This program will provide a Coastal Commission staff perspective on the challenge of planning for sea level rise and coastal hazards at both the state and local levels. It will cover four main topics: background on the science of climate change and sea level rise, how sea level rise relates to the California Coastal Commission’s core regulatory program, recent projects and programs undertaken by Coastal Commission staff to address sea level rise, and specific examples of recent regulatory actions that have included sea level rise adaptation measures. It will also touch on other state projects and directives to address climate change, as well as the Coastal Commission’s grant program that supports Local Coastal Program updates with an emphasis on sea level rise.
