Mitigation Framework: Guiding Principles

Note: This particular conversation topic is closed. Thank you for your ideas, comments and votes. You can contribute to our open Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8) conversations -- they are listed in the left column of the page under "Active Campaigns."

The ideas we received so far were helpful in shaping the document and will also be considered as we continue to forge ahead in meeting the remaining milestones under PPD-8. To learn more about the status of PPD-8 efforts, visit We appreciate your involvement.

We're moving along with the development of the National Mitigation Framework and we recently drafted the framework’s guiding principles. These principles capture basic mitigation values, and will help shape framework development and implementation.
