The FY2000 Annual Report of the Science Advisory Board (SAB) Staff highlights a number of examples in which the SAB has helped to make science real through innovative actions, broadened scope of science, and new approaches to transmitting advice. These examples range from the completion of its long-awaited Integrated Environmental Decision-making project and joint activities with other Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) committees, to a new SAB seminar series on the human side of environmental protection and a series of cooperative workshops with the Agency aimed at improving benefits analysis. Played out against a backdrop of a highly productive year (55 meetings, 37 reports) in which several contentious issues were addressed (e.g., children and cancer, as well as data derived from human testing), these instances of the realization of science stand out and hold significant promise for the future.
