Climate change adaptation means being prepared for a changing climate by taking action today to reduce the potential impacts of climate change to people, buildings, and infrastructure. While the District does its part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it is already seeing the impacts of climate change due to historic carbon emissions.

Climate Ready DC is the District’s strategy to make the city more resilient to future climate change. It is based on the best available climate science and was developed through consultation with leading experts within and outside of the District government.
