NOAA Exercises International Leadership


Earth map

The NOAA Strategic Plan recognizes International Leadership as a priority cross-cut. A world with rapidly shifting political, cultural, and economic dynamics requires Federal agencies involved in world affairs to cultivate fresh approaches and new services to maintain U.S. leadership. Internationally, NOAA supports and promotes national policies and interests in ecosystem-based management, climate change, Earth observation, and weather forecasting and will seek to maximize the mutual benefits of international exchange with its global partners.
