President Biden has issued an executive order that directs the creation of an office within the State Department that will support multilateral and bilateral engagement to help the U.S. advance efforts to address the global climate crisis. 

The secretary of the State Department will select a director for the climate change support office (CCSO), which will support executive departments and agencies in spearheading diplomatic engagement on climate change, the White House said Friday.

CCSO will also ensure the integration of climate change into U.S. decision processes for foreign policymaking and exercise climate leadership in international fora.

The newly created office will also back other efforts that seek to address clean energy, sustainable development, ocean, shipping, migration and the Artic.
