New England Governors/Eastern Canadian Premiers Regional Climate Change Action Plan

New Hampshire has participated in a cooperative effort to develop a regional climate change action plan under the auspices of the Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP).

The NEG/ECP Climate Change Action Plan 2001 calls for a proactive and aggressive approach to reducing greenhouse gases and sets specific goals and targets.

Short-term: Reduce regional GHG emissions to 1990 emissions by 2010
Mid-term: Reduce regional GHG emissions by at least 10% below 1990 emissions by 2020, and establish an iterative five-year process, commencing in 2005, to adjust the goals if necessary and set future emissions reduction goals.
Long-term: Reduce regional GHG emissions sufficiently to eliminate any dangerous threat to the climate; current science suggests this will require reductions of 75-85% below current levels.
