Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP)
Since 1985, the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) has been a recognized world leader in climate and air quality policy and is the only independent, nonprofit think tank working exclusively on those issues at the local, U.S. national and international levels. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., CCAP helps policy-makers around the world develop, promote and implement innovative, market-based solutions to major climate, air quality and energy problems that balance both environmental and economic interests.
Current CCAP climate and air quality initiatives worldwide include:
- Multi-stakeholder dialogues
- Education and outreach
- Qualitative and quantitative research
- Technical analyses of emission mitigation and climate adaptation options
- Policy solutions and recommendations development
Some notable recent reports from CCAP include, “Ask the Climate Question: Adapting to Climate Change Impacts in Urban Regions,” “The Value of Green Infrastructure for Urban Climate Adaptation,” and “Lessons Learned on Local Climate Adaptation." CCAP’s new program and blog, 'Weathering Climate Risks' addresses corporate and urban climate preparedness, emphasizing risk management, critical infrastructure and the economics of adaptation.
