Group on International Research and Cooperation
White House announced on 19 July 2001 that the U.S. and Italy have agreed
to undertake joint research on climate change. As the first step in developing
such cooperation, science program managers from both countries met in
Rome on the 22nd and 23rd of January 2002. The objectives of this initial
interaction with our Italian counterparts were to identify, first, specific
scientific areas in which joint research is needed; and second, specific
actions to develop such research and a timetable for these. It was agreed
in July that cooperation would be undertaken within four broad areas:
global and regional climate modeling; atmospheric studies related to climate;
carbon cycle research; and low carbon technologies.
