This interactive map of the United States contains state-by-state links to documents, powerpoints, and other information on state DOT climate change and energy activities. It includes reports, policies, plans, and research sponsored by the designated state DOT or part of a collaborative effort that involves the state DOT. It includes information on both greenhouse gas mitigation activities as well as climate adaptation activities. To access this information for a particular state, click on the state name on the website, and it will bring up a list of items which are accessible by clicking on the individual item title. Additional resources are listed below.
|State DOTs with climate change documentation available.|
Most of the items on this site were provided by state DOTs in response to a request from AASHTO, or they were found on the state DOT's general website. The map will continue to be populated as additional items are available from state DOTs. Any state DOT that would like to add or revise information for this map should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Above and beyond the contents of this interactive map, it is likely that state DOTs are engaged in a great deal of additional activities relating to climate change, greenhouse gas mitigation, climate adaptation, energy conservation, and alternative energy sources, but these activities are sometimes not labeled as "climate change" or "energy" or are not posted on the state DOT website. For example, many state DOTs are active in supporting Bike Sharing programs, Ridesharing Programs, and Transit, in part to reduce GHG emissions or energy conservation, but not always specifically labeled as such. These and other activities can be added to the interactive map if states wish to provide them as activities directly linked to climate change and energy goals.
