The Georgetown Climate Center was created in 2009 at the request of leading foundations and state governments to serve as a bridge between the states and the federal government and as a resource for states as they develop their own climate policies.

State and local governments reflect the diversity of regional exposure to climate risks, economic development interests, and political leadership.  On behalf of the Georgetown Climate Center, we have worked directly with state and local governments:
