In November 2010, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game released its Climate Change Strategy, describing the potential impacts of climate change and outlining an approach to statewide adaptation. As part of the effort to prepare a comprehensive climate change strategy for Alaska, each state agency was asked to identify how a changing climate may affect its ability to meet its mission. The Department of Fish and Game’s Climate Change Strategy will be presented to Alaska’s Climate Change Sub-Cabinet, which was formed in 2007 to advise the governor on climate change strategy. The Department of Fish and Game’s Climate Change Strategy focuses on identifying both expected climate impacts and areas where research is needed to specify likely impacts.It highlights management principles, key strategies, and initial actions needed in order to appropriately address climate change.
