Maryland's people, natural resources, public lands, and public investments are increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate  change. The Department of Natural Resources has the lead role among State agencies in advancing the scientific understanding of Maryland's vulnerability to climate change, and in advocating for sound planning to avoid or minimize the anticipated effects of climate change. Through implementation of this policy, the Department will guide its own actions,  and will lead by example, encouraging our sister agencies and local government leaders to plan for and to mitigate the effects of climate change.
