State Innovation on Climate Change: Reducing Emissions from Key Sectors While Preparing for a “New Normal” (GCC)
From the Georgetown Climate Center (GCC), this Harvard Law and Policy Review article describes innovative actions being taken by states to encourage mitigation and adaptation. The paper explains that some states have taken on a leadership role in adaptation and mitigation in the absence of federal drivers. The adaptation section of the paper (beginning on page 415), provides an overview of the state’s role in encouraging adaptation at the local level and in taking steps to integrate adaptation in state planning, programs, and asset management.
