Increasing the use of renewable energy, such as solar and wind power
Investing in research and development of new technologies to reduce emissions
Improving energy efficiency in buildings and industry
Planting trees to absorb carbon dioxide and reduce the urban heat island effect
Adapting to the impacts of climate change that are already occurring, such as through better water management and fire-proofing homes and communities
Encouraging individuals and businesses to reduce their carbon footprint.
