The webinar, whose full title is "Regional Collaboration to Advance the Use of Nature-Based Solutions in New England," will begin with a brief overview of the regional context and history of collaboration between five coastal New England States (Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine) to address coastal hazards. Focus will then turn to a regional project completed in 2017 to assess the state of the practice of living shorelines in New England. Findings of the assessment will be presented along with the project type profiles profiles (dune restoration, beach nourishment, coastal bank protection, marsh creation and living breakwaters) and an applicability index, two tools developed as part of the assessment to help shoreline managers to consider a range of nature-based shoreline management practices. The course will then shift focus to an ongoing project designed to measure the effectiveness and impacts of coastal nature-based infrastructure practices in New England. Register here!
