Sea Level Rise and Extreme Precipitation

: Preparing for Boston's Uncertain Future

How should communities build resilience for dealing with weather and climate-related hazards in the coming decades? Participants will use visualizations to explore potential vulnerabilities to our infrastructures, social networks, and ecosystems from sea level rise and extreme precipitation events, then discuss potential strategies for addressing these threats, focusing on the priorities and needs of relevant stakeholders. At the event's conclusion, participants will make recommendations for increasing Boston's community resilience.
