Coastal Resilience to Climate Change: Developing a Generalizable Method for Assessing Vulnerability and Adaptation of Mangroves and Associated Ecosystems

Project Summary

The purpose of the project is to develop a generalizable method and process to develop an effective adaptation strategy that could be adapted in different sites within common ecosystems. The project will focus its initiatives on a single ecosystem type - mangrove with near shore coral reefs. Further, the project will initiate pilot initiatives to test the adaptation strategy in the ecosystem to address and ameliorate climate change impacts. The overall goal of the project is to increase the resilience of vulnerable mangrove and coral reef ecosystems to the impacts of climate change.
