Coastal Resilience

The earth’s rising temperatures are already leading to increased sea levels, more intense rainfall and other damaging weather events. Climate change is expected to have an especially dramatic impact on coastal communities and the ecosystems on which they depend. CPIC’s Coastal Resilience Working Group aims to attract private investment in solutions that restore and preserve the integrity of coastal ecosystems and aid communities in adapting to rising seas and increased flooding.

The working group is co-led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).
