City of San Rafael, California Climate Change Action Plan (April 2009)

The City of San Rafael's Climate Change Action Plan describes the city's current efforts and recommendations to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. Mayor Al Boro was one of the initial signers of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Projection Agreement in 2005, pledging that the city will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol. To meet these goals, the City Council appointed a 16-member Green Ribbon Committee to lead a community process to prepare a plan to guide both the city organization and the entire community in responding to climate change. This Plan is the result of that community effort. 

While focused primarily on mitigation, specific adaptation recommendations include recommendations for adapting to sea-level rise, participating in the Marin regional vulnerability assessment, and creating a local vulnerability assessment.
