This past year may be one of the most costly years for extreme weather events attributed to climate change. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is looking at how the government is approaching climate resilience – the plans and preparations for climate hazards.

  • Alfredo Gomez, GAO director of natural resources and environment issues, said his team believes the Department of Transportation can do a better job to make sure states use allocated funds to build climate-resilient roads.
  • GAO recommended the Department of Energy develop a department-wide strategy for resilience of the electricity grid, which is vulnerable to weather disaster impacts, and issued a similar recommendation to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said Gomez.
  • Gomez said government organizations issued about 20 climate adaptation and resilience plans this past October in response to executive orders.
