Department of Defense 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap   [open pdf - 2MB]

"Climate change will affect the Department of Defense's ability to defend the Nation and poses immediate risks to U.S. national security. The Department is responding to climate change in two ways: adaptation, or efforts to plan for the changes that are occurring or expected to occur; and mitigation, or efforts that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap (Roadmap ) focuses on the Department's climate change adaptation activities. The Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) articulates the Department's sustainability vision to maintain our ability to operate into the future without decline in the mission or the supporting natural and man‐made systems. The actions set forth in this Roadmap will increase the Department's resilience to the impacts of climate change, which is a key part of fulfilling this vision ."
