Along with the Army Corps and other federal, local government, academic and NGO partners, the Coastal States Organization (CSO) has released a new series of tools, website, and a primer on shoreline stabilization that promotes an engineering approach referred to as a Systems Approach to Geomorphic Engineering, or SAGE. This approach integrates 'green' nature-based measures with 'gray' structures at a local scale.
The SAGE website (http://sagecoast.org/) provides more than 100 examples of ongoing or completed projects that incorporate SAGE principles. It also includes a calendar of SAGE events, news posts and technical guidance for website viewers.
