Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project

2019

The Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project developed science-based recommendations for shore zone management along the Hudson River in eastern New York. The Project and recommendations are focused on natural and nature-based shoreline protection against storm surge and sea level rise. Landowners, land managers, engineers, and other decision-makers can find guidance on permitting, natural shoreline engineering and design, and best management practices to meet adaptation needs (eg. flooding and erosion protection) while enhancing ecological functions of the Hudson’s shorelines.

Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios (VCAPS)

2011

Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios (VCAPS) is a facilitated, scenario-building process that enables users to construct and display causal pathways that link climate stressors, vulnerabilities, and consequences with appropriate local adaptation options. The Social and Environmental Research Institute (SERI) has developed this participatory mediated modeling process with the initial goal of examining the support VCAPS can offer climate change adaptation planning by local decision makers from coastal communities.

Mission Creek Sea Level Rise Adaptation Study - San Francisco, California

September 2016

This report presents a high-level vulnerability assessment along with seven adaptation design concepts for Mission Creek and the Mission Bay neighborhood adjacent to the San Francisco Bay in San Francisco, California. This adaptation study seeks to inform sea level rise resilient redevelopment in Mission Bay - one of the largest redevelopment projects in the city of San Francisco. Though focused around Mission Creek, the process and design ideas detailed in this report can be replicated in other parts of the Bay Area.
