U.S. Ocean Climate Action Plan Request for Information

October 4, 2022

Dear Colleague,
Today, the Ocean Policy Committee released a Request for Information regarding the development of a U.S. Ocean Climate Action Plan (OCAP) that will help guide and coordinate actions by the Federal government and civil society to address ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes-based mitigation and adaptation solutions to climate change. The OCAP will summarize planned Federal ocean-based climate action and the benefits of these actions, identify gaps in knowledge and application of knowledge to emerging ocean-climate issues, and recommend actions to advance the effectiveness of the Nation's response to the impacts of climate change. The input received will be used to inform the development of the OCAP.
Responses are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on November 18, 2022.
Interested individuals and organizations should submit comments electronically to and include “RFI Response: OCAP” in the subject line of the email.
See the Federal Register Notice for more details.
Thank you,
Jim McManus
