FEMA Restores Climate Goal In Strategic Plan After Trump Dropped It

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is once again considering climate change in its strategic planning after a plan released during the Trump administration did not include it.

FEMA, the country’s disaster preparedness agency, made resilience to climate change one of the three main goals of its new strategic plan for the years 2022 through 2026 released on Thursday.

The new plan calls for the agency to build an understanding of climate science and use it to help make communities resistant to the damage it can cause.

This stands in stark contrast to the agency’s plan for 2018 through 2022, released during the Trump administration, which doesn’t have a single mention of climate change."
