New Report Outlines a Path For Maryland to Achieve Climate Goals

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) welcomes the release of Maryland’s Climate Pathway Report. The report, developed by the Maryland Department of the Environment and the University of Maryland’s Center for Global Sustainability, charts a path to achieve Maryland’s climate goals while benefiting the economy, human health, and the environment. 

Following the release of the report, CBF Maryland Executive Director Allison Colden issued this statement.

“Climate change is a critical threat to Maryland’s economy, communities, and the environment. Increasing temperatures, sea-level rise, and increasing rainfall will also make restoring local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay more difficult.  

“Fortunately, many practices that mitigate climate change will also help restore the Bay. The report recognizes the importance of practices like regenerative agriculture that sequester carbon and improve soil health, the need to restore and expand blue carbon habitats including wetlands and underwater grasses, and the critical role that forests play in order to help Maryland achieve ambitious climate goals and move us closer to a restored Bay.

“The Chesapeake Bay Foundation looks forward to working with Governor Moore’s administration to implement actions outlined in the report.”
