Bring together communities in the Charles River watershed to work on climate adaptation by sharing information and experiences and taking a watershed view of adaptation strategies.

Even though many cities and towns are allocating resources to climate adaptation, the reality is there are challenges that individual towns cannot address on their own and are more appropriately addressed at a regional scale.
