Coastal Community Adaptation Tool
This website was developed to help Atlantic rural coastal communities plan for the effects of climate change. The website includes two tools and a number of resources found by clicking the different tabs above:
- A Decision Tree that allows you to answer questions related to flooding or erosion issues. The decision tree will then provide a variety of adaptation options.
- A Community Profile where you answer questions regarding your community’s strengths related to climate changing adaptation. Based on the responses, the tool provides approaches for improving the community’s capacity to address the impacts of climate change.
- A Guidance Document, in three parts, that provides detailed information on land use planning and engineering tools for climate change adaptation, as well as how to select among these tools.
- A Climate Change Coastal Primer that provides a summary of climate change issues, coastal processes, and coastal risks such as erosion and flooding.
