Public/private partnerships via "ideas competition"
While Berkeley has made significant strides in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions (by approximately 9 percent since 2000), we must advance existing and planned initiatives and identify new strategies at the State, regional, and local levels in order to meet our ambitious Climate Action Plan goals. To identify new ideas and innovations and to foster public/private partnerships, the City is developing an “Ideas Competition,” which will engage experts, entrepreneurs, and other interested stakeholders to help the City to develop additional, viable multi-benefit emissions-reduction strategies.
- Berkeley’s Resilience Strategy
Berkeley’s Resilience Strategy – the first in the Bay Area – is designed to advance community preparedness for some of Berkeley’s most pressing physical, social, and economic challenges.
