Adapting to Sea Level Rise: A Guide to California's Coastal Communities

January 2012

'Adapting to Sea Level Rise: A Guide for California’s Coastal Communities'  was created to serve as a guide for California’s coastal managers and community planners to develop adaptation plans for sea level rise (SLR) that are suited to their local conditions and communities. The guide begins with background information about climate change and SLR, and an explanation of why planners in coastal communities should begin to plan for SLR and the associated coastal hazards. The remaining sections describe the processes of performing SLR vulnerability assessments and risk analysis for the development of adaptation plans that can be tailored specifically to individual communities.
