How Can We Help You?


In collaboration with the University of Alaska, the Municipality of Anchorage is creating a Climate Action Plan that will focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for the impacts of climate change.

What is a Climate Action Plan?

A strategic framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change. Cities utilize climate action plans as roadmaps for achieving emissions reductions and improving community resilience.

The Anchorage Climate Action Plan (CAP) will take into account community-wide greenhouse gas emissions, projected climate impacts, and the priorities and concerns of Anchorage residents. The CAP will prioritize actions that result in substantial economic, environmental, and community benefits.

Development of the Anchorage Climate Action Plan is funded by the University of Alaska and the UAA Center for Community Engagement & Learning.
