California Coastal Resilience Network

Mission

The California Coastal Resilience Network promotes knowledge exchange and policies that support adaptation solutions that strategically and comprehensively prepare California’s coastal habitats and communities for climate induced impacts.

Niche

The Network provides a space for informal dialogue between local and state managers to improve coastal management efficiency and communication, and aims to provide local managers with the tools they need to implement nature-based multi-benefit coastal adaptation solutions.

What we do

Network members meet monthly via webinar, where experts and practitioners share lessons learned from their adaptation work to foster stronger regional collaborations and facilitate more streamlined adaptation projects across California.
