January 20: The Coast Resilience Puzzle
Presenter: Lisa Auermuller, Jacques Cousteau
What are the pieces & how do they fit? Jacques Cousteau’s strong partnerships with local communities, state agencies, and NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management positioned it well to put federal adaptation tools and decision support frameworks to work for the state. Lisa brings a unique insider’s perspective to this topic. Since the Getting to Resilience technical assistance project launched in 2013, almost 60 New Jersey communities have put it to work as they seek to reduce vulnerability and increase preparedness through planning, mitigation, and adaptation.
