Resilience in the Face of Rising Seas
Climate change-induced sea level rise has already begun to damage U.S. coasts and threaten the survival of communities situated in coastal areas. Predicting the severity of increasing sea levels is difficult, and thus creating adaptation plans to counter this threat is also challenging. In order to effectively combat sea level rise, regional adaptation methods must be established and more funding made available. This paper explains how different regional adaptation initiatives function and demonstrates how they can be improved by integrating alternative adaptation measures and collaborating with the federal government.
