The Compact invites local and tribal governments across the four-county region to complete the annual self-assessment survey on their progress toward the 11 prioritized mitigation and adaptation actions, as well as the ways in which they have embedded equity into these actions.
Instructions on how to complete the Survey:
It is recommended that staff who are responsible for resilience, sustainability, and/or planning should complete the self-assessment survey with support as needed from other cross-functional departments. The time it takes to complete the survey will be dependent on the level of detail provided in the response, however, it is estimated to take 1 – 5 hours to complete. Last year’s responses will be pre-populated in the survey and respondents will have access to them while completing the survey. Alternatively, respondents can download their previous year’s responses via the Compact C-CAT webpage. Please submit only one survey response per local or tribal government.
The Survey will be open from June 20, 2022 to September 9, 2022.
The attached document provides all survey questions (in a fillable pdf format) to allow a respondent to review the survey in its entirety before beginning the response process in SOGOSurvey. Only responses provided in SOGOSurvey will be accepted. Within the survey platform, respondents will have the ability to save a portion of the survey and return to complete at a later date. However, once you click “done” at the end of the survey, you have completed your survey and you will not be able to go back and make edits to your responses. Please contact Russell Paez, [email protected], if you need access to your survey responses.
In 2021, the first year this survey was administered, the Compact aimed to establish a baseline of what climate actions local governments are advancing across the Compact region. In responding to this year’s survey, please report on the most impactful activities the local government has done to advance the 11 priority actions in calendar year 2021 (January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021)
If you or someone else within your organization submitted responses to the last year’s survey, click on the link below to access the 2022 CCAT survey with your previous responses pre-populated.
Once you enter your password on the first screen, you will be taken to the 2022 C-CAT survey with last year’s written responses pre-populated in an editable format. Please keep in mind that we have modified the question format, so you will see the responses that coordinate with the proper questions. The purpose of the pre- population is to reduce response time, however, please do make any necessary edits to pre-populated responses to augment or improve accuracy of the information provided. To save and come back at a later date, click on “save and continue later”.
Should you encounter any issues with accessing your password or your pre-populated responses, please contact Asya at [email protected]

This document contains all survey questions to allow a respondent to review before beginning the response process in SOGOSurvey. A respondent can return to the survey as many times as necessary once they have begun in SOGOSurvey.
This document contains guidance developed by an equity advisory committee to support local governments in their efforts to embed equity in their climate action. While this document is comprehensive, it is not meant to be exhaustive of every possible step a local government can take to advance equitable climate action.
To learn more about how the Compact will use the survey results, please refer to the Regional Climate Assessment Snapshot.
While partaking in the survey is completely voluntary for local governments, we believe there are numerous benefits:
- Provides guidance on priority actions to take to address climate change
- Provides guidance from local equity experts on ways to embed equity into climate actions
- Creates common priorities to work on together as a region, and identifies other local government leaders from whom to learn
- Provides opportunity to share progress and successes
- Aids in improving transparency on climate change activities
- Supports communication with communities and other key stakeholders
- Builds the case for increasingly ambitious climate action in the region and the resources to support this action
- Helps identify and inform potential topics for regional capacity building
