SA1.2: Gain understanding of social, economic and political factors affecting shoreline habitat
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Gain a better understanding of the social, economic, and political factors currently affecting habitat.
Desired Outcome - Enhanced understanding of land-use, regulations, and economic context improves landscape-scale restoration and protection planning to yield the most ecological benefit.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Continue to improve geospatial shoreline armor inventory including armor attributes (such as elevation, type).
- Integrated physical, biological, and shoreline modification datasets with SMP zoning or infrastructure datasets.
- Evaluate economic costs of alternative shoreline protection design options.
- Describe who the intended users of the final product will be and how they will engage in the project.
- If proposing an economic study, describe how your project will address both the short-term (construction) and long-term (maintenance) costs
- Describe how you will use existing protocols for new data collection (For spatial data refer to the Partnership’s draft Recommendations for Shoreline Armor Monitoring protocols.
- If new sampling/surveys are proposed, describe how new data collection will build upon and enhance existing data and will be used to improve decision-making. (For shoreline spatial data refer to Coastal Geologic Services. 2017. Beach Strategies Phase 1 Summary Report. ESRP Learning Project #14-2308.)
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
