Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: And private sector entities with ocean interests, would also be created to ensure a formal structure for nonfederal input on ocean and coastal policy matters. A small Office of Ocean Policy would provide staff support. The Commission recommends that this structure be established immediately by Congress. Pending congressional action, the President should put this structure in place through an Executive Order. Strengthened Federal Agency Structure Improved federal coordination is necessary, but not sufficient to bring about the depth of change needed to modernize our ocean governance system. As part of the new National Ocean Policy Framework, the existing federal agency structure should be made less redundant, more effective, and better suited to an ecosystembased management approach. As an initial step, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) should be reconfigured and strengthened to better enable it to execute its many ocean- and coastalrelated responsibilities. The second step will be consolidation of overlapping ocean and coastal programs where appropriate. Over the long-term, more fundamental changes to the federal agency structure will be needed that recognize the links among the ocean, land, and air and that support a unified approach to resource use and conservation.
