Two documents have been produced by Boston Harbour Now, based on discussions with experts and stakeholders, which define recommendations on how to respond to four challenges: growth, synergy, flexibility and change. These recommendations also evolved after the participation of Jill Valdes (Boston Harbour Now) in the AIVP World Conference in Quebec.

The City of Long Beach holds a consultation on its Climate Plan

Since June 2018, around twenty workshops and forums have been organised to present the plan to residents and business leaders.

Hanoi: flood risk and urban development

Three options are currently being considered to protect Hanoi from flood risks, while developing over 11,000 hectares of available land on both banks of the Red River. The CRTKL/Arcadis team recommends the third of these options, which involves stabilising the existing banks and creating floodable areas.
