Sea Level Rise Planning in a Pandemic

On October 5th, Bay Planning Coalition‘s Sustainable Waterfronts Committee hosted special guest, Rachel Ethlers, who presented on What Threat Does Sea-Level Rise Pose to California, a follow up report to Preparing for Rising Seas. This report describes available research on the numerous ways in which sea-level rise threatens the state and was written to help the Legislature and the public deepen their knowledge on the risks posed by sea-level rise. With over 50 members in attendance, Ehlers elaborated on how this report specifically takes into consideration the pandemic and resulting economic downturn, and how the state can continue to prepare for climate threats despite the financially constrained environment.  BPC is committed to working with the state and regional agencies to urgently prepare the San Francisco Bay Area for the impacts of sea level rise.
