We help the region prepare for climate change by providing services, resources, and expertise to our member municipalities. Our goal is to help communities reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate. We're primarily focused on supporting work related to clean transportation, coastal resilience, and municipal climate action planning.
