Climate Action Plan (CAP)

A Climate Action Plan (CAP) is a framework of strategies intended to guide efforts for climate change mitigation. More specifically, a climate action plan is a detailed and strategic framework (ecosystem) for measuring, planning, and reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and related climatic impacts. It can be scoped and carried at any of a wide range of geographic or government levels: national, regional, cities or even neighborhoods or eco-districts.  No less, such an action plan can be carried out by and at the levels of large or smaller companies, employers, cultural centers and events, schools and universities, and even families or individuals.

As an example: Municipalities design and utilize climate action plans as customized road maps for making informed decisions and understanding where and how to achieve the largest and most cost-effective emissions reductions that are in alignment with other municipal goals. Climate action plans, at a minimum, include an inventory of existing emissions, explicit reduction goals, targets, and timetables, and analyzed and prioritized reduction actions. Ideally, a climate action plan also includes an implementation strategy that identifies required resources and funding mechanisms.

This is a list of hot-linked climate change initiatives of international, national, regional, and local political initiatives to take action on climate change (global warming).  It is in its present state pretty rough and ready, but at least it gives us a starting place. (Continuously updated of course).

Wikipedia Checklist of Key Terms, Concepts and References for the New Mobility Transition

library shelf books highlight

Intended as a research aid, checklist and reminder for students, researchers and others digging into the Five Percent Solutions and related technical and policy challenges.
