climate change air quality


Climate Change & Air Quality
  • Burning fossil fuels release both:
  • Heat trapping greenhouse gases
  • Air pollutants responsible for:
        • Smog,
        • Health problems
        • Reduce visibility
        • Diminished quality of life
iclei s cities for climate protection ccp campaign
ICLEI’s Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) Campaign
  • Largest ICLEI program
  • Over 700 participants worldwide
  • 160 participants in U.S. = 19% of U.S. GHG emissions
results from us ccp participants
Results from US CCP Participants

Cumulative local actions have a positive impact on global climate change.

  • 23 million tons of eCO2 reduced
  • $535 million saved in fuel costs
  • 4 million MWh of electricity savings
  • 74 million gallons of gasoline savings
project approach
Project Approach
  • Step 1 – Project Start-Up
  • Step 2 – Inventories
  • Step 3 – Forecast Emissions
  • Step 4 – Reduction Strategies/Control Measures
  • Step 5 – Identify a GHG Emission Target
  • Step 6 – Formulate and Approve Local Action Plan
  • Step 7 – Criteria Air Pollutant (CAP) Analysis Formulate Milestones 3, 4 & 5 Strategy
step 1 project start up
Step 1 – Project Start-Up
  • Identification of project team participants
    • Technical team
    • Advisory committee
  • Review of background information
  • Kick-off meeting
step 2 inventories
Step 2 - Inventories

A 2002 inventory will be developed, which will include:

  • Corporate and community emissions
  • Greenhouse gas and criteria air contaminant emissions
  • Emissions resulting from energy consumption and solid waste decomposition
steps 3 forecast emissions
Steps 3 – Forecast Emissions
  • A forecast of GHG and CAP emissions will be developed for 2030
  • Projections are based on growth indicators (e.g. number of employees, population, and etc.)
  • Forecast provides a benchmark for emissions against which planning decisions will be made
step 4 reduction strategies control measures
Step 4 – Reduction Strategies/Control Measures
  • Advisory committee will identify and quantify historic and existing measures
  • Advisory committee will assemble in workshop to brainstorm potential new mitigation measures
  • ICLEI will facilitate workshop and bring knowledge of best practices and lessons learned by other communities
step 6 formulate and approve local action plan
Step 6 – Formulate and Approve Local Action Plan
  • Form, implement & monitor Local Action Plan
  • Identify partners – internal & external
  • Define roles & responsibilities
  • Formulate timeline
  • Establish budget
  • Design reporting process
  • Adoption by Council and Board of County Commissioners
step 7 cap analysis
Step 7 – CAP Analysis
  • To be undertaken in conjunction with GHG analysis
  • To ensure GHG mitigation strategies are congruent, and where possible, enhance air quality goals
  • To enhance achievement of goals outlined in DCHC 2030 LRTP
relationship of local action plan to other undertakings
Relationship of Local Action Plan to Other Undertakings

role of advisory committee
Role of Advisory Committee
  • Provide information for inventory and forecast development, where necessary and possible
  • Share knowledge of existing mitigation measures
  • Participate in the identification and selection of new mitigation measures for the community sector
  • Review draft inventory results, forecasts and local action plans and provide feedback for improvement
  • Champion the implementation of the local action plan and wherever possible, demonstrate leadership in mitigation
