￼In his January 2015 State of the City address, Mayor Robert Garcia announced that he wanted to make Long Beach a model of a climate resilient city. The Mayor asked the Aquarium of the Pacific to take the lead in assessing the primary threats posed by climate change, identify the most vulnerable neighbor- hoods and segments of the Long Beach population, and provide a preliminary assessment of options to reduce these vulnerabilities.
The Aquarium worked with experts from Southern California universities and regional and city government agencies to publish the City of Long Beach Climate Resiliency Assessment Report in December 2015. The report offers a summary of the conclusions found in the Assessment. While this summary does not go beyond the conclusions reached by the experts, some additional information has been added to provide helpful context.
