RICAPS Program

The 20 cities in San Mateo County and the County are working together to plan and implement measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (mitigation), and to plan for climate change (adaptation). A working group of cities meets monthly and a countywide technical contractor supports the cities and the County by helping them develop climate action plans, GHG emission inventories, and by providing guidance on plan implementation. The following pages present growing sets of data to help you better understand trends in resource use and the resulting GHG emissions.
