FloodRISE modelers and social ecologists joined state agency representatives, non-profit and community leaders, elected officials, and tribal leaders for the 2nd California Coastal Resilience: Communities in Action workshop at UC Irvine. Sponsored by UCI Oceans, Empowering Sustainability Initiative, Newkirk Center for Science and Society, and Blue Earth Consultants, LLC, the July 21st workshop covered a range of processes and tradeoffs inherent in coastal resiliency decision-making. FloodRISE PI Brett Sanders and Co-PI David Feldman joined graduate student researchers Adam Luke and Kristen Goodrich for a presentation of new findings about mapping and communicating flood risk at the local level. Other areas of focus included case studies of successful and unsuccessful coastal resilience, strategies for building political support, and an introduction to the unique issues facing vulnerable communities.
