Helping coastal communities become more resilient in the face of climate change and other hazards requires strategic and holistic planning. Incorporating coastal conservation as a climate adaptation strategy increases resilience by sustaining important ecosystem services, including flood storage, storm surge buffers, erosion control, water quality maintenance, and wildlife habitat.
The NOAA Coastal Services Center provides spatial data, analysis and visualization tools, and trainings that communities need to successfully incorporate conservation priorities into their community planning processes.
