BER CESD Changes Name

In April 2020, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science underwent an organizational change that included updating the name of the Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) within the Office of Biological and Environmental Research. The division’s new name is the Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD). No changes were made to the names or scope of the division’s scientific programs.

For more information about this division, see the EESSD Strategic Plan. Note that while the CESD name remains throughout the text, the document still reflects EESSD’s mission, vision, scientific grand challenge topics, and implementation strategy.
