2020 CLIMATE STRATEGY
In November 2019, Governor Sisolak issued Executive Order 2019-22 calling for development of a State Climate Strategy by December 2020. In response to this directive, an inter-agency team created a framework for the Strategy that is focused on robust engagement, assessment, and action on climate change issues in Nevada.
The 2020 Climate Strategy will consist of eight core components including sections outlining climate impacts in Nevada, creative approaches to financing climate action, effective climate governance models, and the role of climate action in economic recovery. The Climate Strategy will provide a framework designed to evaluate the alignment of policies with the timelines and benchmarks necessary for Nevada to achieve its greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. Led by the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Governor’s Office of Energy, the 2020 Climate Strategy is being drafted by a diverse team of state agencies.
