The Cape Cod Commission is collaborating with stakeholders to identify strategies and develop an action plan to address the critical challenges posed by climate change. 

Working with the Consensus Building Institute, the Commission developed a stakeholder process that ensures balanced representation of all interests. Stakeholders are contributing to problem definition, climate adaptation and mitigation actions, implementation strategies, and approaches to communication and education.

Four working groups have been established to provide feedback in the topic areas of transportation, housing and development, natural resources and working lands, and energy.

Four subregional municipal meetings were held to better understand local goals, capacity, and needs relative to climate action.
