Highlighting an upcoming OST Report

Ocean Science Trust is pleased to announce an upcoming report titled “Toward More Equitable Nature-based Coastal Adaptation in California” expected June 2022. Through generous support from the Honda Marine Science Foundation, this year-long project is in response to the growing interest in living approaches to shoreline management that emphasize not only ecological and physical outcomes, but also advance social equity for frontline communities and California Native American tribes who are and will continue to be disproportionately impacted by climate change. The report includes evidence-based recommendations and science needs intended to provide framing and insights to support advancement towards more equitable approaches to nature-based coastal adaptation and shoreline management in California.
