Climate Ready Estuaries Annual Reports
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. Annual reports complement prior versions, such as the 2009 CRE Progress Report, 2010 Progress Report, and 2011 Progress Report. These documents provide a summary on the design and accomplishments of CRE to date.
