The latest draft of SA Climate Ready is now available!


SA Climate Ready is San Antonio's climate action & adaptation plan to meet the present and future challenges of climate change.

SA Climate Ready provides strategies for ensuring economic prosperity and quality of life.

SA Climate Ready prioritizes clean air, public health, water quality and conservation, good jobs, transportation choices, clean and secure energy and emergency preparedness.

SA Climate Ready supports market transitions and consumer options, while preparing residents, businesses, and institutions for an unpredictable climate.

SA Climate Ready identifies a process for equity and affordability to ensure that a Climate Ready San Antonio benefits all of our residents.

SA Climate Ready is grounded in best available climate science and best practices.

The Second Draft of the Climate Action & Adaptation Plan retains all of the strategies that were identified in the initial draft.
So, what were the changes?
  • The plan was refined based on stakeholder engagement. It serves as the foundation for climate action.
  • By condensing, streamlining and rearranging content, the readability was improved.
  • The plan was revised to ensure that it was consistent with the objectives of City Council's resolution in support of the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Certain language and images were updated to make the document more San Antonio specific.
  • The plan now provides a clear process for reporting, updates and implementation.

We have heard you!
