Sonoma County Regional Climate Protection Authority
Efficient buildings, clean energy, alternative transportation and conservation/adaptation.
The Regional Climate Protection Authority, RCPA, was formed in 2009 to coordinate countywide climate protection efforts among Sonoma County’s nine cities and multiple agencies. The RCPA fosters collaboration, helps to set goals, pools resources, formalizes partnerships, and works across silos. The RCPA aims to create local solutions to complement State, Federal, and private sector actions – all showing that a better future with lower emissions is possible.
In 2014, the RCPA and the local governments of Sonoma County were designated as Climate Action Champions by the White House, in recognition of outstanding leadership in climate action demonstrated within and across each of the nine local cities, the County of Sonoma, and the regional agency partners.
Local climate change is already happening, and causing hotter, drier weather with longer summers, more variable rain, and rising sea level and storm surge.
