|Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP)|
The City of Long Beach is developing its first-ever Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP), and we want you to be a part of the process. The CAAP will help to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, prepare the community for the impacts of climate change, improve the quality of life, and enhance economic vitality in Long Beach. Long Beach strives to be a more sustainable and resilient city in the face of climate change impacts such as air pollution, extreme heat, drought, coastal storm surge, and sea level rise. View the CAAP Video and get involved now!
The CAAP will provide a framework for creating or updating policies, programs, practices, and incentives for Long Beach residents and businesses to reduce the City's GHG footprint, and ensure the community and physical assets are better protected from the impacts of climate change. Engaging those who live, work, and play in Long Beach is essential to creating an effective and successful CAAP. Residents, business owners, students, and other community stakeholders are encouraged to get involved by providing input and sharing ideas, priorities, and solutions to help establish and achieve the City's climate goals.
We want to hear from you. Take the CAAP survey to provide your opinions, experiences, and priorities as we work together to develop an actionable and meaningful CAAP for Long Beach. View the CAAP Video and get involved now!
