This Guide will serve as a toolkit for city, county, state, and regional governing bodies (particularly in the US) to follow in their own pursuit of net-zero emissions. This Guide will distill the high-level process undertaken by the County of San Diego, highlight the enabling factors for success, and provide a step-by-step instruction manual for other jurisdictions that wish to undertake similar long-term decarbonization planning processes. Although several elements of this project are replicable and applicable to other jurisdictions, the strategies provided in this Guide must be tailored to each local context. This includes determining which actions are feasible and which ones are not, as well as recognizing where engagement with other stakeholders at lower or higher levels will be needed to achieve the multidimensional coordination required to achieve deep decarbonization.
