Linnean developed the well-regarded report, Building Resilience in Boston, to advise the Boston Green Ribbon Commission, the Boston Society of Architects, the City of Boston, and the broader Boston community on climate adaptation strategies for improving the resilience of existing physical assets in Boston. The report also prompted the creation of several additional tools to further Boston’s action on city-wide resilience.
Linnean reviewed national and international research, publications, and planning documents, and conducted extensive interviews with local experts to establish best practices for urban resilience planning. A comprehensive list of resilience solutions were compiled to provide policy-makers, architects, engineers, and the community at large with a single source of practical resilience solutions. The report also highlighted programs and policies that local organizations and governments can employ to mitigate vulnerability.
