The Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan (SDCP) addresses long-term conservation needs of a full range of Pima County's natural and cultural resources. Many SDCP initiatives have been implemented, including a major update of the County’s Comprehensive Plan, land protection priorities, purchase and lease of open space, and ranch and cultural conservation.
Sacramento County, California is developing a Climate Action Plan (CAP) in two phases. Phase 1 is intended to provide a framework on how to manage climate change impacts, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and manage resources in the county. Phase 2 is still in development and will consist of an implementation plan including both mitigation and adaptation actions.
