The ICLEI team provided examples of how communities similar to Lake Oswego approach climate mitigation – and reviewed existing documents related to the existing CAP and original GHG Inventory.
Findings were summarized in a memo and presented to staff.
ICLEI Evaluated planned vs achieved emissions reductions using The ClearPath planning module and its default reduction measure types. In addition, ICLEI developed highly flexible “user-defined” calculators to represent reduction measures of interest to the City.
To conclude the analysis, ICLEI applied the Temperate software application to provide Lake Oswego with downscaled climate data to indicate the expected local climate change impacts on the community. From here, ICLEI worked with the community to conduct a vulnerability assessment.
Finally, ICLEI developed a set of Implementation Strategies with outputs from ClearPath's forecasting module and the vulnerability assessment.
The intent of the strategies is to convey information about the intent of each action, how to measure progress towards targets, highlight successes and identify implementation barriers that can be addressed through ICLEI membership support.
