Plan approved by AGI Government Affairs Program
Advisory Committee, Executive Committee, and Member Society Council.
The Government Affairs Program Advisory Committee provides scientific and technical advice to AGI based on Member Society concerns and input. AGI uses this advice to provide
information on issues of importance to Member Societies to policymakers, to the geoscience
community and to the public.
Priority issues include the following, however, the Government Affairs Program also works on other issues as needed.
- Support geoscience education and research, including adequate
federal investment at all education levels;
- Improve geoscience investment in public policy issues including
data preservation and access, energy and resources, the environment,
natural hazards, public lands, and public health;
- Establish strategic alliances with other scientific disciplines,
the private sector, government, international organizations,
and other non-governmental organizations.
