Actions & Assessment

The Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan includes a list of communitywide actions that aim to lower greenhouse gas emissions and help the region progress towards its adopted reduction targets. An initial list of actions was developed over the summer of 2019 with input from subject matter experts and public comments. In order to identify these actions. The Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan used a Multicriteria Analysis to rank and prioritize communitywide actions. Input was generated from the consultant team, key stakeholders, and technical experts to qualitatively assess how each action could address the goals of the project, including the potential for each action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This input was used to assemble the list of recommended actions included in the plan draft. The project used a Scenario Analysis Tool to assess the cumulative ability of recommended actions to reduce our regional emissions and identify the "mix" of actions best suited to meet community priorities.
