Follow-up on climate change grants in Massachusetts

New publication in the Library
Bobbak Talebi, network member and Coastal Planner at the Department of Ecology, has created a database of WA communities that are adapting to sea level rise. This was created for the Coastal Training Program's new class, Sea Level Rise Adaptation: Planning Opportunities for Washington State. This database has been added to the CHRN library. We hope to have similar documents for other hazards available soon. If you know of a community taking action for sea level rise or other coastal hazards, email me through the link at the top of this page.
