This OAH Action Plan was developed in recognition of the OAH impacts that we see today, in the hopes of minimizing the impacts for tomorrow, and altering the trajectory of ocean changes for future generations. Because Oregon is one of the first states to feel the impacts of OAH, it is our intent that the OAH Action Plan will contain actions that are meaningful locally, and in fighting the global challenges of climate and ocean changes.  Additionally, the Action Plan will serve as a model for others to apply to their own geographical and political context. Once adopted by Governor Brown, the Action Plan will guide Oregon’s efforts and become Oregon’s submission to the International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification, and thus will be shared with the region and world.
