Thursday, December 13. Tackling Climate Change in Pima County. The Southwest is already the hottest and driest region in the United States and scientists say it will get hotter and drier in coming decades. Harsh conditions and other stressors – water shortage and a growing population – make the region acutely vulnerable to climate change impacts. Pima County is working to build resilience and prepare for the current and future climate variability our region will experience. The Board of Supervisors has approved measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from county operations and adopted wide-ranging climate adaptation strategies. Dr. Julie Robinson, manager of Pima County’s Sustainability Programs, shares details of the newest Sustainable Action Plan for County Operations.
