Local governments are taking action on climate change, but we all need to do more. We recognize that it takes the actions of many to accelerate our response on climate change -- to both prepare for and adapt to the changes we won't avoid, and to lower our GHG emissions. This website provides just some examples of community initiatives in this region and further around the world.
