Strategic Plan and Focus Areas

2021 Strategic Plan Cover

SERRPAS is guided by a Strategic Plan that highlights topics of mutual interest for the SERPPAS partners (focus areas) and measurable and achievable goals (objectives) that will help the partnership advance its mission across the region. The plan serves as a framework for identifying and implementing collaborative and cooperative solutions to various challenges affecting national defense, natural resources, economic sustainability, and the quality of life in the Southeast region. The plan is organized by five focus areas, each supported by collaborative work groups. The work groups identify priority actions to accomplish the objectives in the plan.
