California Coastal Resilience Network
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.
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.
Individuals or organizations can become Network members by subscribing to the CA Coastal Resilience Network email distribution list. Members receive notifications about Network activities and can participate on monthly Network webinars and occasional in-person events. Network members are encouraged to suggest webinar topics and to share their own work on future webinars.
