Boston is one of the most vulnerable cities in the United States to the effects of climate change. In collaboration with the Green Ribbon Commission, the City is launching a multi-year initiative to identify the neighborhoods and infrastructure that face the greatest risks. A diverse array of solution strategies will be developed for each of these areas. Mr. Ris will review the rationale and anticipated outcomes for this project.

This program is supported in part by a grant to Earth & Environment Professor Dave Marchant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Science Education Program.
