Living along the coast is great, but with it comes increased risks from a variety of natural hazards, including climate change.
The NOAA Coastal Services Center helps communities take the steps needed to reduce harm to their communities and the planet. Commonly known as adaptation planning, a wide array of tools and services are available to help communities through this process, from conservation strategies to A to Z information about coastal inundation.
We certainly don’t have all the answers. But we do have a commitment to provide tools that help each community find the answers that work best for its situation.
