Southeast Equity and Environmental Justice Implementation Plan
NOAA Fisheries is working to advance equity and environmental justice through our marine conservation and management work in the Southeast.
In May 2023, NOAA Fisheries finalized its first-ever national Equity and Environmental Justice Strategy. The national strategy describes the path the agency will take to incorporate equity and environmental justice into the vital services the agency provides to all communities. NOAA Fisheries needs your help operationalizing the national strategy in the Southeast Region of the United States.
Request for Information
Through September 30, 2023, NOAA Fisheries requests your input on specific actions and related performance metrics to incorporate into our Southeast Equity and Environmental Justice Implementation Plan. In addition to submitting written suggestions through the online portal, you can provide verbal comments during a webinar-based listening session on September 28, 2023. The webinar-based listening session will be available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
The public input we receive in response to this Request for Information will inform the development of a Southeast Equity and Environmental Justice (EEJ) Implementation Plan that is specific and responsive to the needs of underserved communities in the U.S. Caribbean, South Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico. NOAA Fisheries will supplement the information we receive in response to this Request for Information with information we obtain through a series of focus group meetings we are conducting with underserved community members and liaisons throughout the region.
