This Tool Kit provides local and state governments and their citizens with practical knowledge to help adapt to sea-level rise in a prudent and balanced manner. After laying out the problem in clear terms, based on current scientific consensus, the Tool Kit offers a menu of generally used legal devices that can reduce future harms. A strong theme of the Tool Kit is that local governments have significant legal authority and tools now to plan for future changes. It also recognizes that not all tools are available in or suitable for all communities, and so anticipates and supports choice of approaches by each local and state government. It seeks to empower, not direct or judge.
Climate Change Toolkit
By Sandy Van Sant
practical tool for those working in coastal areas, albeit quite long. The contained information is valuable.
I don't live in a coastal area, but it seems like this tool has some great information for those that do.
