Project Summary

The Atlantic Governments from the Council of Atlantic Environment Ministers joined together in May 2008 to collaborate on a regional climate change adaptation strategy. The strategy outlines a framework for future collaboration on climate change adaptation management plans and decision-making.

Project Summary

Despite the use of stabilizing structures, flooding of San Pedro Creek and coastal erosion at Pacifica/Linda Mar State Beach has been a recurring problem for the City of Pacifica. In the early 1990s, the city partnered with state and federal agencies, scientists, engineers, and non-profit organizations to work toward a managed retreat strategy for Pacifica State Beach as well as restore wetlands and banks along San Pedro Creek.

Project Summary

Nova Scotia is an Atlantic Canadian province almost entirely surrounded by water. As such, climate change impacts including sea level rise and increases in extreme weather events and storm surges are expected to affect land uses (e.g., infrastructure, agriculture). This study, focused on land use planners, aimed to develop and/or modify tools to analyze climate change impacts on Canadian communities, as well as tools to implement adaptations to these impacts.

Project Summary

The Indigenous People’s Global Summit on Climate Change brought together over 400 indigenous participants from all over the world to exchange their knowledge and experience with climate change impacts, as well as successful adaptation strategies currently being used and recommendations for future actions.

Project Summary

New Brunswick, Canada has approximately 5,500 kilometers (km) of coastline and is vulnerable to rising sea levels and increased storminess. In response to this vulnerability, a three-year study was undertaken to forecast likely climate changes, anticipate physical impacts of these changes, and identify potential adaptation strategies.

Project Summary

Graham Island is the most northern of the Queen Charlotte Islands and is located off the North Pacific coast of British Columbia. The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has classified the northeast area of Graham Island as extremely sensitive to sea level rise, and two communities, Masset and Old Masset, are already experiencing flooding and coastal erosion.

Project Summary

In early 2007, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) invited North Carolina coastal managers and stakeholders to participate in a workshop to identify and discuss the utility of modeling and mapping tools in planning for and mitigating the regional impacts of rising sea levels and increasing storm intensity. The purpose of the workshop was to help scientists design user-friendly tools that will facilitate management planning for the effects of long-term climate changes.

Project Summary

In response to community concerns about the potential impacts of climate change on renewable resources in Labrador, a conference was held to examine the possible future interactions of climate change on renewable resources and set priorities for developing strategies to adapt to potential impacts.

Project Summary

The Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) is located in Aransas Bay northeast of Corpus Christi. The reserve is located in an area where rapid development and increased population growth has exacerbated pollution, habitat loss, habitat degradation, overfishing, invasive species, and coastal hazard threats. The Ecosystem Based Management Tools Project was designed to examine the links between land use strategies and their effects on coastal and marine ecosystems.

Project Summary

Malibu’s 21 miles of coastline include some of the world’s most famous beaches and highly valued coastal property. Sea level rise poses an enormous threat to the sandy beaches of Malibu as well as to the multi-million dollar homes lining the coast. The Malibu Local Coastal Program’s Land Use and Local Implementation Plans aim to ensure the Coastal Act is upheld and the city’s General Plan and other development and planning ordinances comply with the California Coastal Act.
