Interior to Invest in Climate Resiliency in Territories

Funding will support evaluations of water levels and extreme weather.

Officials from the Department of the Interior have announced that $12 million has been allocated to four territories of the United States to improve their climate resiliency. Island communities are generally more vulnerable to rising seawater and extreme weather than other regions. This funding will support measuring seawater temperatures, implementing anti-erosion technology, and mitigating flooding in the territory areas.   

“The Investing in America agenda presents an important opportunity for the territories in their efforts to plan for, mitigate the effects of, and build resiliency against climate change,” said Assistant Secretary for Insular and International Affairs Carmen Cantor. “These investments will support our work to foster stable and sustainable island communities, as we partner with territorial governments to build climate resilient communities.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Cantor as she oversees the investment in climate resiliency for U.S. territories.
  • For Secretary Haaland to be led by the Lord as she heads the Department of the Interior.
  • For Interior Department officials as they try to equip the island communities fot extreme weather events.
