EPA Seeks Comment on Draft Climate Change Adaptation Implementation Plans
In February 2013, EPA published its draft Agency Climate Change Adaptation Plan in response to the President's October 2009
Executive Order (E.O. 13514 - "Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance") and the March 2011 "Implementing Instructions to all Federal Department and Agencies." EPA's Program and Regional Offices have produced draft Climate Change Adaptation Implementation Plans that provide more detail on how they will carry out the work called for in the Agency-wide Plan. Public review drafts--one for each of EPA's ten Regions and seven National Programs - are now available
for a 60-day public review and comment period.
The public should respond to the EPA with comment via the public
docket no later than January 3, 2014.
