The Rocky Mountain Climate Organization (RMCO) undertook the Colorado Climate Project to bring Coloradans together to reduce the state’s contribution and vulnerability to climate change. The project was inspired by and patterned after similar efforts undertaken by state governments around the country. Like many of those efforts, the Colorado Climate Project was carried out in partnership with the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS), which helped design the process and provided technical analyses for and facilitation services for this project, as CCS has done for state government advisory panels in several states. RMCO’s Project Directors of the Colorado Climate Project appointed a blue-ribbon Climate Action Panel (CAP) and charged them to develop recommendations for actions that can be taken in Colorado by the state government, local governments, water providers, the private sector, and individuals to reduce the state’s contribution and vulnerability to a changed climate. This report is the culmination of the work of 116 Coloradans who worked as members of and alternates to the CAP and the six Policy Work Groups (PWGs) that supported the CAP.
