The Task Force on the Environment was established in August 1998 to assist the Foundation in defining the scope of its role with respect to environmental research, education, and assessment, and in determining the best means of implementing activities related to this area (NSB-98-161). The Task Force was discharged May 4, 2000.

The Task Force was charged with:

Reviewing the scope of current NSF activities related to research, education, and assessment on the environment;
Developing guidance for the National Science Foundation at the policy level that will be used for designing an appropriate portfolio of activities, consistent with the overall NSTC strategy, the goals of the 1995 NSF Strategic Plan (NSF 95-24, NSF in a Changing World), and activities of other agencies and organizations that support related programs.
