Nevada Climate Initiative Releases State Climate Strategy
It’s a new era for climate action in Nevada. On December 1, the Nevada Climate Initiative released the State Climate Strategy, a foundational resource providing a roadmap for the Silver State to accelerate climate action necessary to achieve Nevada’s climate goals and capture the health and economic benefits of the clean energy and technology revolution. The effects of climate change continue to compound every day in Nevada, impacting our collective public health, threatening our natural resources, and challenging the vibrancy of our communities and economy. The Strategy establishes a framework to advance a healthy, sustainable, climate-resilient future for all Nevadans – especially our most disadvantaged community members who live in the areas experiencing the greatest climate-related health and economic impacts. Co-led by the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy, the Strategy is the product of extensive collaboration across state agencies and working groups, combined with robust input from thousands of Nevadans across the state. As a living document, the Strategy will be adapted and updated as the impacts of climate change evolve and new climate-friendly technologies become available.
