DescriptionThe objective of the project is to promote adaptation to the consequences of climate impacts in the coastal wetlands of the Gulf of Mexico, through the implementation of pilot measures that would provide information on the costs and benefits of alternative approaches to reduce their vulnerability. The project also seeks to assess the overall impacts of climate change on national water resource planning, including the identification of potential response options, with a focus on coastal wetlands and associated watersheds. The experience from the project pilots is intended to inform the government’s future adaptation strategy and development programs in the Gulf region.
