Adaptation Roadmap



San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC)




The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission's Adaptation Roadmap: A Practitioner's Guide to Plan and Implement a Collaborative, Equitable, Integrative, and Flexible Approach for Sea Level Rise Adaptation is designed for those who have completed a sea level rise vulnerability assessment and are ready to transition from planning to implementation. The Adaptation Roadmap introduces the landscape of sea level rise adaptation, supports decision-making for actionable outcomes, and embeds four foundational pillars in adaptation to be collaborative, equitable, integrative, and advance a flexible adaptation pathways approach. It is designed to be an easy-to-navigate resource that provides both a big picture overview of the key components of sea level rise adaptation, and access to in-depth guidance and resources on specific adaptation topics. Each of the six chapters of the Adaptation Roadmap also have corresponding Workbooks to help users achieve specific outcomes.
