Project Summary/Overview

In addition to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from infrastructure and equipment, the Department of the Interior is also taking adaptation measures. One such example is the creation of a department-wide strategy to address climate change. A 2009 Secretarial Order called for the creation of an Energy and Climate Change Council that would oversee the establishment of eight regional Climate Science Centers and 21 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives.

Project Summary/Overview

The Washington Department of Natural Resources is incorporating climate change adaptation strategies into its internal activities; one effort to achieve this was the creation of an adaptation strategy for the Department’s Aquatic Resources Program. This strategy recommended that DNR build its adaptive capacity and take near-and-long-term actions to incorporate climate change into its activities; in addition, DNR is cooperating with other state agencies in the formulation of a statewide adaptation plan.

Project Summary/Overview

Maine has just begun the process of building adaptation into its climate change framework. The state has been involved in mitigation activities since 2004 and the Legislature directed the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to develop adaptation recommendations in 2009. The recommendations span the built, natural, coastal, and social environments and have been passed on to the State Legislature as of February 2010.
