Exploring the Whole-of-Government Approach to Climate Change with Joe Bonfiglio.
President Biden’s announcement during the first week of his young Presidency that he would marshal the entire federal government to combat climate change head-on took many by surprise. But in the earliest months of the Biden Administration, we are starting to see this directive in action. The EPA and the State Department have ramped up their engagement, as expected, but we’re also seeing plans emerge from the Department of Transportation, a reinvigorated CEQ and a robust staff of experts driving the agenda in the White House itself. Roughly, six months in, we’ll look at how these efforts are going, explore ways in which Capitol Hill is being helpful (or not) and take stock of the politics of climate change.
Joe Bonfiglio is President of EDF Action, a leading advocacy and political nonprofit, focused on driving climate progress in the U.S.
This event is a collaboration with COFFE (Council of Former Federal Executives & Associates).
