This section of the Toolkit focuses on the modeling and analysis tools currently available to evaluate packages of programs and actions intended to reduce the GHG emissions. It discusses tools anticipated in the near future for Oregon’s local agencies, as well as tools in use nationally that might be adapted in Oregon assist in reducing GHG. The Modeling and Analysis Tools Report can be used in conjunction with scenario planning, or for other planning needs.
GHG modeling and analysis is a new and rapidly developing field. Therefore, this section and the Toolkit as a whole must be maintained as a living document in order to stay relevant.
