The San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative was highlighted in the Georgetown Climate Center report, "Lessons in Regional Resilience." This report is part of a series of six case studies that explore lessons that are being learned by climate collaboratives from around the United States that are bringing together local governments and other stakeholders at the regional level to both reduce carbon pollution (mitigation) and prepare for the impacts of climate change (adaptation). These case studies explore the following collaboratives:
Each case study explores the history and development, structure and decision making methods, funding sources, roles and initiatives of each of these climate collaboratives. A synthesis report also explores lessons that can be learned by comparing the efforts of each collaborative on climate policy in their regions. The Climate Science Alliance was recognized in the San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative case study for furthering climate-related goals through innovative partnerships and initiatives.
