Climate Ready Boston
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 help advance our vision for a Climate Ready Boston.
This report includes high-quality maps and as a result may have a slow load time, especially on mobile devices. You can also read this report by reserving a hard copy through the Boston Public Library.

Wondering what the City is doing as it advances toward climate preparedness? This is your tool.
Across the City, we recognize the importance of tracking our progress and being transparent. This tool is the first iteration to improve those efforts in climate resiliency. We want to show the progress we're making with the initiatives recommended in the Climate Ready Boston Outline of Actions.
