Climate Ready Estuaries Annual Report 2009
Climate Ready Estuaries (CRE) is a partnership between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Estuary Programs (NEPs) to build capacity among coastal managers to improve the resilience of coastal areas to the impacts of climate change. CRE provides tools and assistance to help NEPs and coastal communities in their efforts to:
- Assess climate change vulnerabilities,
- Engage and educate stakeholders,
- Develop and implement adaptation strategies, and
- Share lessons learned with other coastal managers.
This document focuses on the accomplishments of the existing CRE Partners. This publication, together with the 2010 and 2011 Progress Reports, provides an overview of the design and accomplishments of CRE to date.
