Brookings – Accelerating City Climate Planning and Action in an Era of Historic Federal Investment

On Tuesday, September 27, Brookings Metro will host an event to examine how city leaders can accelerate climate planning and action in the current era of historic federal investment. The event will build off the Brookings Metro report, “Not according to plan: Exploring gaps in city climate planning and the need for regional action,” which analyzes the implementation potential of 50 different city climate plans. In addition to a presentation of the report’s major findings, the event will feature remarks from federal leaders on challenges and opportunities to advance climate action across the country, and a panel of local leaders discussing needs around goal setting, strategy execution, funding projects, and expanding equity.
