Climate Action and Adaptation Plan

Douglas County is finalizing a plan to mitigate our greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The plan is designed to meet our community’s priorities, account for our assets and vulnerabilities, and recommend short and long-term policies and program development to respond to the realities of a changing climate.

After a six-week public comment period in late 2023, a draft of Adapt Douglas County is in its final phase of revision. Staff anticipate bringing the final plan forward for adoption in May 2024. To view the fall draft and learn about the plan development process, please visit our project StoryMap below.
