National Aeronautics and Space Administration 2021 Climate Adaptation Plan   [open pdf - 7MB]

Alternate Title: NASA Climate Action Plan (September 2021)

From the Purpose: "The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) mission is to drive advances in science, technology, aeronautics, and space exploration to enhance knowledge, education, innovation, economic vitality, and stewardship of Earth. This Climate Action Plan (CAP) provides NASA's vision for adapting to climate change effects on its mission, facilities, infrastructure, natural lands, and other assets, now and in the future. The CAP builds on the Agency's efforts, beginning in 2005, when 'regional climate variability' was identified in NASA's risk management framework as a threat to operations and missions. This CAP identifies opportunities to further incorporate consideration of climate risk into management functions and other processes to prioritize those risks and apply resources. The CAP addresses co-benefits related to climate change mitigation."
