Roadmap to Support Local Climate Resilience: Lessons from the Rising Tides Summit. World Resources Institute. C. Forbes Tompkins, Nathan Cogswell. December 2016
This paper presents a roadmap of eight priority federal policy opportunities that build on the recommendations from the 2015 Rising Tides Summit, a first-of-its-kind bipartisan gathering of nearly 40 U.S. mayors and local elected officials from 18 of the 23 coastal U.S. states. The policy roadmap identifies key opportunities for the federal government to assist local communities with climate resilience efforts that can protect homes and jobs, build infrastructure that will last, preserve tourist towns and beaches, safeguard military bases, and ensure the longevity of ports.
