DoD Releases 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap
By DoD News - October-December 2014
The Department of Defense released its 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap, which focuses on various actions and planning the DoD is taking to increase its resilience to the impacts of climate change. "Among the future trends that will impact our national security is climate change," said Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. "Rising global temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, climbing sea levels, and more extreme weather events will intensify the challenges of global instability, hunger, poverty and conflict. By taking a proactive, flexible approach to assessment, analysis, and adaptation, the Defense Department will keep pace with a changing climate, minimize its impacts on our missions, and continue to protect our national security." The 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap, which was released Oct. 13, is available publicly at http://www.acq.osd.mil/ie/download/CCARprint.pdf.
