Fantastic Tool Anonymous This tool assesses vulnerabilities in shoreline, bay and governance and proposes strategies to address each. The climate change strategies include examples of “mainstreaming” climate change planning into existing planning efforts in order to be good stewards of the limited resources available to local governments (to include “no regret” strategies).  It also describes an adaptation planning process they developed that allows for flexibility in the strategies as new data analytical tools become available. Even though this tools is focused on strategies for a coastal area’s vulnerabilities, the process and some of the strategies themselves are applicable to other geographical areas and vulnerabilities.  While the scope of this tool may be more feasible to implement in larger population jurisdictions, the concepts are applicable to jurisdictions of all sizes.

Comprehensive tool Matthew Davis Living With a Rising Bay is a comprehensive report that walks readers through the process of assessing impacts, identifying vulnerabilities and adaptation planning. Although the tool is complex, there are takeaways relevant to any community grappling with the threat of rising sea-levels.  5 stars
