key points
Key Points
  • Coastlines, now and even more so in the future, are especially vulnerable to threats posed by tides and coastal storms, due to geologic processes, changing climate, and ongoing development of coastline
  • We must unambiguously communicate the nature and intent of risk reduction measures: natural, nature-based, nonstructural, structural
  • Natural and nature-based measures are capable of improving the quality and resilience of economic, ecologic, and social systems
  • USACE has long recognized the value of integrated approaches to risk reduction incorporating natural and nature-based features in addition to nonstructural and structural measures (Jadwin, MsCIP)
  • Quantification of performance of coastal risk reduction measures is a knowledge gap that should be addressed in the near future
