DEM Strategic Plan FY2024-2026

DEM has developed a plan with eight strategic goals to guide us over the next several years. This strategic plan aligns with the goals of RI 2030 and builds on DEM’s work to protect our environment, steward and promote our state’s natural resources, and counter the effects of climate change. A core focus of this strategic plan is prioritizing diversity, inclusion, and environmental justice across all programs in the department. This plan outlines a clear direction for us to achieve our mission as we continue to grow, innovate, and improve as a department.
