Climate Ready Boston is an initiative to develop resilient solutions to prepare our City for climate change. Last week, the initiative's latest report was released. It has updated climate change projections for the City of Boston, a citywide vulnerability assessment, and recommended climate resilience initiatives to address Boston’s climate risks.

At over 400 pages, the latest report about Boston's vulnerability to climate change risks isn't light reading. Below we've outline a list of links, images, social media stories, and videos to help digest the report's contents, and outline how you can continue to learn from this report's findings and its recommendations. If you'd like more explanation about how these all fit together, find a narrative post here.
