The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ integrated State Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan (SHMCAP) is now available on the State’s climate action page! It will ultimately live on the resilient MA Climate Change Clearinghouse. This integrated plan serves as an update to the Commonwealth’s existing 2013 State Hazard Mitigation Plan and is also driven by Executive Order No. 569, “Establishing an Integrated Climate Change Strategy for the Commonwealth”. It addresses the Commonwealth’s federally mandated hazard mitigation plan requirements and represents a first-of-its-kind statewide integrated hazard mitigation and climate adaptation plan.
Please note this SHMCAP project website will shut down at the end of April 2019. The purpose of this project website was to keep project stakeholders informed about the development of the plan and to facilitate exchange of information. Going forward, please use the links above to access SHMCAP materials and track plan implementation. Thanks to everyone who participated in the SHMCAP planning process!
