to manage its impacts. Many
communities can't just get up and
move or rebuild when a climate
disaster
strikes. In many cases,
these are the same communities
dealing with a legacy of pollution
in their communities.
The Department of the Interior
supports the administration's commitment
to tackle the climate crisis
and put climate justice at the center
of its mission. We have pledged
to use the best-available science to
take concrete steps to adapt to and
mitigate climate change impacts,
and [we] are working to ensure
the integrity of federal decision
making, as well as coordinate appropriate
and proactive responses
to impacts on public lands and
waters, wildlife, cultural resources,
and Tribal resources and interests.
We are doing our part to help the
[United States] meet our goals to
tackle the climate crisis, including
reducing
greenhouse gas emissions,
producing carbon-pollution
free power, and reaching net-zero
emissions economy-wide by 2050.
P&R: How does your
department plan to support and
protect the sovereignty of Tribal
Nations? What might that mean
in terms of current policies?
Secretary Haaland: The Department
believes that we can best serve
Indigenous peoples when Tribal
governments are empowered

such as climate change; Tribal

lead their own communities, and
when federal officials speak with
and listen to Tribal leaders in formulating
policies that affect Tribal
Nations. This has been incredibly
important for us as we engage in
nation-to-nation consultation.
We aren't just here to listen; we
are here to implement what we are
learning. Through land consolidation
and land buy-back programs,
Tribes have the opportunity
to
make decisions about economic
development,
restore balance to
nature, seek environmental justice,

President Biden has
stated that he wants to retool
and relaunch the Civilian
Conservation Corps (CCC).
Given today's climate change
crisis, the racial reckoning,
and the needs of our evolving
workforce, what could " CCC
2.0 " look like?
Secretary Haaland: The President's
Build Back Better Agenda
includes historic investments
to mobilize the next generation
of conservation and resilience
workers through the Civilian
Climate Corps (CCC). The CCC
will put a new, diverse generation
of Americans to work conserving
our public lands and waters,
bolstering community resilience,
and advancing environmental
justice - all while placing goodpaying
union jobs within reach for
more Americans. The CCC is an
important jobs initiative that draws
on America's
strength
to work
together and build back better to
revitalize public lands, infrastructure
and communities. It will leverage
the skills of young adults, veterans,
Tribes, and folks from underserved
and marginalized communities
to help advance this vision. The
