The release of the President’s Climate Action Plan (PCAP) in June 2013, and Executive Order (EO) 13653, Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change, in November 2013, brought with them new requirements for agencies to improve climate change preparedness and resilience. Among these are requirements to engage in partnering and information sharing to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of adaptation planning and implementation. This comparison of 2014 Adaptation Plans was undertaken to provide USACE staff with information about other agency climate preparedness and resilience actions to facilitate partnering and information sharing, identify actions taken by agencies with aligned missions and operations that could be useful to us, and support a gap analysis to guide future actions. It is not intended to be a comprehensive comparison, rather an information resource to combine with other more detailed data. This report has two components: a compilation of individual agency adaptation plan highlights and a crosswalk between the USACE 2014 Adaptation Plan and the 37 other Adaptation Plans submitted in 2014.
