Climate Action Planning

The Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS), is a set of tools and a collaboration of all 20 incorporated cities and the County in climate action planning and implementation. The SMCEW team convenes with agency staff in order to collaborate and exchange ideas and share climate action planning resources.

The purpose of the RICAPS initiative is to assist the 21 local jurisdictions in developing and implementing climate action plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions countywide and meet statewide GHG reduction goals which include: 15% below 2005 levels by 2020 and 40% below 2005 levels by 2030.
