Improving Coastal Resilience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Coastal communities are vital to the national economy, yet they are vulnerable to natural hazards, growing demand for public access and coastal development, sea level rise and flooding events. It is now more important than ever for coastal communities to be able to recover after an adverse event. The Digital Coast helps communities and coastal managers do this by providing a central, user-friendly, and cost-effective repository for the information and training they need. This session will provide a few examples of recent activities and products within NOAA’s Digital Coast that are focused on improving resilience at the local level. These activities range from interactive visualization tools to on-the-ground projects helping communities incorporate climate change adaptation concepts into hazard mitigation planning.
