Climate Resilient Galveston

Climate change will bring unprecedented impacts to Galveston Island and the communities that call it home. Stronger storms, sea level rise, extreme heat and prolonged drought are just a few of the consequences that may be seen in the coming years. 

Climate Resilient Galveston provides local leaders and stakeholders a comprehensive assessment of climate risks facing the island. We then lay out strategies for effectively employing nature-based solutions that can mitigate and prevent harms and losses resulting from these disasters.

As the 2024 hurricane season approaches with the looming threat of a record-breaking number of storms, the report illustrates the urgent need for proactive planning and adaptation efforts.
