The Obama administration released this week its final plan for translating the National Ocean Policy into action.

The plan focuses on improving coordination to speed federal permitting decisions; better managing ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources; developing and disseminating scientific information that local communities, industries and decision-makers can use; and collaborating more effectively with state, tribal and local partners, marine industries and other stakeholders.

“This plan embodies the type of efficient, collaborative government that taxpayers, communities and businesses expect from their federal government,” Nancy Sutley, chairwoman of the Council on Environmental Quality and co-chairwoman of the National Ocean Council, said in a statement.

“With increasing demands on our ocean, we must improve how we work together, share information and plan smartly to grow our economy, keep our ocean healthy and enjoy the highest benefits from our ocean resources, now and in the future.”
