Description

The San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative identified emerging legal risks to local governments concerning sea level rise and spotlighted expertise and knowledge gaps on these issues among their members. The Collaborative, as part of a large NOAA-funded resiliency project, commissioned a report by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI). ELI analyzes five strategies for dealing with sea level rise impacts, and for each of the 5 strategies, provides an overview of the general legal risk and an outline of the legal context. After discussing that information, ELI describes a set of possible scenarios that local governments could face around this strategy.
