PLEASE JOIN US FOR A CALIFORNIA COASTAL RESILIENCE NETWORK WEBINAR, Nov 29, 2016 from 10:30AM to 12:00PM
Coastal Commission staff spent a significant portion of the last year working on a synthesis of vulnerability information from a variety of sources including input from Coastal Commission staff in the District offices, local governments, and review of completed vulnerability assessments. This information will help prioritize future Commission efforts in addressing hazards and vulnerabilities related to sea level rise with a specific focus on Coastal Act resources most at risk. The Coastal Commission website will also host a new mapping tool to highlight and provide vulnerability information on a county level, with special attention given to four case study areas.
