Denver is highly vulnerable to the impacts of a changing climate and is projected to face warmer days, changing snow pack, more intense wildfires, and more intense storms and precipitation events over the next several decades. With a growing economy and a densifying city, strategic action is needed now for Denver to develop equitable and sustainable solutions to expected climate impacts.

The Trust for Public Land’s national Climate-Smart Cities program is providing key planning and decision-making support to help the City and County of Denver take strategic action on climate change through green infrastructure. Together with municipal and community partners, we’re bringing cutting-edge science, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) planning, and innovative design to help prepare the city for a climate-resilient future with a particular emphasis on investments for under-served populations.
