National Space Weather Strategy and Action Plan Released

National Space Weather Strategy and Action Plan Released
published: Thursday, March 09, 2017 17:14 UTC

Today, OSTP Director John Holdren announced the release of the National Space Weather Strategy and the National Space Weather Action Plan. These two documents were developed by an interagency group of experts, with input from stakeholders outside the Federal government, to clearly articulate how the Federal government will work to enhance national space-weather preparedness by coordinating, integrating, and expanding existing policy efforts; engaging a broad range of sectors; and collaborating with international counterparts. The Strategy identifies goals and establishes the guiding principles that will guide these efforts in both the near and long term, while the Action Plan identifies specific activities, outcomes, and timelines that the Federal government will pursue accordingly. The Action Plan broadly aligns with investments proposed in the President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2016 and will be reevaluated and updated within 3 years of the date of publication or as needed.  For more information, please see the full release at: https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2015/10/28/enhancing-national-preparedness-space-weather-events
