About SA Climate Ready
Sustainable
San Antonio

SA Climate Ready is a project aiming to improve the quality of life of all residents of San Antonio and make the city and its people better prepared to face expected changes in climate. SA Climate Ready aims to develop a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan for the City of San Antonio.

A Climate Action and Adaptation plan is a strategy document that outlines a collection of actions and policies that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based upon a reduction target, as well as evaluates climate-related impacts to our community and provides strategies to adapt and build resilience.

The SA Climate Ready Project will explore both mitigation strategies, aiming to reduce or prevent the emission of GHGs, and adaptation strategies aiming to prepare the community, municipal government operations, and other key sectors for the anticipated impacts of climate change.

Environment

SA Climate Ready aims to ensure that current and future generations of San Antonians, and all living things, thrive in the face of a changing climate. Read the methodologies document.

Economy

SA Climate Ready will include an assessment of the economic costs and benefits of each proposed mitigation or adaptation strategies, as well as s other associated benefits and costs, including any possible co-benefits on issues such as public health, air quality, economic development, employment opportunities, etc.

All co-benefits will be quantified in economic terms, when possible. Read the methodologies document.

Equity

While climate change affects everyone, not all people are impacted equally. People of color, immigrants, seniors, refugees, and lower-income populations experience increased exposure and sensitivity to climate hazards and a reduced capacity to adapt.

As local governments plan and implement their response to climate change, the opportunity exists to create stronger, more equitable communities for everyone. Read the methodologies document.
