    The EA+OC is a committee of the Santa Barbara County Regional Climate Collaborative, a growing network of agencies and organizations working on solutions to address the region's climate challenges. 

    The EA+OC has advised projects such as the;

    • County of Santa Barbara’s 2030 Climate Action Plan (CAP),

    • Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA), 

    • Active Transportation Plan (ATP),

    • Environmental Justice Element, 

    • the City of Santa Barbara’s Climate Action Plan, and

    • SBCAG’s Connected 2050 Environmental Justice Chapter.

    Other efforts by the other public agencies may be brought before the  EA+OC. Additionally, the EA+OC could drive the identification, development, and implementation of future policies, programs, and projects to address the communities’ needs.
