This will optimize effectiveness of each given policy and therefore maximize the benefits for all Nevadans. By taking a smart, strategic approach to addressing climate change in Nevada, the state can fully capture the economic benefits of clean technologies and lead our peers in neighboring Western states.
The 2020 State Climate Strategy is a living document. Each section of the report is designed to stand alone such that content can be added or updated without compromising the integrity or relevance of another part of the document (Table 1). The NCI team led the development of the strategy, overseeing multiple interagency working groups. These working groups were coordinated around the strategy’s climate themes and led the development of the content and related stakeholder engagement activities (Table 2).
