Implementation Framework for the National Strategy for the Arctic Region [Appendix A] [open pdf - 590KB]
"Since the publication of the 2013 National Strategy for the Arctic Region (Strategy), the United States has demonstrated a commitment to leadership in adapting to changing Arctic conditions. Climate change is exerting diverse and accelerating impacts on the Arctic, on the people who live there, and on related societal, environmental, economic, and security issues. Accordingly, the U.S. Government must periodically review its actions to ensure they are appropriately prioritized to advance U.S. interests. This document supersedes the 2014 Implementation Plan for the National Strategy for the Arctic Region (Implementation Plan), putting forward an updated Implementation Framework for the National Strategy for the Arctic Region (Framework) to ensure that U.S. efforts successfully address all three lines of effort from the Strategy: 1. Advancing United States Security Interests, 2. Pursuing Responsible Arctic Region Stewardship, and 3. Strengthening International Cooperation."
