Transportation and Climate Change Clearinghouse
Many states and local government are setting greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals through legislation, regulation, and other policies. States and regional coalitions are developing climate action plans to identify and evaluate feasible policies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of public and private sector policies and programs. With growing interest in climate change, transportation decision makers are facing increased public emphasis on the relationship between transportation and climate change. In response, transportation agencies and planning organizations are increasingly integrating climate change impacts into transportation decision making.
Resources and information about climate action plans and examples of specific actions that states are taking to lower their greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.
Reports and studies that address how State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), transit agencies, and other transportation organizations are including climate change considerations in transportation decision making, including their specific approaches to integrating considerations of climate change impacts into transportation planning and decision making.
