NOAA Strategic Plan in 5 minutes
Transcript of NOAA Strategic Plan in 5 minutes
To understand and predict changes in
climate, weather, oceans, and coasts...
To share that knowledge and
information with others, and...
To conserve and manage coastal and
marine ecosystems and resources
Resilient Ecosystems, Communities, and Economies
Healthy ecosystems, communities, and economies...
that are resilient in the face of change
Society is prepared for and responds to weather-related events
Marine fisheries, habitats, and biodiversity are sustained within healthy and productive ecosystems
Resilient Coastal Communities and Economies:
Coastal and Great Lakes communities are environmentally and economically sustainable
Climate Adaptation and Mitigation:
An informed society anticipating and responding to climate and its impacts
NOAA’s mission of science, service, and stewardship is directed to a particular vision of the future.
Resilient human communities and economies maintain or improve their health and vitality over time by:
adapting to change.
To this end, NOAA will focus on four long-term goals.
These are goals that cannot be achieved without the Agency conducting its mission.
NOAA’s mission statement summarizes the Agency’s fundamental responsibilities.
The objectives identified here are the basis for NOAA's planning, performance management, and stakeholder engagement over the next five years.
Objectives are outcomes NOAA can achieve on the path to its long-term goals...
and toward a more capable, flexible enterprise.
Improved scientific understanding of the changing climate system and its impacts
Assessments of current and future states of the climate system that identify potential impacts and inform science, service, and stewardship decisions
Mitigation and adaptation choices supported by sustained, reliable, and timely climate services
A climate-literate public that understands its vulnerabilities to a changing climate and makes informed decisions
Reduced loss of life, property, and disruption from high-impact events
Improved freshwater resource management
Improved transportation efficiency and safety
Healthy people and communities due to improved air and water quality services
A more productive and efficient economy through environmental information relevant to key sectors of the U.S. economy
Improved understanding of ecosystems to inform resource management decisions
Recovered and healthy marine and coastal species
Healthy habitats that sustain resilient and thriving marine resources and communities
Sustainable fisheries and safe seafood for healthy populations and vibrant communities
Resilient coastal communities that can adapt to the impacts of hazards and climate change
Comprehensive ocean and coastal planning and management
Safe, efficient and environmentally sound marine transportation
Improved coastal water quality supporting human health and coastal ecosystem services
Safe, environmentally sound Arctic access and resource management
NOAA’s Next Generation Strategic Plan emerged from extensive consultations with NOAA employees and our stakeholders.
It is intended to facilitate...
Well-reasoned, transparent decision-making and investment choices based on priorities
Alignment of requirements for resources with requirements for products and services
Monitoring the effectiveness of outputs in contributing to societal outcomes
Common understanding of roles, responsibilities, and the meaning of “success”
Enterprise-wide capabilities are required to achieve NOAA’s strategic goals.
Science & Technology
Organization & Administration
NOAA’s long-term scientific and technical challenge:
Develop and apply holistic, integrated Earth system approaches
to understand the processes that connect changes in
the atmosphere, ocean, space, land surface, and cryosphere
with ecosystems, organisms, and humans over different scales.
Science and Technology Objectives:
A holistic understanding of the Earth system through research
Accurate and reliable data from sustained and integrated Earth observing systems
An integrated environmental modeling system
Often, the best way for NOAA to meet stakeholder needs is to deliver its data, information, and knowledge to those who have not yet accessed it.
NOAA must understand these needs at all levels—within the U.S. and abroad—and respond to them.
An engaged and educated public with an improved capacity to make scientifically informed environmental decisions
Integrated services meeting the evolving demands of regional stakeholders
Full and effective use of international partnerships and policy leadership to achieve NOAA’s mission objectives
Effective management ensures that core competencies are used most effectively and final services have the greatest impact.
NOAA’s managerial efforts provide the rest of the Agency with the staff, the infrastructure, and the financial capital needed to get the job done.
Organization & Administration Objectives:
Diverse and constantly evolving capabilities in NOAA’s workforce
A modern IT infrastructure for a scientific enterprise
Modern, safe, and sustainable facilities
A high-performing organization with integrated, efficient, and effective business systems and management processes
Resilient communities and institutions derive goods from ecosystems in a way that does not compromise ecosystem integrity,
yet is economically feasible and socially just for future generations.
