The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) owns or manages approximately one trillion dollars of real property comprised of billions of square feet of built facilities and millions of acres around the globe. As a result, it is uniquely situated within the federal government as being both globally distributed, locally managed, and, given the austere location of many installations, particularly sensitive to the impacts of climate change. This session will report on research efforts to continue to develop an understanding of the challenges and tools to manage DoD's built and natural infrastructure, an infrastructure critical for the maintenance and improvement of DoD capabilities.
