Document Description
The proposed project is the adoption of a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) and associated minor amendments to the General Plan Safety Element to recognize climate impacts and incorporate climate adaptation and resiliency strategies. The proposed CAAP is a comprehensive planning document outlining the City’s proposed approach both to address climate impacts on Long Beach and to reduce Long Beach’s impact on the climate by reducing future GHG emissions. The proposed CAAP provides a framework to reduce the City's GHG footprint (climate action) and ensure the community and physical assets are better protected from the impacts of climate change (climate adaptation). The vision of the proposed CAAP is to create a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable city by addressing climate change in a way that remedies existing environmental health disparities while also improving health, quality of life, and enhancing economic vitality throughout Long Beach. The proposed CAAP includes a roadmap for implementing new polices, programs, incentives, requirements, projects, and initiatives in the immediate future, as well as longer-term actions that will need to be studied further while monitoring how the climate continues to change and evaluating the effectiveness of actions taken. Proposed updates to the Safety Element will incorporate climate adaptation and resiliency considerations and strategies associated with the CAAP.
