  2. Gulf of Mexico Alliance “A partnership of the states of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, with the goal of significantly increasing regional collaboration to enhance the ecological and economic health of the Gulf of Mexico.”

  3. Coastal Community Resilience Priority Issue Team MISSION: Coordinate and enhance efforts of local, state, federal, business and non-profit partners to assist coastal communities and ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico region in becoming more resilient in structure and function.

  4. Resilience is the capacity of both Social and Environment System’s ability to adapt to and recover from change

  5. Tools for Communities • StormSmart Coasts • StormSmart Connect • Resilience Index • Homeowner Handbooks • Sea-Level Rise Modeling

  6. StormSmart Coasts • Clearinghouse • State-specific information • New tools, funding opportunities • Case studies

  7. StormSmart Coasts One-Stop Resource for Coastal Decision Makers Working to Make Their Communities More Resilient • news • before the storm • during the storm • after the storm • funding

  8. StormSmart Connect Professional Networking Site for Coastal Decision Makers Helps people work together more easily and efficiently > 250 coastal decision makers registered

  9. what you can do with it send form/joingroups create a profile share files messages and find others • Organizational • Plan events • Interests • Ad hoc • documents • PDFs • Photos

  10. Resilience Index • Self-assessment • Identify community strengths • Identify weaknesses • Generate dialog across your community

  11. Resilience Index • Self-assessment • Identify community strengths • Identify weaknesses • Generate dialog across your community

  12. Homeowner Handbooks • Overview of regional hazards • Steps and tools for protecting your family and your property http://ms.stormsmartcoasts.org/handbook

  13. Features Displays potential future sea levels Provides simulations of sea level rise at local landmarks Communicates the spatial uncertainty of mapped sea levels Models potential marsh migration due to sea level rise Overlays social and economic data onto potential sea level rise Examines how tidal flooding will become more frequent with sea level rise Sea-Level Rise Modeling • Features • *Displays potential future sea levels • *Provides simulations of sea level rise at local landmarks • *Communicates the spatial uncertainty of mapped sea levels • *Models potential marsh migration due to sea level rise • *Overlays social and economic data onto potential sea level rise • *Examines how tidal flooding will become more frequent with sea level rise http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/slrviewer
