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 also contributes 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.
