Local Strategies for Addressing Climate Change, Vol. 2

June 2010

This resource is a collection of case studies that ran in the NOAA Coastal Services Center's (CSC) magazine 'Coastal Services. ' These stories document states' efforts to combat climate change and, in particular, sea-level rise. The solutions discussed are varied. On a national level, the CSC describes the work the EPA's Climate Ready Estuaries Program has done to help local estuary managers adapt to climate change. Meanwhile, ICLEI and the state of Oregon have developed new materials and programs that relate to communicating about issues related to coastal adaptation.
