CAP Luncheon: Intersection of Climate & Air Quality (September 2021)

At the Cleaner Air Partnership’s September 2021 *Virtual* Quarterly Luncheon, attendees learned about the intersection of air quality and climate change, with a focus on local Climate Action Plans and connectivity to the 2022 CARB Scoping Plan update. We had a great lineup of experts with diverse perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for local action that address both climate and air quality inequities. CAP events are an opportunity to learn about important air quality topics affecting the Sacramento region.
