This page provides downloads of the draft update to the Puget Sound Action Agenda and Biennial Science Workplan. The Action Agenda is presented in two sections. Section 1 is an executive summary overview of priority work for the next two years. Section 2 contains the details about how recovery targets were set, strategies and action development, the role of science, climate change, and the strategies, ongoing programs, and near-term actions and their performance measures, plus the 11 local profiles and their related strategic priorities and actions. The Biennial Science Workplan contains strategies and actions to support the Action Agenda.
This draft represents an almost year-long effort on the part of hundreds of experts from Tribal governments, state and federal agencies, local jurisdictions and governments, academia, business interests, environmental interests and non-governmental organizations, and concerned residents of the Puget Sound region.
It is a significant improvement over the previous Action Agenda – with new recovery targets, a more robust set of strategies and clearer, more measurable actions, explicit inclusion of local priorities and actions, a clearer scientific basis, and a new approach at distinguishing the work of ongoing programs.
At the same time, we know there is room, and need, for continued refinement. We ask that you give it a critical review – the recovery plan for Puget Sound has to serve multiple needs and many saudiences, and we need your input to balance all those interests as effectively as possible.
As you review, we ask that you pay particular attention to:
