  • DHS Climate Literacy Strategy

    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 everchanging 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.
