Coastal Resilience  

Coastal resilience is defined as a community being prepared for coastal changes and impacts and recovering from coastal change impacts such as natural disasters. 


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) aids coastal communities by enhancing their coastal resilience, which they define as "a community's ability to "bounce back" after hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and flooding, rather than simply reacting to impacts".

NOAA Coastal Resilience Impacts

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) offers tools and resources to help coastal communities strengthen their coastal resilience such as funds directed toward coastal resilience projects.
