Georgetown Climate Center advances climate, energy, and transportation policies in the United States, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help communities adapt to climate change. The Center serves as a national facilitator and convener of states that are leading or have demonstrated the potential to lead on emission reductions and power companies. It conducts focused meetings on climate policies to identify key technical questions and challenges; develops educational and analytical materials on policy compliance solutions; presents in forums and venues; and supports states with public and media engagement. Using this approach, Georgetown provided input from the states to the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency to inform the development of the final Clean Power Plan. This award allows the Center to support the implementation of the Clean Power Plan by working with states to develop effective plans for reducing carbon pollution from the power sector.

This grant will allow GCC to expand and maintain the functionality of its Adaptation Clearinghouse, an online resource for policymakers, resource managers, and academics working to improve climate adaptation. The grant will also support an expansion of GCC’s work to track the implementation of state adaptation plans.
