Rising Tides: Charting Maryland's New Climate Change Path
Hosted by MACo's Planners Affiliate
While Maryland is on track to reach its previous greenhouse gas reduction goals of 25% by 2025, the State recently set a new goal of 40% by 2030. The Maryland Commission on Climate Change is now considering what mitigation actions need to be taken to reach the 40% goal (and even surpass it). Additionally, the Commission is also determining what land use and adaptation strategies should be taken to address the current and pending effects of climate change, such as flooding and severe weather. Many of these policies will have direct consequences for counties. Panelists will discuss pending mitigation and adaptation strategies for climate change and offer their views on how Maryland and the counties should be confronting this issue.
