Abstract

This strategy was created to help coastal decision-makers, legislators, and the public look ahead to possible effects of global climate change on the Oregon coast and to help frame a process for coastal communities and agencies of the State of Oregon to work together to plan for those effects. The goal is resilient, Climate-Ready Coastal Communities.

This strategy for adaptation sets the stage for coordinated planning and action by coastal cities and counties, state agencies, and businesses, individuals, and non-governmental organizations. It frames basic steps needed to prepare adaptation plans and to implement them over time.
