Alaska Climate Change Action Plan Recommendations to the Governor

Climate Action for Alaska Leadership Team
Created: 9/20/2021 -

Abstract

The Climate Action Leadership Team’s (CALT) Climate Change Action Plan is a compilation of numerous ideas drawn from team members, public comment, and the expert and technical panels convened under the CALT’s auspices. This is not a consensus document, though there was broad agreement on many of the recommendations. It does provide potential pathways for the State to consider when implementing the State’s climate change strategy. Recommendations should be interpreted not as prescriptive, but as a suite of options to inform agency efforts.

This action plan aims to provide a comprehensive approach that strikes a balance between aspirational goals and feasible implementation. As a draft submitted to the Governor in September 2018, the Climate Change Action Plan will continue to elicit public feedback, agency input, and, ultimately administration and legislative decisions.
