The Draft Shared Work Plan was developed pursuant to BARC's Joint Resolution to Address Climate Change in September of 2021, and is intended to strategically align agency planning and regulatory initiatives within a 1-5 year time frame in order to accelerate the implementation of specific strategies that advance shared climate mitigation and adaptation goals. 

The Draft Shared Work Plan was developed by two Working Groups, which broadly focused on climate adaptation and greenhouse gas emissions reduction, respectively, and identified high-priority initiatives for heightened coordination to implement goals laid out in MTC/ABAG's Plan Bay Area 2050, BCDC's Bay Adapt, and BAAQMD's Clean Air Plan, among other regional planning efforts. Non-voting BARC member agencies the San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board and California State Coastal Conservancy also participated.

Prior to the adoption of the Final Shared Work Plan on April 15th, 2022, BARC staff will incorporate feedback from Public Comments received, and refine the Initiatives, including identifying staffing and funding needs, and developing specific metrics to track progress.

The Draft BARC Shared Work Plan is now available.
