CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER IMPACT: THE BOSTON EXPERIENCE
John Cleveland, Executive Director, Boston Green Ribbon Commission
Tuesday, April 4, 3:30-4:30, followed by Members and exhibit partners-only evening from 5-6:30
Boston is the fourth most vulnerable city in the U.S. to future climate change impacts. Over the last several years, the city has been engaged in deep planning to remain vibrant, growing and safe in the face of the expected changes. This presentation will explain how Boston is preparing for expected climate impacts over the next several decades, especially sea level and rise and extreme precipitation. The city is expected to experience 3-5 feet of sea level rise by 2100, and it will require a dramatic reshaping of the urban form adapt to this new reality. This process will play out over multiple decades and will present difficult challenges as well as terrific opportunities to reinvent urban life.
