Let’s Keep Moving 2036 - Alaska Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan

December 2016

From the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, Let’s Keep Moving 2036 provides the overall policy guidance for regional and area planning of long-range transportation (highways, aviation, transit, rail, marine, bicycle, and pedestrian) in the state of Alaska. The plan includes goals, policies, and actions which inform statewide transportation programs and investments through the year 2036. It is based on technical analyses of four key trends, including climate change, that will have the greatest effect on the transportation system - which represents the government’s largest capital investment in the state.

USFWS Polar Bear Conservation Management Plan

January 9, 2017

The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Polar Bear Conservation Management Plan was developed as a guide to polar bear conservation in the U. S. , and calls for decisive action to address Arctic warming and protect polar bears from the impacts of climate change. This plan outlines conservation and adaptation strategies for the USFWS and agency partners to support the recovery of polar bears, while articulating the need to lower greenhouse gas levels to ultimately protect the survival of the species.

U.S. Department of Defense Arctic Strategy

November 22, 2013

The Department of Defense (DoD/Department) Arctic Strategy outlines the American military's role in carrying out the National Strategy for the Arctic Region, including maintaining peace and security in a region severely impacted by climate change. The Strategy explains how the DoD will promote security, stewardship, and international cooperation in the Arctic, where the intended “end-state” for this strategy is: “a secure and stable region where U. S. national interests are safeguarded, the U.

Climate Adaptation and Action Plan for the Norton Bay Watershed, Alaska

December 2013

This plan was developed by the Norton Bay Inter-Tribal Watershed Council (NBITWC) to address climate stressors, risks, and adaptation opportunities for tribal villages in the Norton Bay. NBITWC conducts research, education, and advocacy to protect and restore water resources toward tribal interests. The Council represents four Inupiat Eskimo native villages in the Bay, which is located within the Seward Peninsula in northwestern Alaska. The plan includes an economic analysis and forest and water resources assessments, focusing on the restoration of traditional knowledge as a primary adaptation strategy.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game Climate Change Strategy

November 2010

Recognizing the impacts of climate change, a Climate Change Sub-Cabinet was formed in 2007 to inform the Office of the Governor of Alaska, and to prepare a comprehensive climate change strategy for the state. As part of this effort, each state agency was asked to identify how climate change impacts may affect its ability to meet its mission. Because a changing climate is anticipated to affect the sustainability of Alaska’s fish and wildlife resources and their uses, it is of interest to the department to assess the likely effects of climate change on fish and wildlife and their uses and to develop adaptation strategies to address these effects.

Climate Adaptation Priorities for the Western States: Scoping Report

June 2010

The Western Governors Association's Climate Adaptation Work Group's first task was to develop this scoping report in an effort to identify state and regional priorities for planning and adapting to a changing climate. Three specific goals were identified for further discussion: 1) foster coordination on adaptation activities, particularly between state and federal efforts; 2) identify key science needs for Western states; and 3) begin to share smart practices among states. This report focuses on priority actions that could help states adequately plan for and improve resiliency to a changing climate.

A Summary of the Alaskan Marine Arctic Conservation Action Plan

April 2010

The Alaska chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has developed a Conservation Action Plan (CAP) using TNC's CAP methodology.   The plan covers coastal, nearshore, and marine environments of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas - including pelagic and benthic habitats, the continental shelf and ocean basins, lagoons and marshes, islands, and the shoreline - within the Exclusive Economic Zone of Alaska. Climate change and its effects are identified as the primary threats to natural resources of ecological and cultural importance in the region.
