DRAFT DHS Section 106 Agreement for Climate Resilience and Sustainability Undertakings on DHS-Owned Assets
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has drafted a proposed NPA in coordination with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, and is soliciting comments from the public for 45 days which must be received no later than October 30, 2023.
The Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) enhances preparedness across communities at the local, state, territorial, and tribal levels by supporting federal homeland security Component agencies, public safety officials, and first responders on a national scale.
This rapid review used a systematic approach to examine the available literature on rehabilitation and reintegration (R&R) programs for women and children returning from contexts of violent extremism, examining common assumptions, inputs, activities and outcomes across diverse settings.
This practical guidance is a resource for mental health and psychosocial practitioners seeking to support women and children exiting violent extremist conflict. It introduces common areas of need and provides resources for addressing these needs within the context of mental health and psychosocial service delivery. In addition, this guidance document encourages a phased approach to service delivery in accordance with the 5R framework. For more information on the 5R framework, please see "Supporting women and children returning from violent extremist contexts: Proposing a 5R framework to inform program and policy development".
The objective of this Climate Literacy Strategy is to develop a climate literate DHS workforce, ensuring all employees across the Department have a sufficient and up-to-date understanding of climate change and its relevance to the DHS mission. This understanding ensures we are better prepared to execute our mission in ever-changing conditions while successfully implementing the executive orders, administrative directives, and regulations relevant to climate change. DHS will do this by supporting climate literacy development and initiatives throughout the Department and being a source of climate change information. Within climate literacy there are many topics including, but not limited to, climate science literacy and climate security literacy. This strategy will evolve to educate the DHS workforce on all topics as necessary. As a starting point, we define climate literacy at DHS as an educated layman’s understanding of the (non-technical) basics of climate, climate change, and climate change’s implications for DHS.
Addressing the climate emergency is a priority for DHS as sea-level rise, extreme weather events, workforce health, and other direct and indirect impacts of climate change will affect the Nation’s preparedness and national security over the long term. To combat this ongoing threat, DHS is implementing new approaches for climate change adaptation, mitigation, and resilient capacity.
