Coastal Communities around the world are experiencing unprecedented change resulting from population growth in coastal regions and increased vulnerability to natural hazards. Resilient coastal communities plan for and take action to mitigate the risks from coastal hazards, increase the pace of recovery from destructive events, and adapt to changing environments.

This four-hour “Coastal Community Resilience” course will assist to raise awareness of the hazards faced by coastal communities, the potential social, economic and environmental impacts of these hazards, approaches to prevent or mitigate hazard impacts, and tools to increase resilience. The course will emphasize target capabilities to enhance preparedness for and response to natural disasters, demonstrate how to integrate risk and community-based collaborative strategies into plans and programs, and introduce tools that help communities assess individual risks and vulnerabilities.
