Description

The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) leads the development of Coastal Resilience, an approach and online decision support tool to help address the devastating effects of climate change and natural disasters, which it started in 2007. The Monterey Bay region is part of this global TNC network. TNC is working with a suite of partners to find multi-benefit adaptation solutions. TNC has done analysis exploring adaptation approaches for the highway that maximize the use and persistence of natural infrastructure in the face of climate change. Using cost benefit analysis methods for this region TNC finds that in almost all cases, the least economically beneficial adaptation approach involves shoreline armoring.
