Resilient Worcester

Like many other places, the City of Worcester is already being affected by extreme weather events caused by a changing climate.

In response, in 2019, Worcester completed a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness assessment and planning analysis. The city conducted a community workshop in January, and came out with a set of recommendation for the city and its community to follow in order to improve its infrastructural, societal and environmental resiliency to extreme weather events.
