A Climate Action Plan for Maine 2004

December 1, 2004

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection wrote the Climate Action Plan to meet the requirements of a state law passed in 2003 (PL 237). This was a first step by Maine towards meeting emissions reductions targets they committed to as part of a resolution by New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers. The plan concludes with fifty-four recommended actions required to ensure legislative targets are met. While the Climate Action Plan is focused on mitigation, many of the potential options for reducing emissions related to agriculture and forestry offer some adaptive co-benefits.
