Facilities Management for a Changing Climate: A Policy Primer

Overview

The National Park Service (NPS) is dedicated to the protection of natural and cultural resources at over four hundred park units across the United States. Within these parks, the NPS must also manage the largest number of constructed assets of any civilian agency in the federal government, including a range of structures, maintained landscapes, trails, and utility systems. Facilities managers play a critical role in successfully managing this wide portfolio of assets through the effects of a changing climate.

This training session orients facilities managers to existing policies that guide NPS climate change response actions. Participants learn how to recognize opportunities to meaningfully reduce our contribution to green house house gas emissions and adapt our facilities to a changing climate. Particular focus is paid to cultural resources, mitigation efforts, and coastal facilities.
