Location  Online / Virtual

Upcoming Webinar:
Next Steps in New York's Climate Leadership: The Draft Scoping Plan
Register via Webex for Thursday, May 5, 2022, 2:00-3:00 p.m.

New York State's nation-leading climate agenda is the most aggressive climate and clean energy initiative in the nation, calling for an orderly and just transition to clean energy that creates jobs, fosters a green economy, and focuses on climate justice. The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) of 2019 places New York on a path to achieve its mandate of a zero-emission electricity sector by 2040, including 70 percent renewable energy use by 2030, and to reach economy-wide carbon neutrality by 2050.

The Climate Action Council is responsible for developing the scoping plan to achieve the required reductions. The Council released its draft scoping plan on December 30, 2021, kicking off a public comment period that will extend to June 10, 2022. The Council must finalize the scoping plan by the end of 2022, and DEC must promulgate regulations to implement the final plan by 2024.

Maureen Leddy will describe the statutory requirements, the process of developing the draft scoping plan and opportunities to provide input to the final plan. The presentation will include an overview of the various strategies recommended by the Council to achieve the required greenhouse gas reductions, with a focus on strategies related to land use, and recommendations related to climate change adaptation for ecosystems.

Speaker: Maureen Leddy, Director, DEC Office of Climate Change

 

About the Conservation and Land Use Webinar Series:

The Hudson River Estuary Conservation and Land Use Webinar Series was developed to provide a foundation in conservation and land use planning for members of Hudson Valley conservation advisory councils and boards. In addition, environmental commissions, members of planning and zoning boards, elected officials, and interested citizens may find these programs of interest. Webinars provide background about regional biodiversity, conservation principles, best planning practices, and tools to identify and conserve important habitat and water resources.

Webinar attendees will receive an email from Webex confirming attendance, which may submitted locally for municipal planning or zoning board training credit. An archive of past webinars is available at https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/120539.html.
