Salt Lake City, UT, is working to bolster workforce development opportunities under its new Comprehensive Climate Action Plan (CCAP) to address the negative impacts of climate change while also benefiting the economic security of all its residents, especially for historically disinvested and low-income communities that lack resources to respond to the climate crisis. FUSE Executive Fellow Nathan Chai will partner with Salt Lake City to guide workforce planning and analysis under the new CCAP that will ultimately help increase equitable green job opportunities for residents.
