With limited budgets, communities must prioritize options for addressing flood hazards and the costs of those options. Coastal green infrastructure is a strategy for reducing impacts from storm surge, sea level rise, and precipitation and includes approaches across different scales. This presentation will highlight resources to help communities go from opportunistic to strategic green infrastructure planning: Considering Climate Change in Coastal Conservation Planning – an online resource that provides six succinct steps, key resources for each, and links to the full guidance developed; Green Infrastructure Mapping Guide – an online tutorial to help spatial analysts use GIS to prioritize green infrastructure to help reduce storm surge and sea level rise impacts; A Guide to Assessing Green Infrastructure Costs and Benefits for Flood Reduction – a six-step watershed based approach to documenting the costs of flooding due to precipitation, projecting increased flooding and associated costs under future land use and climate conditions, and calculating the benefits and costs of reducing flooding with green infrastructure over the long term; Green Infrastructure Protective Services Animation – helps community members and local decision-makers better understand the storm protection benefits from green infrastructure.
