Help Update the County’s Climate Action Plan

Contra Costa County is updating its Climate Action Plan, which outlines the actions the County will take to address our changing climate. We expect the updated Climate Action Plan to be complete in late 2022. In the meantime, we'll be focusing our work in a few key areas.
