The Coast Guard announced in the Federal Register a request for input from the public on specific Coast Guard programs, regulations, policies, and procedures that the Coast Guard should consider changing to combat and respond to climate change.
This information will help the Coast Guard effectively achieve its missions in a manner that advances the Administration’s urgent priorities of climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience. The Coast Guard is seeking this input to ensure that the service is implementing programs, policies, and activities that address (1) the cumulative effects of environmental damage, above all from climate change and (2) the disproportionately high, adverse climate-related impacts on disadvantaged communities, while also promoting a safe, secure, and resilient marine transportation system that facilitates commerce and secures national security interests.
