An Overview of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities Scoping Papers

June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy developed research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. This brief summarizes the findings of the scoping papers, including the indicators that were identified, the potential to use each to evaluate TCI states’ progress on policies and programs, potential strategies each indicator could support, and TCI state programs that already make use of the indicators.
