NCAT's Energy Corps members assist rural communities in assessing climate vulnerability, conduct GHG inventories, and prepare climate action plans encompassing mitigation, adaptation and resilience. Through these efforts in local communities with local NGOs, local governments and school districts, we also Communicate and Engage diverse stakeholders at the community level.
