White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) : Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force
|Name||White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) : Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force|
|Project Purpose||In 2009, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) initiated the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force, which includes representatives from more than 20 Federal Agencies. When the President signed the Executive Order on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, on October 5, 2009, he called on the Task Force to develop, within one year, Federal recommendations for adapting to climate change impacts both domestically and internationally. The Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force formed workgroups to consider the capabilities of the Federal Government to respond to the impacts of climate change on various critical sectors, institutions, and agency mission responsibilities. The Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force workgroups have hosted twenty listening sessions with key stakeholders and experts. The listening sessions are designed to engage the expertise and recommendations of external organizations into the workgroup deliberations early in this review process. In October 2010, the Task Force will report to the President on the development of domestic and international dimensions of a U.S. approach to climate change adaptation and what Federal Agencies are doing to support this effort. The Task Force also will recommend additional aspects to consider in the development of a comprehensive national strategy.|
