Event description

Description

A team led by UMass Boston supported by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) with Barr Foundation funding is updating the 2016 Boston Research Advisory Group (BRAG) report, which presented the first scientific consensus on climate changes specifically for the City of Boston. This new project will expand the analysis to investigate climate changes and threats to the 101 cities and towns of the MAPC region and produce one to two Special Reports on topics of interest to the region. The study team is known as the Greater Boston Research Advisory Group (GBRAG).

We are hosting six meetings as extensions of the monthly MAPC Sub-Regional meetings (this invitation is for the Metro West sub-region). The purpose of the meetings is to solicit feedback from planners, researchers, community organizers/representatives, private companies, volunteers, government officials, and others on what climate change parameters are needed for their work and related concerns for the Greater Boston Area. For example, what climate data and projections do you wish you had? What synthesis reports would be useful?

You do not need to be a regular attendee of the sub-regional meetings to participate; in fact, we want to broaden the regular participation. This feedback is very important as it will help guide the GBRAG process. We are also developing a survey to collect information from participants and other sources.

Light refreshments will be provided. We hope you are able to attend. Please contact Kim Starbuck at kimberly.starbuck@umb.edu with any questions.
