Maine Won’t Wait - a Four Year Action Plan for Climate Change
Awarded Plan of the Year by both the Maine Association of Planners and NNECAPA, Maine’s climate action plan is an extraordinary assemblage of documents produced by the Maine Climate Council in 2019-2020. Fundamental to its relevance and success is the original research and analysis provided in the Scientific Assessment of Climate Change and Its Effects in Maine, the report of the scientific and technical subcommittee of the Maine Climate Council. A draft of this document was issued early in the work of the Council and thereby informed the efforts of each of six Working Groups (Buildings, Infrastructure, and Housing; Transportation; Energy; Resilience, Public Health, and Emergency Management; Coastal and Marine; Natural and Working Lands). The final document – Maine Won’t Wait, a title that echoes Governor Janet Mill’s speech and commitment to the United Nations Assembly in 2020 - integrates the work of hundreds of Working Group members with a five-volume cost-benefit analysis and an assessment of the equity implications of its recommendations. A year out from its adoption in December of 2020, implementation is well underway. Emissions reductions targets are bold and being met with E/V network deployment, renewable energy sector development, and installation of thousands of heat pumps. Legislation is also moving apace to improve resilience and multiple funding streams are coming online from state and federal sources. This webinar will provide attendees with insights into the success of the planning process that produced the plan as well as the ongoing opportunities of its implementation.

Building a Thriving Mobility Management Network
Process – Lessons Learned – The Future
The New Hampshire State Coordinating Council for Community Transportation (SCC), its members and affiliates, started with vision of an integrated system of safe, reliable, and sustainable transportation options that allow residents to maintain independence and participate in work and community life no matter their age or ability. Mobility management is a transportation strategy that prioritizes customer needs, and the meeting of those needs through the coordinated use of a variety of providers, and funding streams. In this session you will learn about the steps that NH has taken to plan and implement the NH Statewide Mobility Management. This will include grounding philosophies, opportunities that advanced the planning and implementation, the planning process itself and lessons learned, implementation and finally NH’s hope for the future capacity and sustainability of the network.
