SA2.1: Collaborative, multi-benefit groups develop a restoration or protection plan for shorelines
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Collaborative, multi-benefit groups develop a plan that prioritizes locations to restore or protect
Desired Outcome - Broadly supported shoreline plans use available data to balance the ecological, social, and economic outcomes to achieve the protection and restoration of shoreline processes, structure, and function.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Develop or improve workshops, forums, newsletters, or websites able to promote nearshore project networking, coordination and showcase success stories throughout the region.
- Develop a library of successful projects that were able to leverage resources or projects to improve the ecosystem outcomes.
- Develop a communication strategy to engage large, industrial shoreline users in nearshore restoration.
- Quantify the impact shoreline armoring has on nearshore habitat that is, or was historically used, by protected and important species.
- • Allocate staff time and resources for participation in inter-agency and intra-agency coordination efforts.
- Scale-up successful pilot projects into regional programs.
- Develop a regional agreement on how to prioritize nearshore habitat protection and restoration.
- Create a forum to discuss and develop an emergency preparedness plan or toolkit as it relates to abrupt sea level change due to a major earthquake or large and intense storms.
- Describe how enabling factors and barriers have been addressed to allow for successful planning.
- Describe the datasets, protocols and analyses that will be used.
- Describe how your project will leverage existing programs and integrates into the broader shoreline planning landscape.
- Describe the strategy that will be used to bring in the relevant stakeholder groups.
- Describe how sea level rise and other climate change projections will be incorporated into planning activities.
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.
