“Preparing for the Rising Tide”

 

Guest Speaker

Vivien Li, President

The Boston Harbor Association

 

In celebration of Earth Day, please join us to learn about climate change adaptation in the greater Boston Area.  Superstorm Sandy was one of the largest Atlantic basin storms in recorded history spanning more than 1,000 miles and over three times the size of a typical hurricane.  Events like Sandy highlight the growing relevance of climate change, the devastating effects storms can have on our public transit systems and the importance of taking steps to be prepared for a likely event. 

 

Vivien Li will discuss the report that she co-authored – “Preparing for the Rising Tide” – which discusses the need of preparedness plans that are designed to handle any future condition and/or be flexible enough to change over time to meet needs as they arise.  Ms. Li will also discuss the report’s recommendations regarding how the private and public sectors can work together to address Boston’s vulnerabilities.
