NARC held the 13th in a series of workshops on integrating air quality and transportation planning in Washington, DC, on February 4, 2008. This workshop provided national responses to the impacts of GCC and provided insight into possible effects integrating greenhouse gases (GHG) into transportation planning. The workshop included multiple approaches reducing harmful emissions, including climate change planning, cap-and-trade programs, emissions taxes and Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. The workshop also emphasized how and why COGs and MPOs will need to understand climate change and its potential impacts.
