The Science Action Agenda (SAA) is a four-year science agenda for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta that prioritizes and aligns science actions to inform management decisions, identifies major gaps in knowledge, promotes collaborative science, and builds science infrastructure. The SAA is part of the collaboratively developed Delta Science Strategy led by the Delta Science Program.
The planning process to update the SAA is underway. Like the 2017-2021 iteration, the 2022-2026 SAA will be organized by management needs and will identify the major science actions needed in order for the science enterprise to be responsive to those needs. Generation of the 2022-2026 SAA will stem from a broad list of management questions to ensure science actions inform policy and management. A public workshop was held on September 29, 2020 to refine the list of top management questions.
