Climate Change Planning and Action

Fairfax County is proactively working to address climate change and its various impacts, primarily through two separate initiatives. The Community-wide Energy and Climate Action Plan (CECAP) is focused on developing goals, and implementing strategies and actions that will reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted in Fairfax County. 

Complementing the CECAP is Resilient Fairfax, an initiative which will encompass the development of a comprehensive Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan for the county and the community as well as the implementation of strategies to reduce risk to county residents, businesses, and infrastructure. More information on these plans, their component parts and participants is available below.
