Joint Comments on Federal Agency Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plans

Policy Integrity joined other members of the Initiative on Climate Risk and Resilience Law to file comments on the Federal Climate Adaptation Plans recently issued as part of the Biden Administration's Whole-of-Government approach to climate change. Our comments recognize the importance of those plans' issuance and recommend further steps to ensure that federal agencies' approaches to adaptation reflect rigor, transparency, and coherence with respect to other climate-related objectives.

We attached the following articles to our comments:
