The Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources (CLEANR) presents:
CLEANR is pleased to announce The Environmental Law Reporter’s publication of our recent report on  Mitigating Climate Change Through Transportation and Land Use Policy . This report follows an October 2018 workshop roundtable hosted by CLEANR that convened policymakers and other experts in transportation, land use, planning, and environmental protection. The publication is the product of participant contributions from that roundtable as well as additional research and interviews conducted by the Center.  
A number of U.S. state and local governments have adopted strategies for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation and land development. Although some have made significant progress in reducing GHG emissions from the power sector, transportation emissions in most states continue to rise. This report details the range of existing and proposed state interventions to reduce transportation-sector GHG emissions, analyzes the trade offs of these strategies, and offers recommendations to improve and supplement such initiatives. These recommendations include: strategic use of planning mandates, funding, and technical assistance; land use regulation; transportation spending adjustments; removal of barriers to road pricing policy implementation; and alteration of standards for environmental impact analysis.
