How the plan was developed

The development of the climate action plan included multiple phases:

  • Phase 1: Research and assessment on climate change impacts and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Phase 2: Develop goals and strategies
  • Phase 3: Review, build support, and seek approval
  • 2021 and beyond: Seek and facilitate partnerships to accomplish the work

Staff from every line of business in the county were engaged in work teams to develop goals and strategies. A disparities reduction lens was applied to each of the brainstormed strategies.

The county’s approach to engagement began with internal coordination and commitment. It then expanded to include public entity and community group partners, and then residents and businesses more broadly.
