Owner/Client: County of Napa
Ascent is working with County of Napa staff on the preparation of a comprehensive climate action plan (CAP) for the unincorporated area of Napa County. The CAP will include strategies for reduce GHG emissions from all sectors, including agriculture and natural and working lands (i.e., changes in carbon sequestration from land use conversion). The CAP will also address the effects of climate change and strategies to promote adaptation and resilience due to sea-level rise, increased wildfire risk, effects of heat on local populations and agriculture, and other effects. Ascent’s work includes preparation of an updated baseline GHG inventory and an assessment of climate change effects and primary exposure areas, identification and quantification of action strategies, public outreach and stakeholder engagement, and document preparation services.
