The publication, Building
Coastal Resilience for Greater US Security, is the product of a series
of discussions held between June and October of 2017. These discussions
centered around pathways to solutions for our climate-related coastal
challenges and were hosted jointly by the Hoover Institution, the Stanford
Woods Institute for the Environment, and the Woodrow Wilson International
Center for Scholars. The dialogues sought to catalyze insights on best
practices toward climate resilient action on the ground. Across the
conversations, the focus brought together a full range of perspectives, from
cutting-edge science to ongoing policy and practice. Building on the success of
these dialogues and this accompanying publication, the three organizations are
in the planning phase of another set of dialogues to continue the much-needed work
of climate policy-craft and implementation. More information forthcoming.

need is a natural disaster version of Groundhog Day. Read
