DOI Secretarial Order 3226, Amendment No. 1 (Jan 2009)
In 2007, a Climate Change Task Force was created within the Department of the Interior (DOI) to study climate change and its effects on the responsibilities of the Department. The Task Force included three subcommittees that developed options for actions DOI should consider with respect to legal and policy issues, land and water management issues, and climate change scientific issues. This Amendment to the Order provides guidance to bureaus and offices within the DOI on how to provide leadership by developing timely responses to these emerging climate change issues.
This Order replaces Secretarial Order No. 3226 (“Evaluating Climate Change Impacts in Management Planning,” January 19, 2001). This order was then replaced by DOI Secretarial Order 3289 on February 2010.
