Promoting Successful Local Coastal Resiliency Policies and Programs: Addressing Key Knowledge Gaps

  • On June 25, 2019
  • Workshops

CCURN hosted a series of workshops entitled Promoting Successful Local Coastal Resiliency Policies and Programs: Addressing Key Knowledge Gaps. They were held at Stony Brook University in Suffolk County, New York, and another at Monmouth University in New Jersey. The objective of the workshops was to bring together local practitioners and policy makers in the New York-New Jersey Metropolitan Region to evaluate emerging knowledge and data needs regarding how coastal residents and business owners are responding to, or might respond to, flood risk resiliency efforts associated with extreme storms, storm surge, sunny day/nuisance flooding, and sea level rise. As an output from the workshops, household surveys will be developed to address the gaps identified by policy- makers to improve effectiveness and communication of resiliency planning efforts. The surveys will be administered by Stony Brook and Monmouth students in conjunction with CCRUN researchers.
