Educating Coastal Communities About Sea Level Rise

2018 – The Educating Coastal Communities About Sea Level Rise (ECoAS) Project

The Educating Coastal Communities About Sea-level Rise (ECoAS) Project is a co-led initiative designed to translate scientific climate change research into useable information to educate coastal communities within Atlantic Canada about the need for planning for future sea-level rise impacts. The Ecology Action Centre has teamed up with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to create this informative website along with workshops for coastal residents, fishers, and municipalities about rising seas that are specific to the Atlantic region. The website aims to: 1) Help communities learn about sea level rise and how it affects them, 2) Provide access to tools that have been developed locally with the latest climate change information available, 3) Illustrate where sea level rise impacts are happening through interactive mapping, and 4) Show the need for incorporating sea level rise into future planning strategies.
