This document introduces key health connections to climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, suggestions of where these fit into a CAP, a process for forging partnerships between planning and health organizations, and links to data that can help planners identify and reference the existing health status of their jurisdiction. It also provides a number of examples of CAP strategies that integrate public health objectives, and health departments and community-based organizations that are making efforts to improve community health and reduce GHG emissions. This document is intended for people from varied agencies such as planning, public works, city manager or mayor’s offices, sustainability offices, public health and community groups that are working together to develop a Climate Action Plan.
