Climate Change Action Plan

Climate Change Action Plan

The Commission is developing its first Climate Change Action Plan, a guide to climate change adaptation and mitigation in the National Scenic Area. 

The Gorge Commission is developing a plan to build climate change resilience for the scenic, natural, cultural, and recreation resources of the National Scenic Area. The Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) will identify specific actions the Commission can take to adapt to a changing climate and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Gorge.

The Commission identified the need for a climate action plan during the Gorge 2020 Management Plan update and included a new Climate Change chapter in the approved Plan.
