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 a Climate Adaptation and Resilience Plan, which we anticipate beginning in late 2020. This plan will identify and address risks as well as areas of concern within the county that are likely to be burdened with the impacts of a changing climate in years to come. More information on these plans, their component parts and participants is available below.
