The 2022-2026 Action Agenda is our community’s shared plan to advance Puget Sound recovery over the next four years.
Puget Sound is a special place that nourishes our health, economy, environment, and quality of life. Nestled around the Olympic and Cascade mountains, it encompasses the southern half of the Salish Sea.
Tribal nations have stewarded these lands and waters and fished, hunted, cultivated, and gathered throughout the region since time immemorial. Its snowcapped mountains and sparkling waters continue to attract people and businesses from around the world.
Though it may appear pristine from a distance, Puget Sound is in serious trouble. Our orca and salmon are at risk. We’re continuing to see habitat loss in forests and shorelines. We are not meeting our tribal nations’ treaty and sovereign rights, and many communities face health risks, economic challenges, and loss of traditions. Finally, climate change and unplanned-for population growth threaten species, our infrastructure, and our livelihoods.
The 2022-2026 Action Agenda is our community’s shared plan to address these challenges and advance Puget Sound recovery over the next four years. With bold leadership and collaboration at all levels, coordinating our efforts, and acting urgently, Puget Sound can be a resilient ecosystem that supports healthy and diverse human communities and the habitats and species that we care about.
The Action Agenda describes what we must achieve, how we will achieve it, and how we will hold ourselves accountable to ensure we make progress.
As our community’s recovery plan for Puget Sound, the Action Agenda outlines, in detail, what we must do to achieve a resilient Puget Sound. It’s up to all of us who treasure this special place to commit to the necessary work. Together we can create a resilient Puget Sound. You can find more information about the Action Agenda here.
