RCAP Database | Sustainable Communities and Transportation Planning: SP-5

Conduct new or utilize existing vulnerability analyses and other technical tools as they are developed as a means for identifying Adaptation Action Areas as well as other areas requiring adaptation improvements related to coastal flooding and sea level rise, to provide guidance for adaptation planning efforts in areas especially at risk to sea level rise, tidal flooding and other related impacts of climate change.
