Blue Earth Consultants (Blue Earth), a Division of Eastern Research Group, Inc. (ERG), is coordinating the fourth annual coastal resilience workshop at UCI on July 18th-19th, 2018. The workshop is sponsored by UCI, through the Empowering Sustainability Initiative, UCI Oceans, and the Newkirk Center for Science and Society. Building on the success of the workshops in 2015-2017, UCI will connect coastal planners, practitioners, funders, and decision-makers to share lessons learned and strategies for building coastal resilience on the local to national levels. Participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the landscape of coastal resilience activities across communities.
Specifically, participants will gain insight on:
-Lessons learned for planning and implementation at the local and regional levels;
-Tools and resources for informing planning decisions; and
-Green infrastructure solutions to reduce impacts of coastal hazards.
