Reducing Climate Impacts to DoD Installations
Richard G. Kidd IV
DASD (Environment & Energy Resilience)
The Department of Defense (DoD) will improve and expand assessments of the effects of extreme weather and climate change to produce actionable information on military installation vulnerability. Specific targets are: expand the DoD Climate Assessment Tool (DCAT) to all major DoD installations by April 2023, conduct Black Start Exercises for 50% of the priority mission assurance installations by September 2024, issue climate related policy and guidance by September 2024, and complete “all hazards” installation resilience plans for major installations by September 2024.
