CNAP supports “Rising to the Challenge — Results of the 2011 California Coastal Adaptation Needs Assessment”

May 29, 2012

CNAP support lent to the just released 2011 Assessment examining California coastal adaptation needs. A majority of California’s coastal planners and resource managers now view the threats from climate change as sufficiently likely that practical steps on the ground need to be taken to protect against growing threats, according to results from a new survey. Survey respondents acknowledge the need to prepare for changes along the coast that might result from rising sea levels and other impacts, such as more floods, loss of beach access, coastal erosion and potential damage to transportation infrastructure, including highways, roads and ports.
