Climate Smart Cities™ Boston – Planning and GIS

https://web.tplgis.org/boston_climate/

The City of Boston is tackling the challenges associated with climate change head on. In a city where a densely populated highly urbanized meets the sea, the city is doing the hard work to prepare for sea level rise, increasing urban temperatures, greater precipitation, and other risks through their robust and comprehensive climate analysis and action plan, Climate Ready Boston. The Trust for Public Land’s national Climate-Smart Cities™ program is providing key planning and decision-making support to help the city achieve the goals laid out in Climate Ready Boston. Together with city and community partners, we’re bringing cutting-edge science, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) planning, and innovative design to prepare the entire region for a climate-resilient future with a particular emphasis on underserved populations and critical at-risk infrastructure.
