Chittenden County’s climate is changing. Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including through more extreme weather events and wildfire, decreased air quality, and diseases transmitted by insects, food, and water. CCRPC works with member municipalities and regional partners on a variety of projects that help us to either mitigate climate change or adapt to it. Climate mitigation includes activities that reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions. Climate adaptation means taking actions to prevent the impact of hazards caused by climate change or to take advantage of the opportunities that may arise.
