Climate Action Plan (CAP) Status
(San Diego Jurisdictions, 2017)
In 2017, Coronado, Santee and El Cajon began developing climate action plans (CAP) while Chula Vista and Solana Beach updated their CAPs. In early 2018, La Mesa passed a CAP and the County of San Diego adopted its own CAP, although it has faced criticism for primarily relying on achieving GHG reductions through purchasing carbon credits. Currently, eleven jurisdictions have adopted CAPs, seven jurisdictions are updating or developing their CAPs and one jurisdiction has not committed to developing a plan.
