Coastal Adaptation Report Card 2021

Coastal Adaptation Report Card 2021

Through increased funding, planning, regulation, and restoration, Maryland has become a leader in coastal and climate adaptation. There is, however, a need to clarify adaptation goals to measure progress and hold the state accountable. The Maryland Coastal Adaptation Report Card, a collaboration between the Adaptation and Resiliency Work Group (ARWG) of the Maryland Commission on Climate Change (MCCC) and University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Integration and Application Network (UMCES-IAN), begins to address this need. The Coastal Adaptation Report Card gives a snapshot of current adaptation status in Maryland’s coastal zone, and establishes a framework for measuring future progress.
