US - A Blueprint for Coastal Adaptation: Uniting Design, Economics, and Policy

A Blueprint for Coastal Adaptation: Uniting Design, Economics, and Policy (Publication Date: May 20, 2021) edited by Carolyn Kousky, Billy Fleming, and Alan M. Berger, identifies a bold new research and policy agenda for coastal adaptation and provides implementable options to help protect coastal communities against increased risk while preserving their economic value, natural environments, and cultural values.
