The U.S. Department of Defense Releases its Climate Adaptation Plan  

Today, the U.S. Federal Government released Climate Adaptation Plans from all of its agencies.

The Department of Defense (DoD) plan can be found here, as well as a statement from Secretary of Defense Austin and the DoD press release.  It’s an impressive successor to the 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap, and its ambition reflects the tone of this Administration – a tone set within its first week when President Biden signed Executive Order 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.

See a more detailed assessment in this Defense One op-ed on the new strategy, by the Center for Climate and Security’s John Conger.

Stay tuned for more on other agency plans covering climate security.
