2012 Highlights of Progress: Responses to Climate Change by the National Water Program   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The National Water Program at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] released the 'National Water Program 2012 Strategy: Response to Climate Change' (2012 'Strategy') in December 2012 as an update to an initial climate change and water strategy released in 2008. The 2012 'Strategy' describes long-term goals for the management of sustainable water resources for future generations in light of climate change and is intended to be a roadmap to guide future programmatic planning and inform decision makers during the Agency's annual planning process. [...] The final completion and publication of the updated Strategy was the principal climate change accomplishment of the National Water Program in 2012. Also during 2012, EPA's national water programs and regional water programs continued work to implement a range of climate change response actions called for in the 2008 'Strategy' and updated in the new 2012 'Strategy'. This '2012 Highlights of Progress' report provides a summary of the major accomplishments of the EPA national water programs and regional water programs in 2012."
