What is the First Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan?  

As required by AB 32, the initial Scoping Plan was developed in
2008.  This Plan must be updated every five years.  The First
Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan (Update) builds upon
the initial Scoping Plan with new strategies and recommendations.
 The Update defines ARBís climate change priorities for the next
five years and lays the groundwork to start the transition to
achieve Californiaís longer-term climate goals.  It highlights
Californiaís progress toward meeting the near-term 2020 GHG
emission reduction goals defined in the initial Scoping Plan and
evaluates how to align the State's longer-term GHG reduction
strategies with other State policy priorities, for water, waste,
natural resources, agriculture, clean energy, transportation and
land use.
