EASTERN SIERRA WILDFIRE ALLIANCE WELCOMES YOU

WHO WE ARE

Eastern Sierra Wildfire Alliance (ESWA) is a collaborative of partners from Inyo, Mono, and Alpine counties. To reduce risks of future catastrophic wildfire, build local capacity, and boost community resiliency, ESWA coordinates efforts to holistically tackle the challenges posed by wildfires.

This website is made available through funding by the California Climate Investments (CCI) and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. CCI is a statewide initiative that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. 

The cap and trade program creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution.

By late 2023, the cap and trade auctions had supported more than $9.8 billion in projects of the California Climate Investments program.

 

More than a third of California Climate Investments must benefit disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households.
