The Climate and Environment Team works to advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s climate, environmental justice, and nature priorities so that all communities have access to and opportunities to help create a healthy, prosperous, resilient, and sustainable future. The Climate and Environment Team strives to:
- Provide clear, useful, and useable science and knowledge to inform the Administration’s climate, environment, and nature policies, actions and initiatives by engaging across the Federal community as the clear voice of science, coordinating relevant science and policy processes, collaborating with partners, and connecting with stakeholders outside of government on issues related to climate and environment;
- Ensure the Federal Government is a source of credible, useful, science-based information on climate, nature, and the environment;
- Advance equity and inclusion, including through respectful and thoughtful engagement and the development of knowledge and science-based policies and processes that enhance equity, environmental justice, and opportunities for all.
The team is led by Dr. Jane Lubchenco, OSTP’s Deputy Director for Climate and Environment.
