Cal Poly’s city & regional planning department, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, will host the second California Climate Action Planning Conference on Aug. 13-14.
The conference will address topics such as the new 2030 greenhouse emissions targets, advances in regional and local climate planning, updated protocols and guidance, climate adaptation and resilience and the drought.
The keynote speaker is Santa Barbara County Supervisor Salud Carbajal. A Democrat, he is among those running for the 24th District congressional seat now held by Lois Capps, who is retiring at the end of the current term.
Carbajal has worked to establish a waste-to-energy facility as well as reduce the use of pesticides and establish an energy efficiency financing district. He also has served on the National Association of Counties’ Energy, Environmental and Land Use Committee.
The 2013 conference, held at Cal Poly, attracted more than 200 professionals from around the state.
