Preparing for climate change

Climate Ready Boston is our initiative to get the City ready for the long-term impacts of climate change.

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

Climate Ready Boston is an ongoing initiative. We work with the community and other partners to advance our vision for a Climate Ready Boston.
