Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability (LARC)
The Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability (LARC) is an association of Southern California's leading municipal governments, utilities, agencies, universities and organizations. The purpose of this collaboration is to share information, foster partnerships, and develop system-wide strategies to address climate change and promote a green economy through sustainable communities.
At the end of 2016, LARC completed a county-wide climate action plan, "A Greater L.A.: Climate Action Framework," that offers both mitigation and adaptation measures. This effort was a multi-year process to integrate numerous county-wide and jurisdiction specific efforts with best practices and model ordinances that ensure a resilient and vibrant future for our communities. This regional climate action plan is intended to integrate all of the climate plans from cities in the region, and more regional efforts, to create a unifying effort that will allow individual cities, communities, and agencies to implement their own appropriate sustainability efforts. The plan includes action-oriented strategies, coordinated planning, cutting-edge science, inclusiveness, and measurable objectives to produce sustainable communities.
LARC supports and sponsors collaborative workshops, grant applications, and interactions between individual entities to share information. Also, the Collaborative has quarterly public meetings on topics in climate change and sustainability. These Quarterly Meetings are hosted by different members and not only provide an update on regional activities, but also offer the opportunity to learn more about a particular subject that can be applied in Southern California communities.
