Coastal Flood Resilience Resources

More information on the measures needed to improve coastal flood resilience, developed by organizations and individuals participating in the Coastal Flood Resilience Project.

How to Improve Coastal Flood Resilience

Climate change is causing more severe coastal storms and steadily rising sea levels. These events put lives at risk, cause trillions of dollars of property damage, and damage coastal ecosystems and critical infrastructure. Low-income and minority communities bear a disproportionate share of these risks.
