The Coastal Plan Alignment Compass supports California’s coastal communities as they develop and coordinate local plans. There are potential benefits to aligning these planning efforts, including achieving multiple climate mitigation and adaptation goals, reducing duplication, and avoiding potential policy conflicts. The Compass provides an overview of the required elements and best practices for each plan, discusses concrete strategies to leverage vulnerability assessments to help make them usable and applicable to all plans, and identifies crosswalk opportunities and tricky spots to avoid. It also illustrates tools and state guidance documents that support the incorporation of hazards into planning.
