Resilience

Impacts from climate change, including prolonged drought and rising seas, jeopardize the health of all parts of the Estuary. Our work seeks to bolster the resilience of Estuary ecosystems, shorelines, and communities to climate change by: increasing resilience of tidal habitats and tributaries; increasing resilience of communities at risk; and promoting integrated, coordinated, multi-benefit approaches.
