This may include:

  • Working with regional collaboratives
  • Bridging the gap between urban and rural communities on climate change
  • Addressing resource issues faced by upstream communities and their downstream counterparts related to air quality, forest health, water resources, and flood resilience
  • Compiling Climate Action Plan strategies from small and rural communities
