmental Technology - to protect the environment while stimulating
economic growth and capturing emerging global markets.
Science Policy Tools - to improve integrated assessment and risk models
so policymakers can make informed decisions on complex environmental and
societal issues.
