Project Summary/Overview

The Massachusetts Bays Project (MBP) was one of six pilot projects to receive a technical assistance award in 2008 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Ready Estuaries Program. The primary purpose of the project was to conduct a vulnerability assessment of salt marsh habitat in the area in order to adjust management policies to properly address the challenges of climate change. Using conceptual models and expert input, the MBP plans to provide detailed recommendations for salt marsh management at federal, state, and municipal levels; in addition, the MBP plans to use the findings to inform revisions to their own Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.

Project Summary/Overview

The coastal zone of the Gulf and Caribbean coasts of Mexico is extremely vulnerable to climate change impacts. These areas are already threatened by habitat degradation, ecosystem fragmentation, increased development and population growth, and a lack of coastal zone legislation to guide management and protection. There is an urgent need to develop an integrated Environmental Strategic Plan for the coastal zone with the involvement of government, university sectors, and stakeholders, and to develop a regional coastal zone program and legislation.
