Climate Ready Boston

Climate Ready Boston is an initiative to develop resilient solutions to prepare our City for climate change.

Boston residents are already affected by extreme heat, rain, snow and flooding. These trends will likely continue. The City launched Climate Ready Boston to help Boston plan for the future impacts of climate change.

Climate Ready Boston is an ongoing initiative. We released a comprehensive study report in December 2016 that you can read below.  We are now working with the community and other partners to advance our vision for a Climate Ready Boston.

Climate Ready Boston is a partnership with the Green Ribbon Commission with support from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management.
