NOAA Education’s Fiscal Year 2022 Accomplishments Report was published on January 31, 2023. The report is divided into sections, each detailing different aspects of NOAA education program’s achievements. There were many climate-related projects that merited recognition in the report, several of which the CEE Division contributed to. Most climate accomplishments were highlighted in two sections of the report: Goal 3: Ready, Responsive, Resilient and Goal 5: Organizational Excellence. These recognitions include:
- The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness (CLEAN) Network’s website redesign
