In October 2014, the Obama Administration released its Priority Agenda for Enhancing the Climate Resilience of America’s Natural Resources, which provides high level policy guidance that will shape the priorities and actions of Federal agencies responsible for natural resources management. The Agenda is a first of its kind, comprehensive commitment by 7 agencies (DOI, NOAA, USDA, USACE, EPA, FEMA & DOD) that recognizes the role natural resources play in both preparing for climate change and managing for carbon. It fulfills Presidential direction provided in the Executive Order on Climate Preparedness and is responsive to stakeholder input, including advice and recommendations of the President’s State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience; and envisions an important role for the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plant Climate Adaptation Strategy that was released in 2013.
