A Climate Ready County
Climate change is here, and it poses many risks to the built and natural environment in San Mateo County. The County is home to diverse neighborhoods, beaches, parks, trails, airports, seaports, and numerous renowned high-tech companies and businesses.
We value this area and all that it has to offer, which is why the County is actively preparing for climate risks such as rising temperatures and heatwaves, wildfires, extreme storms, landslides, sea level rise, flooding and coastal erosion.
While the changing climate poses many risks to the people and places in San Mateo County, together we can take steps to adapt and protect our people and our valuable resources.
