Coastal Resilience 2.0 Tools Are Speedier and More Accessible

November 15, 2013 -- The Coastal Resilience 2.0 interactive suite of Web mapping tools has just been released, providing improvements that enable users to learn more about their area storm surge and sea level rise risks as well as their natural resources and economic assets. It also enables users to identify nature-based solutions that reduce socio-economic vulnerability to coastal hazards.

The 2.0 tools, accessible through the Coastal Resilience Network, are faster and open-source, work globally, operate on tablets, and make sharing results and data easy. In addition, new Coastal Resilience apps enable users to explore risks and restoration, future habitat and coastal defense, and flood and sea level rise scenarios.

Coastal Resilience 2.0 covers many regions, including a U.S. national and global application; eight U.S. states; Puget Sound, Washington; Ventura County, California; four countries in Latin America; and three island nations in the Caribbean region.

Since the original 2008 release of the Coastal Resilience tools, The Nature Conservancy and its core partners have worked with government agencies and communities to better prepare for sea-level rise and storm surge as well as to understand the role of natural habitat in reducing risk. 

Core partners involved in the development of these tools include The Nature Conservancy, University of Southern Mississippi, Natural Capital Project, NOAA Coastal Services Center, and Association of State Floodplain Managers. For more information, email Email Contact.
