The Preparedness Strategy Committee-- made up of community, non profit, private, academic and city representatives-- is currently discussing how we must prepare our neighborhoods, infrastructure, and buildings for expected climate change impacts. These impacts include sea level rise, flooding, extreme weather events, and heat. The Strategy Committee's recommendations will inform the city's 2014 Climate Action Plan update, where preparedness strategies are being expanded for the first time.
Below are some key ideas that came out of the first Strategy Committee meeting. Help us to expand these concepts and define what they must mean on the ground. Add new ideas and show us your priorities by voting!
