  • Coordination – to adopt consistent standards, benchmarks, strategies, and overall goals related to responding to climate change
  • Solutions – to share local success stories, challenges, data and products that support and enhance climate mitigation efforts by all partners
  • Funding and resources – to secure grant funding and other shared resource opportunities to support climate related projects and programs
