Resilient Atlanta: Actions to Build an Equitable Future

Resilient Atlanta includes a comprehensive and actionable set of Visions, Targets, and Actions that addresses the region’s most pressing stresses and seeks to build capacity among residents and city systems alike to better withstand future shocks. The Strategy is organized into four leading Visions which reflect residents’ and stakeholders’ aspirations for Atlanta’s future. We have set Targets supported by Actions that detail specific programs and policies to realize each Vision:

City of Everett Climate Action Plan

Global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are changing the climate in ways that threaten the vitality, livability, and prosperity of the Everett community. The City of Everett is projected to encounter changes in temperature, precipitation, rain and snowfall, sea level, and flooding frequency. These changes will exacerbate existing concerns and introduce new challenges to Everett’s natural resources, economy, infrastructure, and quality of life.

The mission of the Department of Public Health is to protect and promote the health of all Philadelphians and to provide a safety net for the most vulnerable.

Thurston Climate Adaptation Plan: Climate Resilience Actions for Thurston County and South Puget Sound

The Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) prepared the Thurston Climate Adaptation Plan — which recommends actions to help Thurston County and the broader South Puget Sound region prepare for and adjust to adverse climate change impacts (adaptation) and bolster resilience. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided a National Estuary Program grant for the project. The Washington Department of Commerce administered the funding, and TRPC hired Thurston County and Earth Economics as subcontractors.

Climate Action Plan: Skagit County, Washington

The Skagit County Commissioners understand that Climate Change is an immediate problem that needs tackling at the local level. They have established a Taskforce to recommend suitable strategies. In creating these recommendations, the Taskforce is mindful that Skagit County government has no direct control over climate pollution from transportation and electricity generation. Statewide, such sources constitute two-thirds of the problem, and the County should strongly support state and federal mandates to tackle these major issues.

Climate Action Plan: Port Townsend/Jefferson County, Washington

This Climate Action Plan is a product of the Climate Action Committee (CAC), which was appointed by the Port Townsend City Council and Jefferson County Commissioners in 2007. The council and commission set a goal of reducing county-wide carbon-based emissions to 80% lower than 1990 levels by the year 2050. This document begins to address the immense challenge required to attain that goal.
