Through adoption of its award-winning Climate Action and Resiliency Plan in 2019, Alameda has set an ambitious goal of reducing emissions by 50% below 2005 levels by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral as soon as possible. The CARP charts a course to achieve this goal through equitable improvements to transportation, buildings, energy use, and waste management.

Climate Adaptation and Hazard Mitigation Plan

Alameda is updating its Climate Adaptation and Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan:

  • describes the natural and climate hazards that impact Alameda's people, buildings, businesses and asset;
  • identifies our vulnerability to those hazards, and;

The plan addresses the hazards of earthquakes, floods, sea level/groundwater rise, tsunamis, heat, smoke, PSPS outages, drought, and dam failure inundation.
