The Coastal Resilience Working Group convenes cross-sector representatives to support the City of Boston as it prepares for the impacts of climate change on Boston’s coastline. The group offers a forum for members to deliver input into Boston’s coastal resilience plans, governance issues, and financing strategies, among various topics.
The Coastal Resilience Working Group has been responsible for several key analyses and reports, including the Climate Ready Boston Report, which together have provided essential research to the City of Boston and influenced the city’s Climate Action Plan.

Climate Ready Boston
The GRC Coastal Resilience Working Group, in partnership with the City of Boston, undertook a broad effort to evaluate climate risks citywide and for each Boston neighborhood. This research manifested in the Climate Ready Boston Report and neighborhood Vulnerability Assessments which informed decisions laid out in the City of Boston’s 2019 Climate Action Plan Update. The 2019 Climate Action Plan is currently being executed by the Wu Administration and the city’s Environment Department – learn more about current climate action efforts being rolled out by the city.
The Coastal Resilience Working Group is co-managed by Boston Harbor Now.
