Vision for Clean Air: A Framework for Air Quality and Climate Planning
Public Review Draft Release
A public review draft of Vision for Clean Air: A Framework for Air Quality and Climate Planning has been released by staff of the Air Resources Board, the South Coast Air Qualilty Management District and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. This joint agency effort takes a coordinated look at strategies needed to meet California's multiple air quality and climate goals well into the future.
California's success in reducing smog has largely relied on technology and fuel advances, and as health-based air quality standards are tightened, the introduction of cleaner technologies must keep pace. More broadly, a transition to zero- and near-zero emission technologies is necessary to meet 2023 and 2032 air quality standards and 2050 climate goals. Many of the same technologies will address both air quality and climate needs. As such, strategies developed for air quality and climate change planning should be coordinated to make the most efficient use of limited resources and the time needed to develop cleaner technologies.
