Many coastal communities are looking for ways to apply ecosystem-based management approaches for community resilience. This presentation will highlight the four-step process of The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience project, which includes awareness, risk, choice, and action. This approach focuses on the need to tailor options to fit the varying needs and pace of different communities. The case studies that will be presented focus on communities that have moved beyond the awareness phase in the process to assessing vulnerability and developing options for future action.
