Over the past several years in California, new tools, models, and guidance have been developed to address the impacts of coastal climate change. These resources are primarily targeted at the local coastal decision-makers who are on the front lines of sea level rise and storm surge impacts, and must prepare their communities for the future. To help local decision-makers use these new resources, a coalition of public, private, and non-profit organizations collaborated to provide practical support for coastal climate change adaptation planning practitioners. This effort, called “Lifting the Fog”, took place in 2014 through a series of facilitated dialogues, trainings, and collaborative product development.
This website is a result of that collaboration. Here, you can find information about sea level rise adaptation tools and resources.
