A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
The Office of Policy Analysis (PPA) helps coordinate Department-wide climate change adaptation activities, facilitating implementation of the Department's Climate Change Adaptation Policy, the Climate Resilience Goal under the Department's Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan and compliance with climate-related Executive Orders.
PPA developed the principles outlined in the Department's Climate Change Adaptation Policy and has worked collaboratively with the bureaus to incorporate the guidance into programs and operations. The full policy can be downloaded here.
PPA is also contributing to interagency efforts to provide scientific tools, information, and expertise to help people manage their climate-related risks and opportunities, and improve their resilience to extreme events.
