The North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) has established a priority in the 2009 - 2013 Strategic Plan to respond to climate change using both mitigation and adaptation strategies to reduce vulnerability, increase adaptive capacity and improve resiliency of climate-sensitive resources.

This team is developing a focused approach to address climate change policy actions at state, regional and federal levels, while coordinating strategies with other state, federal and nongovernmental partners.
