Coastal Adaptation to a Changing Climate: Lessons from America's Coasts
Event: NCSE Conference 2011
Governments and their partners are taking on climate change in coastal planning around the country. In this session we will explore several of these efforts, discuss what is and is not successful, and offer information about resources that can support development of adaptation efforts, like the Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange (CAKE).
Climate change adaptation is not an insurmountable challenge, rather it's simply how we must now do the business of management and planning. CAKE includes over 200 examples of climate change adaptation action already being implemented, including the case studies in this session.
