What is Adaptive Management?

Adaptive management is the ongoing process we use to assess the implementation of our regulations. As issues arise, we will propose any necessary actions or policies to improve the effectiveness of the regulation.

ARB held a series of regional public meetings to discuss the draft Cap-and-Trade Adaptive Management Process. During the meetings, ARB staff provided a summary of the draft proposed process, schedule, and timeline for public comment.
