Richmond Climate Action Plan
Raimi + Associates worked with ESA to develop a climate action and adaptation plan for the City of Richmond. The Richmond Climate Action Plan is a roadmap for how the City will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of climate change on public health, infrastructure, ecosystems, and public spaces in the community. The Plan supports the community’s goals and policies in the City’s General Plan, and builds upon the City’s Health in All Policies Strategy which identified health equity and climate justice as important aspects of the Climate Action Plan.
R+A led a robust community engagement effort that included community workshops, luncheons with key stakeholders such as community-based organizations, local businesses, utilities, and industry groups, and an interactive
project website. R+A also completed a climate change vulnerability assessment, developed climate action plan strategies and actions, and assessed the health co-benefits of greenhouse gas mitigation measures.
