Decarbonizing California’s Transportation Sector by 2045
Since the passing of the California Global Warming Solutions Act in 2006 (AB-32), California has taken an aggressive approach to address the climate crisis. Over the last decade and a half, the state has developed a variety of policies and programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with a particular focus on transportation. The California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) contracted with the University of California Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS) on a pair of studies to address this.
In January 2020 an invited group of 70 professionals, representing academic, business, and non-profit sectors, met at the University of California, Davis to discuss lessons learned from sustainable community initiatives and how to facilitate a more rapid change toward sustainable urbanism. The inspiration for the event came from construction of The Sustainable City (TSC) in Dubai and West Village at UC Davis.

Systemic challenges and concrete policies prevent investment in quality, healthy, resource-rich affordable housing. In order to overcome these challenges, there is a great need for data-driven and informed advocacy on local, regional, state, and federal levels that results in strategic and sustainable development of communities. This data can support the work of planners, developers, and other decision-makers in creating holistic and catalytic projects that are competitive for these limited resources.
