Lessons Learned Quarterly Report, June 2009

Welcome to the 59th quarterly report on lessons learned in the NEPA process. We are pleased to feature the DOE NCO meeting and the NAEP annual conference, where streamlining the NEPA process for Recovery Act projects and consideration of climate change in NEPA documents were both addressed. We’ve begun to follow up on suggestions from the NCO meeting (below). Thank you for your continuing support of the Lessons Learned program. As always, we welcome your suggestions for improvement.
