Climate Action Plan

Information about the City of Albuquerque's Climate Action Plan.

Climate Action Plan

To halt Albuquerque’s contributions to climate change and prepare for changing temperatures, the City is updating the Albuquerque Climate Action Plan. Over the next 9 months, community members can share their voices to shape the next stage of Albuquerque’s climate change vision and spur citywide improvements such as:

  • Better Bike Lanes
  • Greener Neighborhoods
  • Safer Sidewalks
  • New Ways to Save Energy

Following the call of City Resolution R-19-187 to create a Climate Plan that serves all of Albuquerque, the City invites all residents to take the Climate Survey and apply to serve on the Climate Task Force.

What is a Climate Action Plan?

A Climate Action Plan advocates our city’s values and defines actions to halt Albuquerque’s contributions to climate change. The Plan will also discuss what our community will do to prepare for our changing climate.

What is the process?

For Albuquerque’s Climate Plan, equity is in the driver’s seat. Throughout the process, residents that are most vulnerable to climate change will lead the conversations about current challenges and future solutions. This approach will help ensure that front line communities – those that have been harmed by environmental injustice and who are likely to be hurt first and worst by the impacts of climate change – will benefit first and foremost from climate action. Employing a process utilizing targeted universalism will lift up the entire City – making the plan’s course of actions stronger and more effective.

The Climate Action Planning process will take place over the next 12 months. The public will have the opportunity to shape the plan through climate survey and by giving public comment on the draft plan when it is released. Community leaders interested in working with city government and subject matter experts to create the plan contents should apply to the Climate Action Task Force. The timeline demonstrates key process phases.
