Climate Ready Boston is a long-term climate preparedness planning process for the Greater Boston region. Phase One will be completed by the summer of 2016 and includes:
- Development of a climate projection consensus of future climate change hazards faced by the Boston area in 2030, 2050, 2070, and 2100.
- An integrated vulnerability assessment that aims to identify critical resiliency focus areas and their climate vulnerabilities.
- A portfolio of potential solution strategies for the critical resiliency focus areas identified
A Better City's Challenge for Sustainability is hosting a meeting to support the City's Climate Ready Boston program.
This meeting will bring attendees up to speed on the completed climate projection for Greater Boston and walk through the vulnerability assessment process.
Next, some special guests representing a leading nation in climate resiliency will help answer the question “What can I do to adapt?” A group of deployable flood defense equipment providers visiting from the Netherlands will be presenting their technologies and will be available for Q&A after the presentation.
