Bay Adapt Leadership Group Urges Adoption of Joint Platform

This month the Bay Adapt Leadership Group reached a consensus to implement the revised Joint Platform, which includes nine ambitious actions to prepare the entire Bay Area to adapt to sea level rise. Bay Planning Coalition has been intimately involved in the development of this Joint Platform, working alongside the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and dozens of other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive regional shoreline adaptation strategy that helps all communities and stakeholders address the looming threat posed by rising sea levels. In the coming months, BPC will continue to work with BCDC to gather additional input on how this framework should be implemented, and advocate for funding to ensure that the region can turn this plan into action.
