A Regional Approach to Protecting Metropolitan Boston's Harbor and Hinterlands

The City of Boston and the Green Ribbon Commission are conducting a feasibility study for the construction of a protective barrier for the Boston Harbor. Based on the latest scientific data and sound methodologies, the cities of Boston and Cambridge have produced climate action plans projected through the end of this century. These worthy efforts are nevertheless constrained by their restriction to municipal boundaries. This presentation will argue that the case for a Boston Harbor barrier can most effectively be made on a regional basis for social, economic and technical reasons. In addition to the effects of climate change, a real challenge is to create governmental and financial instruments to rise to the occasion.
