Gateway Cities Council of Governments Climate Action Planning Framework



Gateway Cities Council of Governments




The Gateway Cities Council of Governments (COG) prepared a regional Climate Action Planning Framework to assist jurisdictions in developing a local Climate Action Plan (CAP) to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and prepare for climate change impacts. Development of the CAP Framework was funded by a Local Government Challenge grant from the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission), and a Sustainability Planning Grant from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The project launched in August 2017 and was completed in December 2018. The project deliverables are accessible via the CAP Framework Dashboard and include the following tools and resources: Individual Community GHG Inventories, GHG Reduction Measure Toolkit, Emission Reduction Measure Templates, Adaptation Toolkit, Public Engagement Toolkit, Model Climate Action Plan Template, Guidance on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Funding.
